Just wondering how everyone is hooking up the 13.8VDC clip clamps from their chargers to a AC/DC power supply. I just purchased one of these bad boys: http://ramboy.com/cosel.htm

I'll use terminal lugs for the connection onto the power supply, but wasn't sure how to handle the clip clamps on the charger side.

Thank you much.

THe safest way I could think of is to make a patch cable that hook with lugs on one side and femal banna plugs on the other. Remove the gator clips and replace with male banna plugs. Get some gator clips that fit the banna plaugs so you can still use the charger on the field.

Myself, the powersupply has femal bana plugs. I have a similar setup as discribed above, but without the patch cable.

I hope this helps.

I bought some banana jacks from Radio Shack and was able to secure their posts to the terminal strip just like a wire under the little metal plates. I then clamp the alligator clips to those banana jacks. Works great.

Perhaps I can take a pic tomorrow if you would like.

I like their way better

I like their way better. But if your like me, I wanted to leave the alligator clips intact. I just took a piece of wood and screwed two eye hooks into it. I wire each eye hook to the power suppy, now I just clip on alligotar clips from my chareger.

Make it idiot-proof, and someone will make a better idiot
