    Question power supply adapter?



    I'm looking for an adapter that will convert a cigarette lighter plug to a round tip positive plug. My dew controller unit has the lighter style plug and I want to hook it up to one of the lithium power supplies, which only have the small round plug receptacle (ala celestron/synta style). And I'm usually not one to go cutting wires and splicing things back together. Any ideas?

    I have a couple of power cords with cigarette ends (not like these) with multiple tips. Center can be positive or negative depending how you install it on the cord.

    Sorry for the typo. Tried to edit the earlier post but am unable to save edited posts. Some server updates may still have some things wonky.

    Thanks, Rick! That's exactly what I'm looking for. You da man!

    I knew they had to exist somewhere, but I couldn't put the proper search words together to come up with the correct results.
