Hello, and yes I'm still in need of a solution. Lost the power cord, have replaced it w/universal, need to know spec on polarity. Is the positive contact the center post inside the recharge port or is it the surrounding contact of the same location? New universal has polarity switch, capible of both options. Do NOT want to fry the unit.  Speaking of which mine appears different than the one you have pictured. Mine is YELLOW, very ylw, w/black rubber bottom with the added feature of a 260psi air compressor on board. Unit also provides a 12v power outlet(cigarret lighter varity) and one small LED light mounted forward, just above main spotlight. Dementions are 13.5L x 8.25H x 5W. Thanks for any help you may provide, and might I say just how impressed I am w/ your response time. Although at this time your premium service I must forego, I've bookmarked your site and "I shall return!"

If you are referring to the polarity of the DC voltage at the plug-in tip of the charger, the center pin/socket is the positive, and the outer ring is the negative.

I need to know the POLARITY of the AC adaptor to provide the correct setting using a universal adapter.

there is no polarity in ac current as ac means alternating current and that means alternating between positive to negative back to positive back to negative and so on
only dc ( direct current ) and the center pin of the plug is designated as the positive pole has polarity, the outer case being the negative
OR Are you asking the voltage of the ac adapter and the voltage of the dc output side of the adapter

I want to buy a battery charger. Where do I purchase?

The external power adapter for your device is for [6VDC - 1 Ampere]. You can use any adapter with this capacity to charge the battery inside the your Philips Da1000. Brand is not matter, but the voltage and current is. Just check the DC socket polarity. It is the main thing that ahs to be checked. Some sets will have outer (+ve), and some others have (Outer (--ve). This will be marked at the DC in terminal of your radio. It is best to be the set in hand, when you go to buy a new one. This adapter can be bought from most of the electronic spare parts selling shops at your town. Philips has designated as [6V direct current, positive pole to current pin] as pin confuguration for the AC adapter. If so outer ring connection will be (--ve). Anyway, make sure about it before buying a new one. OK.

DC voltage has a Positive and Negative polarity.

In the power jack of the speaker, the Center pin is the Positive connection. The outer shell is the Negative connection.

Center hole of the DC adapter plug - Positive.
Outer shell of the DC adapter plug - Negative

Voltage 5 Volts DC.

Need polarity chart for ac power adapter 12v 2amp

Almost without exception, the polarity of power packs is; the centre is positive (+) outside (-) In very rare cases the opposi=te is the case, but this means the outer contact is able to "short" on any metal it touches.

Need to know the polarity of the power input plug Is it center + or - Compaq presario v5000

Normally all laptops' center pin is positive and the outer cylindrical shaped metal area is negative. What is your purpose to know it? Playing with adapter may make your system dead. Be carful.

Normally, the polarity is molded next to the connecter hole; it may not be real easy to see.
If you have a digital multimeter with a 'diode' position, most devices have a diode internally installed to prevent damage in case of a bad substitution and the meter will show a value of somewhere between 500-800, typical would be in the mid-600s.
If you find that, then the meter is currently causing the internal protective diode to conduct as it would if the WRONG polarity would be applied and most meters will supply a positive voltage to the red lead for diode function.
Commonly, the center is the positive contact but this sure isn't certain.
