Mcdevito75 here, Unless your toy has a 12 volt Battery, your auto battery charger will not work. BUT just in case, There is ared battery cable and a blck battery cable on the toy and-- a red clamp and a black clamp on the charger, Hook the red clamp to the red battery wire and the black clamp to the black battery wire, now you need to know the batterys voltage in the toy and MOST OF ALL your AUTO charger is designed only for car, truck batteries as these batteries are the wet cell type, that is unless your toy has a wet cell battery, if the battery in the Leapstar looks like a car battery count the caps on top of the battery if thwere are 6 caps the battery is 12 volt if only 3 caps the battery is 6 volts. Check with leapstar for the correct charger.

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 have a Hyundai HPD719 portable dvd player and I have lost my in car charger. Where can I buy a new one. Thanks Carl


Your best bet is likely to be Amazon.
If you can't find the specific one for your player they do sell a variety of 'universal' in car chargers for all sorts of electronic devices with a selection of inter-changeable end connectors to suit your equipment.
The charger socket on your player should have a symbol on it to indicate polarity (whether the pin or sleeve is positive or negative) it should also show the correct voltage required - check that any charger you buy covers that voltage range.

A quick question, I have an Acer Aspire 5516 and today the charger just flat out stopped working. it was a 19v 65w charger, then I had gotten a universal charger that came with 19v 75w and 19v 90w tips. I...


You do not have to be worried about the wattage. Wattage (in the case of chargers) is the capacity a charger can provide. So higer the wattage better it is. However, higher the wattage higher the price usually. Voltage has to match. But the most important thing to look for when you buy a universal adapter is the polarity. Take care to match the polarity. Polarity will be represented by a small line encircled by a circle with + AND - . If you look at it carefully you will understand that it is trying to tell you what polarity is the inner lead and the outer lead. You will see this marking on the charger and also on your laptop close to the DC in. (Usually the inside lead is positive and the outside lead is negative) However some manufacturers reverse this. (I have no idea why they do it though I think some kind of regulatory body should make a standard to avoid unsuspecting users from frying their devices). If your voltage and polarity is matching you are good to go with 65 watts or above. If this holds good, don't worry about any listings.

next to the jack on the camcorder it should have a diagram that shows polarity (a + and - sign) for the plug, the tip should be one sign and barrel or outside of the plug should show the other polarity. you have to have your plug with the correct polarity, and you have to have the correct voltage( it should say 9v or 12v or something like that) and the supply you use should be as high or higher of a current rateing as recommended in your users manual or printed on the supple that came with it.

Battery not recharging.


Look on the charger itself & it will have the correct output voltage & polarity stamped on the charger. Then get a volt meter to verify if the correct output voltage is present. If the volt meter reads less than what is stamped on the charger, then I would recommend replacing the charger at that point.

Radio shack sales a universal power adapter. <CAUTION> make sure the adapter is set to the correct voltage and that the tip is set to the correct polarity. The only other option is to order the adapter from Cobra.

I have a CMZ984 coleman portable rechargeable bug zapper.I have lost the manuel and charger for it.It is 4 watts.The company that made it for Coleman has gone out of business.It is about 2 years old.What...


The CMZ984 takes 6 volts DC at about 850 ma or 0.85 Amp. The problem is finding a plug that will attach to the Coleman charging port. Use the Radio Shack universal DC power supply. This is a little unit that comes with an assortment of plugs and has a number of switches on the Radio Shack DC power supply. (1)-Find a plug inside of the Universal DC power supply that fits without forcing, (2)-set the voltage to 6 volts and (3)-the polarity to "+". When the universal power supply is plugged into the bug zapper and the universal DC power supply set at 6 volts, turn on the BUG ZAPPER. If the lights inside turns on when the battery is dead then you probably have all switches set correctly. At yard sales, this UNIVERSAL power supply sells for about $1. It comes with a number of different plugs. Don't forget to write the voltage and polarity on the bottom of the bug zapper for the next time.
