Question about JUMP START SYSTEM

Vec010bd AC charger part # 5140045-34 question . . .

This is in regards to the Vector / Black & Decker Start-It jump starter, model # Vec010bd AC charger. Like others, somehow my AC adapter (for a good, slow float charge) has gone missing.

I have seen reference to part # 5140045-34 (barrel pin 12v 500Ma).

If anyone knows the correct dimensions and polarity of the plug (it is not listed on the battery device - I'd imagine it was properly listed on the missing AC adapter itself) I would love to go find a Universal AC adapter that would fit this also.

Thanks in advance for any pointers !

    Thank you. Unfortunately, I had read through that. It lists a few other specs, but not the AC charger specifications. I'm aware that I could buy a new charger from as well.

    Good try anyway, thanks for the feedback, as I'm sure it will help others.

    I am specifically looking to find the barrel dimensions and polarity in order to locate a third party, multi-use AC adapter though.

    If anyone has that info, or a current factory AC adapter that they can read that info from, I'd appreciate it.

Barrel pin 12v 500Ma is correct. the only other required stat that you need to know is that the polarity is( ---------that's how the inside pin polarity is shown on the transformer. Go to any radio Shack, and they have this charger in stock. tell them you need a 120v. a/c input, 12v. DC 500 ma output, with the center (inside) pin positive( ).It should be less than $20.00
