The good news: connector arrived and fits the plug perfectly.
The bad news: I didn't realize it comes in several pieces and you have
to assemble it. No instructions. I have no idea how to do this. Might
bring it to the next workshop.
Next question: what kind of wall wart do I need? I've got to find out
the battery specs before anyone can answer this.
I removed the pack but it doesn't list any specs. It is five cells. They
look like 1.2V/AA-size. I'd disassemble it (it's dead anyway!), but it
has a hard shell, not a vinyl wrap. Thus I am not sure how to break it
open. Tips? (Briefly considered using a Dremel. Then realized it could
be dangerous if the tip hit a cell.)
