I ordered the parts mentioned and can’t figure out what connector to use on the center pin of the charging port… Any ideas.?
If I’m understanding you correctly, you’ll want to solder that connection. I find it is best to solder on the wire (I think you have to use something light like 18 or 22 awg) then slide on the heat shrink tubing. Do the inside connection first, then the outside. I’ll see if I have a photo of how I did it.
I dug around for a picture, but I don’t seem to have a good close-up. I do have this:
Though that only shows the finished product. In this case, I wrapped both solder points individually, and then one larger shrink tube for the entire thing.
Basically… you want to thread the bare wire through the little needle eye/prong in the middle. Then, bend the wire back (or forward) so it holds itself there while you can solder it in place. If I recall, the outer prong does not have a hole in it, so you just have to solder it down sandwich-style. 🙂
Do you know if the charger shuts off when it is done or is it more or less a power supply only?
If you’re referring to the Monster Scooter 18v charger… you’ll notice the light goes from RED to GREEN when charging is complete. As far as I know, there is no harm leaving the charger connected once charging has completed.
