Default Field charging my XP6102?

Hi Danny! I realized after buying my XP6102 that the charging polarity is reversed compared to 'other' brands; is that correct? So then in order to charge my Tx and Rx batteries at the field with my power panel which has simple + and - banana jacks what do I do? Make an adapter harness and plug pos into neg? I noticed Hobbico sells radio charging jacks and one is specified for JR. Can I use that? Do they just make a harness with crossed leads?

Thanks!

Yes, JR is different polarity in the charge plug than other brands, JR is center pin negative. I'm not sure on the hobbico part, likely that is what they have done, but I can not say for certain, you would need to ask them to know for sure. With a banana jack set up, you can likely plug the red into the black and vice versa to get the polarity is correct, but verify this is correct before charging.

Thanks Danny. I figured it was probably a simple solution.
