Question Futaba Charger TX charger male connector replacement.

Good afternoon gentlemen. I have a Futaba TX and RX Charger. The RX charge lead is a male connector that I need to replace. It have 2 leads. One is Black which is Ground and the other lead is Black with a Red Strike. Please confirm that the Black lead with the Red Strike is the 4.8ydc lead. I just want to be sure before I do anything. Thanks in advance for your help.

No doubt the one with red is "+", but really don't you have a volt meter? easy to check polarity with one of those

You can check it with a volt meter. Harbor Freight has cheap ones for $7.00 or less.
If you can't afford one, check around with your friends, or school shop teacher.
The solid black lead is negative, and the red stripped lead is positive.

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I have loaned out my voltmeter and it hasn't been returned as of yet or I would have used it. I thought I was correct. but just wanted to be sure. Thanks again for the reply.

Yeah,, I hate loaning stuff out,,,

The chargers are the same as the servo wires,, just without the white signal wire,, The "+" is always the center wire

Sorry I hit the wrong key. I have since stopped loaning out things especially to family members LOL. My thinking was correct on which wire was which.
