Default Spektrum issue?!?!?

So I just upgraded to the spektrum dx3e.. great price and liked the dials instead of digital screen. My question is this:
Charging wit it says it is negative centre. I have a charger that charges the savage and the controller at once. How can i find if the charger is compatible with the spektrum.. Spektrum says 70% wont>

Basically if you have a charging lead with positive center just switch the two leads around  and it will charge it fine.

1. Take Multimeter
2. Plug in needle testers or alligator clips.
3. If alligator clips take needle and clip so you have a needle edge for the inside.
4. Plug in and measure voltage, if negative, and your negative is hooked to the center, then its right. If not, switch.

Just be careful to not touch the center to the side
