Default AC/DC Adapter For Trex 150 Charger?

Anybody have a link to the best AC/DC adapter for the Trex150x and it's included DC charger? I'd like to just plug it in the wall outlet. Any links or ideas about the ideal voltage, polarity and current?

I know it's possible because Align even references it in their diagrams. But I don't want to plug any old adapter into it.

Thank you

Current 600mA to 3A will do
Plug is ctr + so it is easy to cut and swap wires to get that
AC to DC Wall Adapters most are 120V AC to 12V DC with 1-2A output. Any
Goodwill store
Has boxes and boxes just sitting around and priced 1-2$ so the only thing you have to look for is the plug size that works
or go to
Walmart wall charger expensive but easy done
Best Buy expensive

Here Align talks about the adapter... but of course does not mention what size the plug is or how to get one.

Does anyone have a link to the exact AC/DC adapter that they know works and is sized correctly? Looks like we need at least 1.5A of input current and the big question.... what size is the plug?

Here's a 12V- 3A power supply from Walmart for 10 bucks. It looks really close.... but my luck, it will not fit the plug.

I posed this question a couple months ago. I wish someone would have just posted a link and made it easy for me so that is what I will do. This is the one that I purchased off of Amazon. $6.98....I have easily used it over a hundred times by now and it works perfectly.
