Hey guys, just found a 12v dc adapter to banana jacks.
Just thought someone might like a ready made adapter from radio shack for ten bucks or so. My triton 2 works great with it

At home I use a converted pc power supply as well. I thought this would simplify field charging.

Thanks for the post, I can now charge in the field other then using friends batteries. My car battery is under the rear seat and not easy to access. I do though have 12V outlets in the back.

I have one of these. Your vehicle may not output enough throught the cigarette outlet to run your charger - mine will not.

Worth a try for $10 though.

I find a jump start unit works very well.
