lost spektrum Tx charging adapter, is there a way to get a new one?

as most probably know the spektrum wall charger ends with a servo plug, and they supply an adapter so you can use said plug to charge your Tx, well mine fell out somewhere one day and i can't find it, is there a way to get a new one? or do i just have to charge my batteries separately now or shell out 20 bucks for a whole new charger?

Make your own adapter lead.
One servo lead soldered to a 2.1mm jack plug, as attached.

If you have a dx6i get the Sanyo eneloop batteries, I found some at costco for around $20 or $25, comes with 8 AA, 4 aaa and a charger. The eneloops are way better than the spektrum batteries.

If you make your own adapter BE CAREFUL! Most older Spektrum TXs are center pin negative.

Please refer to diagram and the text within picture post #5 above..
All Spektrum Tx upto DX8 retain original JR (copy label from own design attached) based Spektrum Tx plug & socket.
Recommend Spektrum users are wise to remain with traditional plug configuration to avoid confusion/mishap when charging a pre DX8 at a later date.
