  • "Egg" question on Lilliput

    I have a Lilliput 629GL-70NP and I was thinking about powering it using my M2. I have read the thread about this and one post was very interesting to me.

    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...7&postcount=75

    My plans are to snip off the cigarette lighter part of the adapter, and tie the 12V (- or +) line and ground into a molex.

    My question is, what is the polarity of the two wires that are coming from the cigarette lighter area that go into the "egg"? Which is ground, which is power?

    Thanks for any help. If anyone has pics, please post them. I can post some tonight if people need.

      Multimeters are cheap. As in less than $10:

      This meter regularly goes on sale for $2.99. Last time that happened, I bought a dozen of them.

        You could go ahead and cut the lighter plug off but leave a couple of inches with it. Then strip it back and check with a meter to see what the polarity is coming off it.
