Electronic question

I asked this on Docs as well, not sure how much traffic that site gets so Ill post it here as well.


We just bought an elliptical really cheap off of Craigslist and the plug where it plugs into the wall doesn't exist. It will run off of 4 "D" batteries. Will it just be as simple to turn the positive and negative leads for the batteries and solder them onto a female plug and then just get a 6v power adapter? Seems like it would be too easy to do this, so I'm reluctant to do it with out asking others first.

Thanks for any help.

Nick

I think all power coming into a house that you get from outlets is AC power.

Edit:
Now that I look at my plug it converts AC -> DC 6v.

Never mind the previous owner was an idiot and there was actually a plug at the bottom of the elliptical . So now it works plugged into the wall .
