a charger for a flashlight died. now i found another charger or similar output but the plug doesn't match. so, i've cut the dead charger from the wire.

here is a photo of the good charger: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/37/img1284hr.jpg/

here is a photo of the "hot" plug and the wire (one black and one black w/ white stripe) i want to connect to it: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/30/img1287l.jpg/

which wire goes in the hole and which on the outside?

Thanks!

ps. let me know if this is the way to insert images. it's been a while since i've been on this site

The "bad wall wart has 50% more oomph than the new one. Don't know if that is a factor or not in suitability for your new intended use.

The main thing here is polarity. The positive (+) side of the output must connect to the center of the connector plug. You can use a tester to determine which lead (white stripe or plain) is the positive one.
