Hi, basically my stryfe is about to be rewired and stuff with no resistors or thermistors.
But, that's all useless if I'm running the same voltage.

So I plan to salvage a 9 volt battery connector from somewhere and add it to the stryfe.
Only problem is that I have absolutely no idea which one is my active negative and active positive.

Here is a picture of what I would imagine the wiring would look like, I apologize to the owner of the original photo.

Black is negative red is positive, the box is the battery/connector.

I'd assume this is correct, since on the inside the terminals where the white wire from the switch and the black motor from the flywheels connect are in that position.
So to complete the circuit I'd assume that that is where it needs to be soldered.

If anyone who is more proficient than a 15 year old in electrical components I would appreciate if you can confirm or deny the validity of what I have come up with. I know some people run their styfes on 12 volts from 3 trustfires on stock motors, so I would also assume that 9 volts is more than enough and is under the motor burnout limit.
Also, I apologize if this has been solved already.
I couldn't find it using search term "Styfe 9v" or "styfe 9 volt".

Pop off the AA connectors. Just go inside with some needlenose and bend that soldering tab so you can remove the whole metal assembly.

Now just run the 9volt snap through the holes and onto your wires.

that seems easier than what I mentioned.

Thank you Duke!

All you were doing is soldering the wires to the stock AA connectors, which in turn are soldered to the internal positive and negative leads.

This simply cuts out the middleman and makes for a tighter cleaner circuit.

Edit: You're welcome.

Sorry Duke, but the soldering iron I had at home was defunct so my mom went to go do it at her workplace for me...
Still pretty clean.
