Battery Holder with female panel connector installed
I soldered a wire from the centre pin of the panel connector to the prefitted positive battery tab at the holders main contacts end & from the panel connectors outer tab to the prefitted negative battery tab at the end of the holder closest to the female panel connector.
I made sure to keep and not damage the holders inbuilt circuit board, this is needed to tell the camera that a battery is in deed fitted, amongst other things.
After checking I had made good connections via continuity, I filled around critical points with hot glue for security and then super glued the lid of the holder to its base.
I then cut off the cigarette lighter adaptor from one of the two cables I had bought and replaced it with one of the 2.1mm male plugs.
I have left the regular 2.1mm male plug on the end of this cable at the moment and will test its security, (firmness of connection), over time. I can change it to a lockable version in the future if I find that it tends to slip out under certain conditions.
