I have a 9v battery pack and I need to solder the two leads to the plug and I don't know which part of the plug I should solder the red (+) lead to or the black lead as well.

When I look at the plug there is a short metal tab that appears to be connected to the inner metal part of the plug and a longer metal tab that is connected to the outer metal barrel.

Which lead goes where or does it matter?

A bad day at the beach is better than a good day at work.


The red (positive lead) from the battery normally goes to the center of the plug (center positive) - some devices are different but most things are center positive (including the arduino).


Thanks for the help and clear explanation. It's time to solder.
