Does anyone know the wiring for a gp extreme battery? I am converting a pair of lucky lark batteries set up for the gpx series to opperate a gp extreme and i am wordering what the pin allocations are on the microphone socket they use as a power connector. (4 pin) Anyone have any ideas? Paul.

G'day Axeman.

After installing your new 4 pin male power socket in place where your 5 pin was,(on the front panel of your Lucky Lark),the notch in your four pin plug should be directly on top and dead center,separating the two pins either side of notch,when looking directly at the front panel of your Lucky Lark. Sequence of soldering wiring (whilst facing the four pin socket on front panel of your Lucky Lark) is; Starting from the top left pin in a clock wise direction, brown,blue,white,and green/yellow wire.
Hope you've understood all this. PS.Make sure you back down the voltage to 6.5v via the brass grub screw,located in your Lucky Lark and checking your output voltage,via your power lead socket,prior to plugging the power lead socket into your Extreme.

Cheers kon61.
