Wiring the by-pass
In one of the reviews someone states that the 3rd terminal is used as a battery by-pass. How would something like that be wired? Thank you.
Let us call the center pin terminal 1, this will (typically) be the positive (+) connection. The other two terminals (for the sake of argument) will be common (-), and switched. Simply use a multimeter to test for continuity on the various terminals. The "third" terminal will have continuity to the (-) terminal when the DC plug is disengaged. One would use this terminal to switch the common for the batteries on and off.
