An AC to DC battery charger is an ideal recharging situation due to the constant supply of power from the AC side providing energy to revitalise a battery. Typical AC battery chargers plug into a wall outlet for power supply. The connectors to a car battery, camera battery, or any other storage cell include a hot wire with a positive charge and a ground wire for the negative. It's common for battery charger wires to be colour coded to avoid confusion.
