AC Adapter for a Vixen SD-1 Drive?

Hi, can anyone recommend an AC adapter for the SD-1 drive? The battery pack tends to fail in cold weather.

Vixen offers a $149 unit, which I would like to avoid for an obvious reason. They also have a cigarette lighter type adapter, but I am not sure if either unit works well with the SD-1? Thanks.

The cigarette lighter type off a 12volt DC source works well. You might want to be sure there is a fuse of less than 6 amps somewhere in line, easy to insert one from Radio Shack if yours doesn't come with one.
