Party que modification

Well I did my first over nighter last week and the party que battery die. Lucky me it was shorty before I checked on it and did not really affect the cook. Well tonight I added a input for a 6 volt plug in on my party que. sure someone will tell me how I could do it better but now I can us batteries or plug. Here's a few pics. Let me know what u guys think

    Thanks for the pics. I tried to do that mod to mine, but I see why mine didn't work - I didn't make the right connections. Doh!

    Nice mod.
    The partyQ has never made any sense to me.  Where would you ever cook where there isn't electricity?

    Is there Interweb sarcasm on this. My top 5 places to take my small, reason I boight it are very far away from plug ins.

     I second MCN's comment. Not everyone cooks on the patio,right outside the kitchen. I have cookers spread around my property - not every cooker had a power outlet  handy until 2 months ago.  

    I like that the partyQ runs on batteries, but it is frustrating to run out of juice on an overnight cook while you're catching some z's. The AC adapter mod takes care of that problem.

    Also I have started to do some cookoffs and not all of them supply power and I dont have a generator. So the party q is perfect but you would think that they would have added a way to plug it in too. I would not be surprised if they add this feature in the future.
