    lol this is what I love about JC... if you dared ask such a question on, for example, whirlpool forums, you'd be flamed so bad for asking that question that you'd never post again. JC is t3h fri3ndli357!!! :D

    I think the general rule is to always connect the negative/black/earth first, and then connect the positive/red.

    Just so u know, try and avoid flames or sparks near a battery, especialy one being charged. They can go up in a BIG way. Be careful.
