VEXnet Joystick Power Adapter

Does anyone have one of these VEXNet Joystick Power Adapters. I was wondering what the pin out of the unit was, and how much voltage each supplier.
I was looking to create my own using the 9.6v batters and this port as not to do the following mod using dead batteries.

This would make connecting it a lot easier with out ANY modifications to the joystick. Creating a great use for all our old 9.6v batteries.

The plate rating says it puts out 5VDC at 1A, which I assume is regulated. The 6P6C connector has the black (-) wire is on pin 3 and the red (+) wire is on pin 5.

Have a look at the wikipedia page to see exactly how to identify the pin numbers.
