What is the coupler called?Is this what you are talking about?

I had gorilla tape to hold the the charge port, but I'm looking for alternatives. Think I might do a tie wrap.
I already cut the hole for the charge port and unfortunately I don't have the steadiest hand with a dremmel and made it crooked and larger than needed. Since I'm a perfectionist, anyone got a solution to making it look like I didn't mess up?
Whenever I plug in the charger, the light on the AC plug doesn't turn red to indicate charging. The switch on the battery is on and if I plug the charger directly to the female plug on the battery, it turns red to indicate charging.
I'm using the jack socket from this pack here - https://www.amazon.com/WGCD-Adapter-Pig ... d_pd_title
Positive to the short tab which stated in the user reviews and black to the longer tab. I've tried soldering the wires to it and also just wrapping wire around the tabs and heat shrinking it and neither work.
Does anyone have a better plug recommendation or know what I'm doing wrong? I know there's a premade one in the shop but I've been taking this as an opportunity to learn some basic wiring and have all the materials so I'd like to try and do it myself
I tried it with a different portable battery from talentcell and it seems to be charging fine so I believe it's a faulty Blue Brick. I'll be ordering a new one instead. Wish I had tried that sooner
I'm a supppper noob at electronics and right now I just have a crude set up for lights on my pack. Luckily there was a sprit proton pack mod someone did on youtube that had clear and easy instructions on how to set up the lights. I followed the steps without fully knowing what everything did and whether it was needed as well.
Anyway after seeing this post I may switch over to the set up here in this thread. Excuse my crude drawing of my setup but can someone critique it and tell me how I can better utilize things especially if I plan to connect a brick type battery pack?
ps. I also plan on connecting my Hasbros Spengler wand to it via a lead connecting from the speaker in the wand to some decent speaker (and amp? if I need it?) in my pack and another lead from the first toggle switch on the wand to activate the lights on my pack. Would I be able to connect the speakers to the same one battery pack? THanks
