That was such useful information, thanks ! So what gauge wire should be used? Your posi lock is blue and says 12-18g.Here is the thread with a big discussion on it:
All you really need is something similar to this (check dimensions first):

These can be found online or at local hardware stores. That link above goes directly to some that have been used. If you get one with cables already attached that's a huge time saver for someone not electronically inclined (like myself). Grab one of these:

Match black to black, red to red. You can seal with electrical tape, or butt connector, but I liked using these guys:

They twist to lock so you know it's a tight seal.
I put industrial velcro on my 9volt to keep it in place and then just attach the clip when I want to put it on. I previously used a 9v battery box with an on/off switch, but this saves a lot more space.
How long would these last?Just a heads up you can also easily use a battery installation that uses a cr2032 battery that's the size of a quarter and costs the same as a 9v per battery.
Actually it lasts longer. The reason is due to the 2032 being a lower voltage. To be honest though, I just have it to have it....I don't walk around with that light on.How long would these last?
Also I found this holder for the cr2032 that has a on/off switch also. It's tiny and should fit in there easily. Also, eliminates Deathproofs issue of having to put a battery in every time you wanna use it.

Things might be different for you where you are versus where I am. 2032 are extremely common near me, I can even get them from kmart.Those holders work and are less of a footprint. I just can find 9volts are a lot more common and at costco they're a pretty good value. I keep the battery in the gauntlet. I just attach the clip when I need it.
I don't know what gauge of wire - it's pretty standard though. The posi-locks come in many shapes and sizes.
