I bought one that had to be grounded to the grill/gun it was a royal pain. Sparks grounded where it wanted.
Then got two wire + - much easier :D
The one Xeuqa found looks real good --worth the price
They don't eat batts like stuns

I have one that came off of my grill. Works great, you wont be able to take apart as said above it being covered in epoxy. There is a hardware store by me that sells them for $20-25 depending on the brand.

You could do what I did and take a section of 2.5'' pipe and put it in side that and mount the wires on the outside so this way all you have to do is plug it in to you different cannons. I will see if I can get some pics for you.
