I would buy a new charger. Should be fairly cheap on Ebay.

I think the red wires will both be + the black both - and the brown is a sensor for the battery. If that is correct the reds go to the inner surface of the jack socket, the blacks to the outer surface and the brown to a small central 'pin' inside the jack socket.

So you could use a multimeter to see which terminals on the jack socket go the right part of it's inside then you would know where to solder the wires.

Unless you already have soldering equipment I would buy the whole thing like the one in my Ebay link.
