In principal, yes. More or less. Make sure, though, that

a) - is on the connector shield, + is on the inside
b) The adapter has at least 5 watts
c) The adapter will never ever, even for a fraction of a second, put
   out a voltage higher than 7.5 volts. Many unregulated power supplies
   can't guarantee that.
