I'm disappointed that Dewalt does not have the full specs on their website so . . .
Check the specifications on the charger's label; they should read something like 120 VAC or Volts AC and 2.0 (or similar) amperes or just 'A' after a numerical value.
If the label does not give you an amperage value you can use the output value instead and substitute the output voltage at the high end if a range is listed.
To get the adaptor (step-down transformer) wattage, multiply the AC values such as:
120 X 2=240 watts input power.
If these AC values are not available;
Take the high end charge voltage if it is a multirange charger, and multiply those values;
One we own DW9108 (- yours is 7.2 - 18) is spec'd at 9.6 to 18 volts and 2.8 amperes:
2.8 X 18=50.4 watts.
You can see that the values do not correspond but it is a multirange device so the maximum current taken from the AC line can be ~ 2.0 amperes but this is charging a specific pack and the peak input current is only momentary so the maximum output current and voltage are the values one should use as a guide. In other words, the output wattage is closer to the value needed.
Since there are losses in any transformation (mostly heat), the required stepdown transformer must be capable of more than the indicated 50 watts.
A safe factor would be 1.5 X 50 (W) or ~ 75 watts minimum to ensure the charger receives the 120 volts it wants.      
Anything that will step down your (?) 220 volts and is rated at 75 watts or more will do the job even if the Dewalt draws a little more current at your line frequency of 50Hz which it may.

18 volt charger (Dewalt)


The DW9116 is actually a 120 volt charger so it should cope with 130v AC supply, what is the supply from?

It is normal for a standard 110v supply to run at around 117V

See THIS INFO on power supplies

Dear All, I need recommendation to change some elements in DW9116 to run by 220-230 V AC. I appreciate for support. Alik


Here is a link to a number of 220v chargers that will work for you. You can, of course, use the 110v charger with a down converter.

Usally that information is usually printed on the charger itself. The writing is small on the piece that plugs in the wall. Have you looked there?

Hi there!
I am afraid you can't do that by the changing plug. However, you can do that by using a Step-down Transformer which will bring 220V to 110v that is what your machine is designed to run on. Check the wattage of your drill before getting a Xformer. Usually the stepdown x-former should have a proper socket at the output side. Good luck.

Most likely, but unless the transformer blew, which is somewhat unlikely, a good repair shop should be able to fix it. Basically the charger unit is a transformer, some diodes to convert ac into dc, and some sensing circuitry to tell you when the battery is done charging. Diodes and sensing cisrcuitry are commonly available parts and not expensive. Transformers are expensive. Even if you get it repaired youll still need an adaptor to convert from the mains 240 to the 120 that the charger wants to see. Get one with a high enough wattage for the charger. Wattage is printed on charger base.
