Question about Dewalt 7.2-18.0 Volt One Hour Charger

1 Answer

Charging Canadian battery tools in Europe

Hello I am a chippie going to be working in Europe(specifially Ireland) for 12 months and have decided to bring my own power tools with me. My problem is that they have a different voltage system over there I think its 240 volt mains and our mains here run at 110. I'm just wondering can I just buy a standard DeWalt charger over there, which would run off of 240 for my tools batteries and charge them off of that or do i need to get a volt convertor and change the plug on my existing 110 charger and plug it into that? I'm just not sure cos I imagine an 18 volt battery is an 18 volt battery regrardless of whether its charged off of 110 or 240 volt, or am I wrong in assuming that? I don't want to write off my batteries anyone I've asked is unsure and some people have suggested that the 18 volt battery will somehow be damaged by charging it on one of their 240 volt chargers? Any help you could give would be much appreciated and probably save me a lot of money if I can't charge them on a new 240 volt charger. Thanks in advance.

Can i charge a 18v dewalt battery useing a 12 volt and a 6v chargers wire


I would say that this is a bad idea. A tool charger is designed specifically for the battery, and kluging it like that is a good way to fry something.

Is the green light supposed to flash while charging lithium batteries> just got the p113 charger but no instructions in the dang box


I have used alot of battery type drills and other action tools . Ryobi is on the lower end of the market as opposed to Milwaulkee and Dewalt . But my experience with battery operated tool charging equipment is that if the light is green and it's blinking , I would say it's charging . When the light goes off or stays on . I would say it's charged . Leaving the battery or batteries in the charging unit for 24 hours will not hurt the battery . My solution here is put it in the charger , and check it 12 hours later !

Why can't you buy the 230 volt DC18RA charger in europe (amazon.europe country) and use it. I had the same issue yet i burned out the fuse in the 110 volt DC18RA charger because i plugged it into the wall just using an adaptor. Lesson learned. Therefore, my first solution was that i bought a converter from 220V-to 110 Volt. This showed me that my charger was done. So instead of getting another 110 volt charger sent here to Europe from Canada, I returned the converter and have on order a 230 volt input DC18RA charger from amazon.de which has the same 7.2-18V output. I have been told this will work yet the fear, and I don't know why, is that it will burn out the batteries in a year or so. It is difficult getting specific information from Makita, but I hope it all works out. Best of Luck for you

I have a Makita with 2 PA14 batteries and a DC1414F charger. When I turn the charger one the green light flashes once but no other lights show at all when I'm trying to charge my 2 batteries. Neither...


You stated you have a 12V Cordless Drill with PA14 batteries. The PA14 battery is 14.4V. The battery may fit in your tool and might work for a while but the motor isn't made for that battery. The way to check the batteries is to try them in another charger, any 14.4V to 18V pod/stick charger will work. The way to check the charger is to try another battery, any good 7.2v to 14.4V pod/stick battery will work. Unless the charger got wet or extremely hot the problem is usually the battery. Just check to make your tool and battery voltage is compatable.

Between us my son and I have 10 18 volt batteries for our Makita power tools which we use in our Carpentry work of these 10 batteries 6 have failed. I have to say the reliabillity of the Ni-cad equipment...


Join the battery collectors club. I have 25 batteries, 12 guns, I quit buying the batteries, I found it cheaper to buy the gun with new batteries and charger once a year. Cause they don't even last that long. I have tried different brands too all the same. Got batteries?? Sure do.

Problem charging makita batteries 18v li-ion


Unfortunately, Makita’s li-ion battery packs have a design flaw. After having the same problem with my two batteries, I took it apart and saw the problem immediately. You see each battery pack has ten li-ion battery cells and a circuit board with a memory chip witch holds the charging history of the battery pack. But that memory chip constantly draws power from 2 of the 10 batteries. The current it draws is very small but if you consider it over 8 month or more, the power drain becomes very significant. You end up with a battery pack with 8 still fully charged battery cells and 2 drained battery cells. When you put this battery pack in the charger, it detects weak battery cells, assumes they are defective and refuses to charge. To avoid this problem you should charge your battery pack often, even if you haven't used it, every two months should be ok.
I suspect that Makita doesn’t make these battery packs, they make power tools, good ones too. Buy Makita should definitely have a few words with their supplier before they become a liability!
