Will DeWalt charger work on 120V 50Hz?

Hello, I own DeWalt DW9118 charger, can it be runned on 50Hz frequency instead of 60hz? Some schematics would also help.

Thanks.

    OK, thanks, I just wanted to be sure. I was only 90% sure:) I guess there is a rectifier right on the input, so frequency doesn't matter that much.

    Thank you.

I don't think that would be a problem, For schematics I would go to Dewaltservicenet.com and type in your model number usually in the center of the site and download a breakdown. Let me know if i can help more.

Why do I get a fast red light on my dw9118 12v charger?


Bad Battery pack, check voltage, try jumping nickel/cadmium battery with car charger, then put on charger.

Charger not charging,charging led not lite. Reading approx 3.2Vac out of terminals. On a good charger the reading is 4.8Vac Dewalt Charger ( Model DW9118) 7.2V-14.4V


You can try warranty services. However, if they are having an event in your area you might just try going down there. I have taken bad batteries to them in the past and they just GAVE me a new one.

Hi. I have a charger for 18v Dewalt Li-Ion (dc9130 120v 60hz) and I'd like to find a circuit diagram so I might be able to convert it to use with 240v 50hz. So I probably need the diagram for the 240v one...


most chargers will fuction on 240/50 hz, look closely at the writing on the charger, it may say. I have laptop chargers and have used the overseas with no problem, that being said, you might try contacting dewalt and asking them if you can do it. Like I said, it probably already will work without doing anything. i have seen some devices (amplifiers mostly) that have a switch on the bakc to switch voltage, ( I don't recall ever seeing a switch to change line frequecny though), hope this helps a bit

I need a schematic for a dewalt dwg 9116 charger


if its anything other than replacing the cord, it is not considered "repairable" and there are no schematics offered.

there was a recall on this model charger, so a dewalt service center might be able to repair or replace it free of charge.

I require a step down plug


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.

Dewalt charger


Ok, for easy way, you can just put a 1~2A diode in series of the input 240v power wire, so the after voltage would be around 120v, but for precaution it is better that you put two diode in series, it will give you same result. In addition, I have already tested it on a similar charger, it works fine.
p.s: I do have a similar one that is also 110v, I compared it with other 240v one. They worked same.
