Question about Philips G380 Beard Trimmer
Hi, my charger for Norelco G380 shaver model is not working. Actually i had bought in USA and now i am using it in India. So may be because of Volatge line Difference in India it has got burnt. But now ai am not bale to find teh charger here in India. Could you please suggest me any other alternative charger that can be used to charge the same.
The battery is probably one with multiple cells and one (or more) of them has shorted preventing the total from reaching a voltage that appears as fully charged.
If the cells are Ni-Cads, this is a common problem with them and when a battery-operated item of mine fails, I replace those older types with NiMH cells if the battery compartment can accept them.
I have 'restored' countless NiCads over the years by 'zapping' them with a fairly high current for a second or two; voltage isn't important as long as it is in excess of 2-3 volts but the source should have a few amps capacity.
This type of cell grows 'whiskers' that will cause them to short completely or develop a path that causes them to self-discharge faster than normal.

From the Service Manual: "The HQ4821 shaver can be recharged in 8 hours by means of a ’Fly Back Self Oscillating Power supply’. This electronic circuit enables the battery to be charged at 100-240V, 50/60Hz."
In other words, it's got worldwide voltage. Hotel rooms should have a power point you can plug it into. Otherwise you'll just need a simple travel adaptor.

SOURCE: Norelco shaver doesn't recharge.
If the shaver won't hold a charge it usually means that the batteries need replacement. This requires disassembly and soldering skills. It's not hard to do but if you're not handy with a soldering iron a shaver repair shop can do the work for you. However, if you have to pay to have it done and if the blades are more than two years old and need replacement, you might be better off just buying a new shaver.
