Unfortunately, probably not. The motor would only be designed to handle 110v, and it would burn up with 240v applied. You can take it apart and inspect it, hoping maybe for a bad switch, but chances are the motor is, as you say, blown. Sorry to have to relay the bad news.

How do i convert a makita charger model DC18RC at 110 volt to 240 volts?


The DC18RC are most likely to charged the BL1830 battery, which is the most popular of 18V Makita power tools. It is a Li-ion battery.

And the DC18RC battery charger has two volt 110 Volt and 240 Volt.

The 240 Volt DC18RC charger can replace model DC18RA & DC18SD because of its improved performance and full compatibility with Makita's NEW 'Star' labelled batteries that communicate between the tool, battery & charger. And, it is a fast charger.

It can charge a Makita BL1830 Battery in approx 22 minutes.

But, I do not recommend to convert a makita charger model DC18RC at 110 volt to 240 volts.

The reason is as below:

1. This will void product warranty ! If you follow this mod, you do it on your own risk !

2. There are several comments that described
same model # but with different design and components.
Please beware that this mod might not work on your charger
or worst, will damage it.
Only perform this mod if you know your way around with electronics !

I accidentally plugged computer avr 220v to 110 could it affect my power supply


If the computer power supply is a 240 volt unit and you plugged into 110 volt mains the the computer should be OK.
Some power supplies have a voltage selection switch on the back of the power supply switch to 110 volts and it should work.
If the power supply is 110 volts and you plug it into a 240 volts mains then you will damage the power supply and possibly the computer as well.

What is the standard plug for stoves newhome el916. Is it the general 13A plug


I can't find an online manual for the model of the appliance you are talking about, so I'm unable to figure out the wattage it draws. Nor do I know where you are in the world and the voltage you are running at, so I can't tell you straight off. But I can tell you how to figure it out very easily:

I imagine that know what your main power supply voltage is (either 240 volt or 110 volt).
You can look at the appliance and there will be a data sticker with the wattage rating on it somewhere (or it will be in the install/Owner manual).


Now you have these 2 bits of information we can do a simple sum:

Watts divided by Volts = Amps

Therefore example calculations look like this:


If you have a 500 watt appliance on a 240 volt system 500/240 = 2.083 so use a 3 amp fuse
An appliance with a 750 watt motor on 240 volts: 750/240 = 3.12 so use a 5 amp fuse

A 2KW (2000 watt) appliance like a hot air blower on a 240 volt system: 2000/240 = 8.33 amps so use a 10 amp (or more commonly 13 amp) fuse
A 500 watt motor on a 110 volt supply 500/110 = 4.5 so use a 5 amp fuse

A 1KW (1000 Watt) appliance at 110 volts: 1000/110 = 9.09 amps so use a 10 amp (or more commonly 13 amp) fuse

etc etc etc.....


If the sum comes out below 13 amps, you can use a 13 amp plug. If it doesn't you need to hardwire it into a proper cooker supply.

How many amps a fuse in breville mixer


Not knowing the model of the mixer you are talking about, or where you are in the world and the voltage you are running at, I can't tell you. But I can tell you how to figure it out. Simply do this:

You obviously know what your main power supply voltage is, either 240 volt or 110 volt
You can look at the mixer and there will be a data sticker with the wattage of the motor on it

Watts divided by volts = Amps

Therefore, if you have a 500 watt mixer on a 240 volt system 500/240 = 2.083 so use a 3 amp fuse
a 750 watt motor on 240 volts 750/240 = 3.12 so use a 5 amp fuse
a 500 watt motor on a 110 volt supply 500/110 = 4.5 so use a 5 amp fuse

etc etc etc.....

Hope this helps

Is a dtxplorer bought in the USA set for 110 volts and therefore do you need to get a converter to use it in a 220/240 volt country?


Yes, the adapter takes 120 volts... Best way might be to get a 220 to 110 trnasformer converter then you can run other stuff as well... Get one of the step down transformers in first column... the 100 watt one would be more than adequate, but for future things you might want higher rating.

I bought an AOC 2036s monitor in the usa, came back to australia to connect it to my laptop as a second screen. yet it wont seem to work, i keep getting no signal. the box saids compatible with XP, yet...


USA mains equipment operate on 110 volts. Unless the AOC monitor can operate on multi voltages ie 110 to 240 volts, when you connect 110 voltage equipment into 240 volts mains in Australia you most likely will damage the AOC monitor.
To operate equipment that has been designed for 110 volts, you need to purchase a step down transformer from 240 to 110 volts that has suitable wattage rating for the AOC monitor.

Will it be okay to connect a 110 volt laptop to a 220 volt LCD projector?


What voltage is your mains supply?
The laptop's adapter should be a multi-voltage type 110 to 240 volts input.
If your mains is 110 volts AC then the 220 volt AC LCD projector won't work unless you connect it to a step up transformer (110 to 220 volt transformer).
If your mains supply is 220 or 240 volts then both the laptop and the LCD projector will work without any problems.
