Question about Makita 18V LXT Lithium - Ion Cordless Impact Driver Kit Model BTD140
I want to replace the stock transformer in the 110V DC18RA, in order for i to work with 220V. Can you help me find where in europe I can get the transformer needed in order to do this?
Hi there the solution for how to mod a DC18RA charger can be found here. The "how to" comes with pictures and descriptions and it should be easy to follow, and best of all it works :)

I tried changing the capacitors, but the MOSFET blew instead. Turns out that the MOSFETs in the 110V model has about half the voltage rating of the one in the 220V model.
The MOSFET is expensive, so you're better off buying a 220/110V transformer or a 220V charger.

Don't replace the transformer in ur charger.just get a step up transformer like 110v to 220volts with plug in receptacle.

I tried this solution. I found out the capacitor has to be bigger. 220uF did not do the job, replaced with 500uF and then it worked :-)
