You should be able to, but it will eventually burn the battery up. but only if it slips into the charger with no force from you.

Yes, of course. The charger puts out the same charge. Only the input voltage is different. I wish they had made it a worldwide charger, but they did not.

My makita battery is not taking a charge is it the base or the battery


The most easiest way to be sure is using multimeter. 25290419-3h5pkc2unruv115jj1tsixdi-2-0.jpg
Set your multimeter to highest dc volt. All chargers have output voltage information written on it (Must be written as "output" value or "sec"). Measure charger's output pins (which connects to battery) and be sure measured value matches with output voltage value written on charger label. If it doesn't match each other, buy a new charger and proceed with below part.

Discharge your battery. Once you discharge battery; be sure that there is no charge at all. Charge battery for 15 min. Measure battery power with multimeter again. If there is no charge at your battery, it is dead and you need another battery.

How can I reset chip on my Makita lithium ion 18v battery


Based on experience I can tell you that it is is generally the temperature/cutoff/individual cell monitoring sensor in charger that dont allow the batteries to take a charge. Once the same condition is detected 3 times by the same charger it considers the batteries to be bad and refuses to accept it. I have 2 batteries that wont charge on one charger but works perfectly fine when i charge it on my other Makita charger so basically there is no problem with my batteries.
I would suggest first you check the voltage of your drained battery by a test multimeter. For 18volt battery if it is close to 18volts 1-2 volts less is just fine! Then there is no issue with your battery. Makita chargers are very expensive hitech which is useless in my opinion the lipo chargers (used in rc hobby) example skyrc are better quality cheaper and does a better job and you can easily charge your makita battery with it as well but this is only recommended if you decide not to go with Makita charger any more. Some basic information about multi chargers for Li-ion battery to follow the safety is make sure you use the right connectors with correct polarity. For 18v volts max voltage should not exceed more than 20.50 and the allowable charge current is 2.7amps also ensuring that batteries dont heatup.

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 !

Hi, i have svoa labtop and now my charger adapter got burnt due to electrict short. Now my charger is not working and i cannot use it.


OK. But I don't understand what the problem is.

AC adapter (Charger) is burnt out, by a new one.

Look at the old 'charger'.
Look at the label.

Input: 100 ~ 240VAC/50 ~60HZ.

100 to 240 Volts AC, at 50 to 60 Hertz. (Cycles per Second)

Output:
This is what you need to know.
What is the output voltage of the original charger?

Example;
Output: 19VDC @ 4.63A

19 Volts DC at 4.63 Amps. (Amperes)

Your charger MUST put out 19 Volts. (For the example)
It WILL be DC electricity, so don't worry about that. (Direct Current)

[Your 'charger' is more than that. More than a charger for the laptop battery.
It is also a Converter. It converts the 100 to 240 Volts of Alternating Current, (AC), into a low DC Voltage.

Plus it charges the Battery, WHEN needed ]

Post back in a Comment as to what the exact query is.

Makita battery charger wont charge


If both lights on the charger are flashing it is indicating you have a bad battery and the charger will not charge the battery. The charger has circuitry that tests the battery and if it 'thinks' the battery is defective it will not attempt to charge it. The only way to verify whether it's the battery or charger is to try charging your battery on another charger or try charging another battery on your charger. Most of the time it's a bad battery.

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 BL1830 Lithium Ion LXT battery that will not charge because the charger tells me the battery is broken. I have taken the battery apart to find no problems with the connection from cell to cell. There is a small circuit board that I cant find any visible signs of damage on. The battery will still run a flashlight or a drill but it is almost drained.

Makita DC18RA Li-Ion 18V Battery Charger


Most likely, but unless the transformer blew, which is somewhat unlikely, a good repair shop should be able to fix it. Basically the charger unit is a transformer, some diodes to convert ac into dc, and some sensing circuitry to tell you when the battery is done charging. Diodes and sensing cisrcuitry are commonly available parts and not expensive. Transformers are expensive. Even if you get it repaired youll still need an adaptor to convert from the mains 240 to the 120 that the charger wants to see. Get one with a high enough wattage for the charger. Wattage is printed on charger base.
