Question about Drills
The input transformer is open and needs to be replaced.
Posted by Anonymous on
If you have the skill to determine the transformer input is open, I would expect you have the skill to replace a transformer. Based on this assumption: determine the input voltage (120 vac?), determine the output voltage (14 vac?), determine the power requirements (output voltage times the charging current), find a transformer at www.digikey.com or www.mouser.com or www.newark.com.

Unfortunately, Panasonic uses a unique profile on their battery packs that allows them to fit into Panasonic chargers. So trying to find another brand charger won't be possible. At one time, DeWalt made a really nice Universal charger that would charge literally any rechargeable battery made, but it cost a small fortune and they stopped selling them after only a year.
I would suggest that you call the customer service number and see if they can provide you with a local service center that can repair your charger for you.
You can also check the Panasonic site to see if they'll help with a repair or possible replacement under warranty or customer satisfaction, etc.
Sorry to be the bearer of not so good news, but hope you find this Helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: charger died.
It is usually a current limiting resistor anyway... so I would think that about 100 Ohms should be all good, you generally need about 250 - 300mA to charge ya batteries. It is simple Ohms law calculation.
