Question about Ryobi Drills
Australia has a 230v supply, and the US 110v. The power supply for your charger will indicate what input voltage it can handle. PCs, for example, typically have power supplies that can use anything between 100v and 240v, which means you can take your laptop from country to country without worrying. My Ryobi charger on the other hand says 240v input, so it doesn't have this flexibility - usually it wouldn't need to. If yours says 110v then you'll need a converter for it to function properly in Australia.

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.

Yes you can that is an automatic charger when it is fully charged it shuts down the charging portion but keeps the charged light lit however this does not effect the battery.
