SOURCE: Ihave 110 volt makita dc18rc battery charger,

I had the exact same problem. I ordered the ZNR V10 241U part from Dija Key. They are around 36 cents if you buy 10 of them. I cut the old one out and soldered the new one in. I changed the fuse over to an automotive one so the fuse is easier to obtain. I plugged it in and charger works fine.
What happens is a voltage spike either low or high gets recieved by the charger. The fuse appears to be slow blowing and does not stop the spike in time. The spike is stopped by the varactor surge supresser. In doing so, it saves the circuit board so all you have to replace is the fuse and the surge surprsser.

Makita DC18RC 110v converse to 240v


Buy one of those European adapters. If you want to convert to 240V for US current, don't do it. You'll fry that drill to a crisp.

Why does my charger flash but not charge


Most chargers have a specific sequence of flashes to indicate whether it is chargers or there is a problem. If mine flashes real fast the battery is usually too hot to charge. You did not say what brand or model you have. The best way to determine if its a bad battery or bad charger is to try charging a known good battery. Usually it is the battery but occasionally the charger can be the culprit.

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 have makita bl1830 battery 18volt it works fine but will not charge, charger lights flash red and green therefore battery will not charge


If both red and green lights are flashing after you put the battery on the charger, the charger is reading the battery as bad or defective and it will not charge the battery. It may be because there is a short in the battery, one of the cells is bad or the battery is just old and won't charge anymore.
