Hi All, need help please:
I have a cordless 909 drill and the AC adapter on the removable battery charger unit has died. I'm having a hard time finding a replacement universal adapter due to the higher voltage (18V) and unusual tip size.
Specs of the broken charger:
OUTPUT: 18.0V, 0.4A DC
An option I can find at that voltage are universal "laptop" chargers on eBay
e.g. this, which has a much higher current out at 18V: 4.5A eBAy link
Is there something different/special about AC adapters labelled "laptop chargers" which would make this unsuitable to replace the broken "wall-wart" adapter?
Jaycar has a universal adapter for $35 (more than drill cost new!) so that is my last option but would prefer not to have to go down that route.
Thanks, any help appreciated
