If you are on fb then the dewalt talk group is the place to ask. I'm sure I've heard bad stories about these adaptors and either not working with all batteries or going on fire.

ok thanks not on facebook :huray:
i have gone for a genuine "looking" adapter from a uk source although suspect an american import because off the dark orange writing on the top :dunno:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/232341845588
was it generic or genuine giving problems :dunno:

I wrote to DW ages ago and was told they wouldn't supply to the UK due to our safety laws. I think I posted about it on here.

I'm sure Chez posted a YT video about this last year.

I'll tell you this tho BA. I run the generic dewalt batteries they are every bit as good as the genuine batteries. I got 2 18v 4ah for 50 quid from an eBay seller,half the price of dewalt ones.

I'll second that. I bought a couple from ebay and use them every day along my genuine ones and have noticed no difference in quality.

funny enough my genuine dewalt adapter arrive from america yesterday cost me £57 including taxes makes the other one look like a cheaply made knock off :lol:
bought 2 florion 3ah batts about 3 or 4 years ago for about £60 one never worked and the other has failed whilst the origional batteries[10-15 years old] still working all be it at between 30-50% off power

B-A, there is a known issue with these adaptors - they won't work with a few high current draw tools such as the 1st generation 2nd fix nailers. TBH deWalt to their credit has made this abundantly clear on their US web site and 9I believe) in the accompanying notes. Just saying. Good luck with your purchase
