Choosing the charger based on the model of the original charger.
The easiest way to choose a cordless screwdriver charger is to check the model, which is usually found on the front or on the type label.
The marking on DeWalt chargers is most often a series of numbers and letters, starting with the letters DE or DW, and can be found on the bottom of the device.
Marking on Makita chargers is most commonly found on the front of the device and takes the form of a series of letters and numbers. There are also identifiers consisting only of digits. Examples - DC18RC, LXT400, 194204-5.
The marking on Bosch chargers is located on the front and most often begins with the letters AL, such as AL2411DV or AL1404, but we can also use the marking from the rating plate, which is in the form of a series of digits and begins with 260 – e.g. 2607335655 or 2607300002.
Marking on Milwaukee chargers has two forms, found on the top label. The first form is a series of digits 48-59-1811, and the second, more commonly used, looks like this - M12-18AC.
The identification on Hitachi and Hikoki chargers can be found on the front of the device or on the type sticker. It has different formats – a series of digits like 70291510061, series of digits and letters – C18YRL, P0005808. Most commonly.
If we have already found the model of our charger, we enter it into the search engine of our shop and we are sure to find the right device.
