I moved this post to the tools forum from the appliance forum in hopes that it will get a little more attention in the tools dept!

U.K. uses 240V as standard with some 110V available, but they run at 50 cycles instead of the 60 we use in the U.S. I doubt the electronics in the charger are going to like that.
