I have a Lummi Raw and the charger below.



I can't use the Nano charger because I'm in Germany.

I've tried to come up with a way of charging the batteries but nothing I tried worked.

Does anybody have a solution?

Please post in the correct place - I'm moving this to the Batteries section.

Are those 10280 or 10180 Li-Ion cells? If so, they will need a proper charger designed for Li-Ion chemistry. What charger is that? The Nano charger should work in Germany - why do you think it won't?

That looks like a LaCrosse BC-700.

Because we have different plugs in each country in Europe.

Never thought of using a travel adapter, or just never been outside Germany?

:laughing: I do have a travel adapter!

But it has a German output socket because I bought it here!

Incidentally, if that is a BC-700, as Stereodude says, you must NOT attempt to charge Li-Ion cells in it. It's for NiCd and NiMH only.

Are the Nano chargers single-voltage or world compatible? In the latter case you don't need a voltage transformer, you just need a $1 plug adapter...

Ok that's right. Now that I looked at the website it's a LiIon.

Thanks for the warning.

Now where do I get a UK travel adapter from?

I assume they are 220 V so I just need the adapter.

It sure looks like mine, so I'd definitely say it's a BC-700. :green:



Do not put Li-Ion batteries in it! :ohgeez:

Why do your want an UK travel adapter, did your get the nano charger with UK plug? I got mine with US plug.

Exactly, it has a UK plug.
