    I would put money on the power converter being the problem, I use my set on the road and bought one of those cheap 12V to 120 V car converters, It worked for my laptop and Tele but battery chargers did not work on MAkita, Dewalt and Ridgid. I ended up spending $400 on a good modified sinewave inverter and problem solved. The problem is that cheap power converters have a square wave output and that buggers up the electronics in the charger. As a bonus I ran my fridge and freezer during during the big 2 day blackout last summer
