Hello,
I have recently moved to Vietnam. I brought my Ryobi 18 volt corless tolls with me. The charger works on 110v. I have been using a power converter to lower the Vietnam 220v single stage to 110v. Except for a blown fuss in the charger it has been working fine. Untill one afternoon in the thrill of finding a fuss that worked and the normal tiredness from a long day at work, I plugged my charger into a 220v outlet. The green light came on, I walked away. Then moments later I could smell the burnt plastic. booops. My question is this. Is it possible to convert my 18v charger from 110 to 220 single phase? If so how?
Best regards, Lee

Your best bet is to get a new charger designed for 220 Volts.
I'm not sure what your chances are to get a Ryobi charger in Vietnam.
You may have to get one posted to you from overseas.

If the electronics are not fried you can get a 220 / 20 or 24 volts transformator and fit it in the charger casing.

Good luck.
