  1. Hello group,
    I recently purchased a Norelco 8140XL rechargeable rotary shaver.
    Aftter only two weeks I lost the adapter on vacation and can't charge it.
    Would anyone know the voltage/current/polarity so I can hardwire
    something to the base?

    This page shows (under specs, 'bout half way down) the input voltage
    to be 12 volts dc, and the charging time to be one hour.

    Perhaps if the batteries are marked as to capacity, you can do
    the math to determine the charge current.... (don't forget the
    extra 40% for charging efficiency losses)

    Take care.

    I have an 8140XL and 8150XL and the recharger specs are
    the same for both models:

    15VDC 420mA + polarity
  4. Thank you both for your replies!
