Sorry to hear your appliance is having issues, please stand by while I find the answer for you, this is not an immediate service however I will try and respond as soon as possible.
What is the model number of your drill?

Expert:  James replied 12 days ago.

You can order a new charger here once you locate the model number.

I would try and use some tweezers or a magnet to try and remove the broken plug from the socket.
