Are you talking about using a transformer or a car bat? A car battery should work with less rpm but a transformer would have to be a larger amperage. If you plan on using a transformer look for an 18V transformer.

Godfrey, What do you have in mind, 12 volt car battery? DC from an AC power source? If you want you can run an 18 volt drill from a 12 volt source but at reduced speed and power.
