    Has anyone measured the DC voltage output from the 100w DJI charger?

    If so, what voltage did you see?

    Thanks!

    17.4V is what is spec-ed.

    Do you suspect a problem?

    Mine outputs 17.27v. I was wondering what other people were seeing from theirs.

    Sounds good.

    Not unusual for a bit of measurement error among different meters.

    is 0.04v worth worrying about ????? I don't think so;) it still gets me to 100% charge

    No of course not. Take 10 units and you'll get a deviation across them. Don't worry about it..

    The voltage will drop probably with load (charging).

    I have a Universal power supply which I can set the voltage and current.
    The voltage does dip a little when max charge current is being drawn.
