    Is there any device which may recharge 3 batteries and more at same time ? I have no problem with doing that but mostly overnight I simply sleep , No Butler to do so instead of me :)

    Perfect and quite cheap. Thanks. Rilot Do you use such adaptor ? IS it safe ? Does the stock Charger will be strong enough to deal with 3 batteries ?

    I saw something like this on amazon and it warned about charging all three batteries and not charging just one or two. It said to you a specific slot if charging one or two only.

    I don't have one but there's no reason why it wouldn't work. I have rigged up my own parallel charging system which is essentially just a bunch of wires.

    Maybe it's overkill, but if you're charging these batteries unattended you might consider using a LiPo bag.

    If you damage your battery you wont get warranty cover from DJI - personally i'd be wary of chargers where you aint got a clue how well they are made !!

    Just my thoughts, each to their own tho.

    It's not a charger, just a parallel board .

    I was thinking, about overloading during recharging all three batteries. Charger is adopted for particular one battery and I'm not sure , can't even read any description on charger ( sold my bird ) From the other hand I am not an electrician. It is nice board, could make our life easier but is it really safe...

    Dji charger isn't a charger, it's a 12 volt power supply. All the charging electronics are built in the battery. I really think a lipo sack is overkill for this. How many thousands and thousands of these have been sold and I haven't heard about any batteries blowing up.
    I don't stick my iPhone or iPad in a sack.

    Apparently you could use any lipo charger + power supply that offers Pb mode. I have an iCharger 206b and a 300 Watt PS for my lipos, but I'm not really sure how I could use it to charge my 3 smart batteries. I think I'm going to do something like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CA1cWjFD1Cw, but I'm a little hesitant as I don't want to ruin those expensive batteries. Would love to hear if anyone has tried this.
