    Hi Folks - question about the DJI Phantom battery charger...
    Every 15 seconds or so it looks like the charger reboots or loses power. This is new behavior, had it for about a month and always worked fine. This happens on any battery that I try now EXCEPT when a battery is fully charged. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Weird, I've not seen that behavior before.

    very strange.

    Well, if it's deemed toast,. I just got this one in,.and it's super cool! it can charge faster and discharge if I plan to store the batteries at 50% connects right up to the Phantom batteries without any problems. *from the USA wherehouse

    had to buy a power supply for it, but that was only another $10, and shipping from the USA wherehouse was another $8.23, arrived in less than a week.. (total of $42).
    don't bother trying to get a replacement charger if it's going to cost you money.
