    Need to clairify with you experts before starting.
    So I got my Phantom 3 batteries and a spare RC lipo charger:
    Ultra Power UP120AC DUO 120W LiPo LiIon LiFe NiCd NiMH Lead Acid Battery Balance Charger Discharger
    Charging one at a time through the original DJI charger takes a while to get all 3 done.
    I've been reading through the forum, Youtube and also on RCGroups.
    To charge this battery, I've read I need to put the charger in Pb battery mode as the Phantom battery is smart and already has the balancing feature built in. The DJI charger is essentially just a power supply.
    The settings to use for my RC charger should then be:

    18V @ 5.2A

    Can someone verify if this is correct?

    Now I understand the Phantom 3 batteries will also self discharge over 2 days' time if left un-used for a while but since my RC charger also has a storage mode function, does anyone know which settings I should input for it?

    I've already got 2 charger leads for the DJI battery terminal to the 4mm banana plugs:
