    Just recently returned from Iceland where we drove the Island for 5 days.
    It's the first time I had used the DJI car charger and it appeared to work fine except it
    would not charge a battery over 86-87%
    Tried starting the battery and re-pluging the charger. It appeared to due further charging, but still
    only showed 86-87%.
    Thought this was a bit odd.

    That's not good to hear. I just bought one of those. I'll have to try it out.

    I have been looking at car charging for a while now and considering the best way to do it. Some ppl like inverters and other dont.
    It would seem the most efficent way is DC/DC step-up.
    Im looking at one of these - DC/DC stepup
