    Hi guys,
    I am new Phantom 2 pilot and would like to know if I can somehow find or build an alternative car charger to charge the battery in my car.

    Can anyone please put a snapshot of the car charger's power specifications?

    Thanks,
    Noam

    Buy a quality inverter, such as from Bestek.

    Phantom 2 or 3? The batteries and charging voltages are different. I decided not to go with the car charger. Just to stick with an inverter.
    If I did get a car charger I would only buy a DJI. The batteries are to expensive and to important to take any risks.

    I'm no expert (and don't have drone to hand) but if you look at the back of the charger it will say input voltage and amperage.
    Buy an inverter which output is bigger than that ( prob 30-50 %) and away you go.
    Be aware if you sat there all day flying and charging you might need to do some more sums to check you won't end up with a flat battery. ( depends of course on the size of your cars battery.)
