    Is there a Y-connector for a stock DJI charger to charge 2 P2 smart batteries at once?

    Bit of a newbie here...

    Using the charger that came with the phantom 2 and the above listed product, are you able to charge 3 simultaneously? ie is the original charger capable of putting out enough Amps, or would i need a more powerful power adapter made by a third party company to supply 14 amps or so for 3 batteries at once.

    I haven't done any tests and I only have 2 batteries anyway. I just plug 'em in and in the morning they are charged. No fires or toasted charger yet. Using a fire-proof bag for lipos just in case though!
