    Has anyone had success charging P3 batteries specifically with a SkyRc D200 charger? I have seen videos posted showing charging P3 batteries with a SkyRc charger, but not a D200.

    I cannot get the charger to go above 0.1 amps in either Pb or LiPo modes.

    Thanks.

    this is my charger.
    24V 50A power supply + step-down converter ( 24v to 17.4V).
    the output from converter is 17.4V 10A.
    in theory, it can charge 2 batts @ 5A each. but unfortunately, it charged 1 batt at once only. i don't know why

    Probably because the SkyRC D200 like most Lipo charges are smart chargers. For P3 batteries the charge detection and balancing is done in the battery. All the DJi charger does is provide power. It's a dumb charger. I'd just use the DJi charger or buy the blue 4 way charger on eBay (charges 3x batteries and the controller) at the same time.
