    Can be done, but it takes a lot longer...it will only charge one unit at time anyway, so you may as well charge them separately. And yes, DJI instruct not to do it.

    I'm pretty sure it's because the dji charger is fanless so would overheat fully charging a flat flight pack and flat tx.

    Dji have to allow for high temperatures/hot countries so play it safe.

    If your just topping off both lipos a lot of people say it's fine but it's very cheap to buy another dji charger or a blue charger with fan which can charge several flight packs and tx at once.

    Charger may overheat or burn out, even catch fire.

    MAY Overheat ect.
    Me think its just to cover Dji if your house burns down. Ive done it just to top up batterys and r/c. but always keeps a eye on it.
