    Good find, depending on the car that could be a slow charge.

    To be as fast as the wall charger it only needs to supply 4 amps, usually 12v cigarette circuits in cars run 10-15A. I'd be more concerned that the charger is made to supply 4-6 amp max and not 15A to my batteries. That little inline rectangular piece should be a current limiter.

    That's what I figured as well and bought 2, I don't think you could buy the special connector alone for that price!

    I just ordered two also. This will not hurt my expensive P2 batteries, will it?

    It changed to preorder after about 100 sold, I was able to make paypal payment and paid an extra two bucks for air shipping. Hopefully they will come in soon. I guessing they didn't plan for a run on dji car chargers!

    If this does work it'll be the easiest (and cheapest) way ever to recharge an RC battery.

    I wouldn't trust any cheap c.rap like this, will be super slow too.

    Buy a good inverter (with a built-in cooling fan) instead. I use one for charging motion control gear, cameras, laptops etc. It will cost you far less than a DJI car charger + you can use it to charge other stuff.

    You get what you pay for.
