    I have been using one routinely for 3 months. It's well made and does the job very well. Using it alongside the standard DJI charger means I can be ready to fly on all 4 batteries in just over an hour.

    The only downside is that the cooling fan is a bit noisy

    i just ordered this today from amazon. it'll be nice to charge a few batteries at the same time instead of one at a time.

    I have ordered a parallel board. I only have 2 batteries. Do you think I will have any problem?

    No only charges one battery at a time.

    This is the one I use from Drone World:
    Thor Supercharger Phantom 3 Powered Triple Battery Charger
    It's been working perfectly for me for the past 2 months. I highly recommend it as you can charge 3 batteries and controller at the same time. In about 45 minutes you are done and ready for your next aerial mission.

    NO! The Phantom 3 is a 4 cell battery, the Inspire is 6 cell - different voltages (and the Phantom 2 is a 3 cell)

    That charger works very well and very good value.

    Is there any interlock on the connector to use the right polarity? Batteries will burst if wrong polarity is used.

    It will charge the first and when it finished will start to charge the second? Or it will end at the first?

    The plug can only go on 1 way.

    Thanks for confirming as that is not evident from pictures.

    Your charger looks different and connectors are definitely polarized. I can't say about the one shown in the original post.

    i think the one shown by op maybe ok as there is a ridge on one side that would stop the plug going in the wrong way

    My connectors are similar to this, but have a tethered cap on each connector to cover the terminals when not in use.

    Difficult to connect with the polarity reversed.
