    I starting to see a lot of these sites where they want money but send no goodies ? They all sorta have the same layout too .
    What's up with that ?

    I'm still going to go back the the basic math... 4 batteries = 4 chargers at $40 each is $160. But this is $20 more. Yes, it appears to be 15 minutes faster and if you have several batteries this might be more convenient. Is is certainly better then $300-$400.

    I can't see the use, nor the ROI. I'd rather just buy another battery + charger.
    If you have 4 batteries and 2 chargers, you can pretty much fly continuously. Even if you had just the 4 batts with no means od charging, you have about an hour of flight. When would you need more?
    Not worth it, imo.

    It probably won't be that useful for the average Phantom owner. But, it'll come in handy for businesses once the new FAA rules are approved. A business could easily burn through 10 batteries in a day.
