    Hello there,
    I think that the charger that you are referring to charges 3 batteries 1 at a time...
    it is important that we try not to repost here or duplicate threads but this subject is addressed on Phantom Pilots elsewhere so I going to try to redirect you to that post.. not to repost but to be helpful to you or any fellow DJI Phantom 3 Pilots the post # is 16 if you have ant Questions about this charger feel free to contact me and I must tell you this is not an advertisement for the product but a very well done in dept public video not by or endorsed by the manufacture this is the firt time I am trying this so wish me luck...just-say-in...!!! ;-)

    I think he is talking about the "official" dji charging hub that was just released. I am curious to see what people think, if it works well etc.

    [be sure and read my correction below in post #7 :oops:]
    The charger the OP is referring to is the official as Joao Carlos pointed out.
    The one you referred to does in fact charge all three at once, not one at a time as you stated.
    Also, this thread was in no way a repost or duplicate. Please refrain from 'memberating' the forum. Thanks.

    Hello there,
    Thank you for you input one again you do not have your facts straight so I will help you if I can
    I did follow the link that was posted and in fact that charger does charge only the highest of the four not three of the total in the charger and then moves to the next battery I will add that I was again was trying to be helpful and careful about how I an doing things here at Phantom Pilots so I will treat you as you are and have been treating me for two days now get your facts straight see the link and learn something about this charger by for you chastise this member or any other member in the future PLEASE stop harassing me and focus on your responsability to the members here at Phantom Pilots that charger you were also wrong in you statement I guess that makes us even or just as sodish as one another PLEASE read the overview that I have copy and pasted from the DJI website follow the link and read for yourself I do not want any member to find out because you miss misspoke about this chargers capabilities that it charges all the batteries at one time it does not give you a faster charge time and only will use your charger with this docking station so hum lets reflect on what you said and think about it,,,just-say-in...!!! ;-)

    Over view from DJI website
    Small and easy to carry, the Battery Charging Hub for the DJI Phantom 3 enables you to charge up to four Phantom 3 Intelligent Flight Batteries.
    When used, the Charging Hub automatically selects the individual battery with the highest amount of remaining power, and charges it until full before moving on to the next battery.
    The entire process is monitored and each battery’s status is shown using LED indicators, making the charging process simple and easy.
    • Intelligent charging management, capable of automatically charging up to four batteries.
    • Each battery‘s status is shown using LED indicators.
    • Small and easy to carry.
    • Internal power management ensures safety at all times.
    • Integrated port enables future firmware updates.
    • Compatible with the Phantom 3 series Charger.

    I don't know whether this helps to stem this discussion -- but there is a Phantom 3 charger that does in fact charge all 3 batteries at one time-- I have one and it works perfectly.

    You sir are correct about the charger. I would like to apologize to you as I was wrong. I did make an error as I thought you were referring to this - http://www.phantompilots.com/threads/how-many-batteries-chargers-do-you-have.23155/#post-473939 that you commented on in that thread which in fact does charge all of them at once. I was mistaken, your info on the DJI charger is 100% correct, it charges them one at a time.

    Hello there,
    Thank you for you input I use the one that charges 4 at once plus two controllers and has two usb plugs to charge your phone or tablet at the same time it works very well in the field with a1000w inverter the charger that I use has what is called DEEP CYCLE mode that will automatically do the replenishing of all the cells as recommended by DJI so many options now,,, here is a link the thread to clarify... I was post 16 in the thread hope that helps...!!! ;-)
