    Just took delivery of my phantom 3 battery charging hub. Stocks came to my shores today and I quickly snapped a unit up from my local dealer(she was the one who contacted me).

    Unfortunately i'm so swamped with work that all i've been doing is collecting accessories and not doing any flying. Hopefully i'll be able to find some free time for flight soon...

    Oh you betcha! Kinda excited to know that I can just plug in 4 batteries and just leave it. Saves me from constantly checking and swapping the batteries.

    From the DJI store. Too bad it uses only 100W charger. It needs 300-400W to be a great product. But it's handy to do all simultaneously. I think I'll wait for something with more power, and that may be a while. I have a HiTec 200W unit that charges 4 batteries at 50W each for my Q500+ craft, I like that 4 in 1 charger a lot.

    I'm assuming that it must take just as long as charging 4 batteries separately right? What's your experience in how long it takes?

    Thx

    Yes you are right. The battery hub charges the batteries sequentially. The good thing is that you can leave it with 4 batteries charging and come back around 3-4 hrs later to 4 full charged batteries. (In reality roughly 40 mins per battery with 100W charger).

    The purpose of buying this is purely for convenience.
