    Hi,

    Can this LiHv Charger:
    Turnigy Neutron 80W DC Touch Screen Charger

    which needs 10-18 volts input,
    be powered with the stock dji phantom 3 charger,
    (if the turnigy chargers charging current is limited manually so its consumes less than 60 watts)
    ?

    i want to charge a 5200mah lihv pack with it because if dont have much space in the carry case left
    and why carry around two power bricks when only one is needed?
    assuming the dji charger is just a constant voltage power brick and the charging electronics
    is only in the dji smart battery, which im not sure about and couldnt find consistent information..

    thanks

    yes it can! i testet it. limit the charging current so no more than 57 watts are drawn from the dji charger at any time, also not at the end of the constant current cycle when the voltage reaches its maximum!
    dont forget to calculate or measure the watts that the turnigy charger consumes itself while providing the charging current.

    I use a 75 watt step-up, it also keeps the current to the battery.
