    Hey there,

    Do you know if theres any multi-battery rapid chargers that would fit the Phantom 4 batteries? I'm guessing the port is different to that on the Phantom 3 battery?

    Being able to quickly charge 3 batteries would be ideal!

    Many thanks!
    Paul

    Bump ;)

    Perhaps theres a way I could build my own DIY multi-charger? What do you think?

    in time when the dji p4 connector is available or some company makes one then its a waiting game.
    but you can always cut the lead from your p4 charger and re-wire to a multi charger system... but id wait until the p4 charger is available as a part and just buy a couple more :)

    Yeah because of the new connector, I think it might be awhile before we see them, but check with one of those industrious Chinese resellers on eBay, they may already have one in the works, I know the one who makes the DJI hardshell case copy for the P3 said they'll have one for the P4 on April 10th

    Not yet, I think the new connector is going to make it harder to copy

    I don't think the connector is an issue. DJI sells this 10 pin to DC power: cable and since the specs of the P3 battery are very similar than the P4. I am surprised they don't sell P4 battery multi charger already. I just but one cable to test p4 Batt on my p3 charger, to see how it performs.
    Also look at this products on Ebay: Car Plug P4 Charger and Multi P4 Charger

    ...did just notice something today - the cable from the "eBay china special" to charge the controller did not make a connection - I don't really care as the stock one is enough for me - may open it up and see if it's an easy dumb wire fix or if it's "send-it-back" electronicky stuff - will update...

    I am not familiar with the characteristics of the LiPo batteries. Do the cheap parallel battery chargers reduce the life expectancy of the batteries?
