    So I've looked closely at the specs....If I set aside 4K video and am very happy with 1080, it seems I go for the P3 Advanced.....It comes with a different, lower wattage charger it seems. Are both P3 Adv and P3 Pro using same batteries or not?
    If so, can I get the higher wattage charger later as an add on or a 3rd party 100W charger??

    The batteries are the same .

    You can purchase and use the 100W battery charger.

    You may also want to look into a 3rd party charger rather then a 100w DJI charger. For a few dollars less you can charge 3 batteries at the same time as well as the controller. These chargers run around $75.

    Personally I would stick with the Advanced charger. The slower the battery charges the battery the better for the battery. The difference will be very small in charging time one way or another.

    Also, the official DJI chargers CAN charge a battery and the flight controller at the same time - but it is recommended that you don't.
