    My dad is giving me his phantom 1, and he has the original 2200mah battery as well as about 5 - 2800mah batteries.

    I will eventually do the 1.5 upgrade, and someday step up to a bigger platform and would like a charger that will last me.

    I do have the stock DJI charger, but I'm sure there are better options out there.

    Kinda wish I kept my stuff from my RC heli days now lol. :(

    Suggestions?

    I have the Phantom 1 also and stock charger. I think it works fine. A more versatile charge is great to charge different battery types but if all you have is the Phantom batteries, why bother.

    I'd like the ability to charge a couple of batteries at a time. I'd imagine it's going to take a while to charge all 5 of them one by one.

    this looks nice?? not the cheapest by any means and only goes upto 6 cell packs. plenty for a phantom or tali 500. it may work out cheaper or more sensible though to by 2 or 3 single output chargers for the same money so that if a charger dies you can still charge stuff. if a single 4 output charger dies you are stuffed totally out in the field.
