question guys.... is this safe?
I use it all the time. Why wouldn't be safe ? It's a parallel charger.
thank you... I'm just thinking something, because of the upgrade firmware of the battery.... but my charger is so hot.
I'm not sure which one you're using -- but, I was researching these on Amazon last night and I saw the one brand is known to run hot (per the reviews).
the phantom lipo dont have any current limiter, the charger has a current limiter set at 4A so that is the maximum current all lipo can receive
basically, connecting 3 lipo in parallel will need 3 times the time for a complete charge
if you want to make it happen faster, you need a lipo charger that can output 12A in PB program for 3 batteries
but be careful the parallel board support that high current
thank you very much
Does this exist?
You can use any power supply with those parallel chargers that outputs 12.6 - 13V or so. But they warn not to use too high current when only charging one or two batteries
(I forget the exact numbers, but something like don't exceed 5A per battery, so max 5A for one battery, 10A for two, 15A for 3).
I just bought a second standard charger, two regular chargers will out perform the triple charger.
the charger I'm using is the original from DJI has 4.0A... thats why its so hot.
of course exist
And they do make such things. They are about $100 on Amazon (15A charger).
Three OEM DJI chargers are about the same price, give or take, with some searching. I currently own two, and am picking up a third.
