    I saw a post here about a month ago that had a link to a portable battery charger that could be used for DJI Phantom 2 NV batteries. I tried to find it and was unable too.

    Could someone please post a link or an option to charging batteries in the field?

    Thank you.

    Check the phantom google search in my signature. Bookmark that and use it instead of the forum search. It brings up far more results :)

    I don't know if anyone cares or not but I purchased this today and it worked perfect.

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/400-watt-40 ... &cp=1&lp=1

    It was louder than I thought it would be. Not sure if something may have been wrong or not. I'm taking it back and exchanging it here in a few minutes to see if they are all as loud as the one I purchased earlier today.

    Other than that, it charged two batteries full. No problems. While driving.

    I have not had one of them but the inverter I have makes a screeching noise as it starts then its silent thereafter.

    Usually when it makes a squeal it's a low voltage warning. I use one in my police unit and it usually squeals when I turn off my car and have things plugged into it.

    Just got home with a replacement. It's not nearly as loud. A little louder than a computer fan I guess. Pretty nice. I'm happy.
