    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?

    The battery charger for me is bestek 400w power inverter. I like to use this tool to charge camera battery when camping in the countryside. The another reason that I like this tool is that it is convenient for me to take away. You can connect it with your car cigarette lighter charger to use this tool. If you need to learn more details about this inverter, you can search bestekmall on Google.
