    Since it doesn't have the higher amp. I'm charging both now and the battery send to be pretty chill. I don't think the p3a charger is as overloaded as p3p right?

    Not sure wat you mean by overloaded.

    The P3P supply is 100W, the P3A is 57W so the P3P will charge faster.

    You're not supposed to charge both because it might overheat. I'm asking if the p3a charger is safer because it's a slower less intense charge than the p3p

    I understand now.
    Correct, DJI does not recommend charing both together as this will stress the supply at the early stages.

    I don't think there is a greater safety risk from one to another.

    It would likely be less safe (for the charger) because it puts out less current so it would overheat sooner with the same current being drawn from the charger..
