Does anyone know what the device is on the Spark home page? Looks like a charging cradle using the 4 connectors on the bottom of the battery. Anyone knows any details on this device? I have not seen it mentioned before.

Nice, charging 2 batteries and the one on your Spark.
Now it also should charge your remote as well ;)

Maybe the dock has a USB out port to charge the remote. But still, if only for charging, I doubt people will buy it while the hub already charge 3 batteries at the same time.

True. I was a bit sarcastic sorry.
The only advantage I can see now would be not having to take your battery out of the Spark.

The advantage of this one is that it is mobile. It has a build in battery itself - independent of a power source. So, you can charge 2 batteries and the Spark with a battery while on-the-go.

I read it in another forum. But, maybe this charging base was just a prototype before they made the charging hub a lot smaller and more portable.
It was presented in this video as being part of the Fly More Combo before the release:

I had read somewhere, can't remember where, that the charging hub would also add additional return to home features for landing right on the charging hub.

On Amazon and Ali are chargers 5 in 1 (4 x pin connector for batteries + usb for remote) for 30-40$.

200$ would be shot in feet and most user would stay with unofficial equipment 4 x cheaper on on the go nice powerbanks  ;) Maybe this is spark self repair kit also

That is definitely the Spark mobile charging station - it will charge three batteries and looks like it has a discharge function built into it. I imagine it will probably have a power bank too for charging in the field/between locations and possibly a USB connection your mobile &/or RC - this was launched with the Spark back in May '17 but is yet to be seen on the market.

I was about to buy some other third party "on the go" charger, but this one seams to be a must have! i can't wait!!!!
Frustrated i'm going to buy more batteries, waiting this dock for more fly time...
In the future i was thinking the best deal should be a Fly Much More Combo with this dock & 3 batteries (not only 2) & without the charging hub in the combo.
