Anyone heard anythign about the Charging Stations and when we can expect them for the Inpsire 2 TB50 battery?
I had tried to order one but the DJI store keeps saying out of stock comming soon (and yes I know thats kinda funny to expect anything else other than "comming soon" from DJI store)....

I have checked a few other places and they are also saying no one has recieved any.  Is this even a real product?

I figured these were already shipped out sometime ago.  I do not need one, but they certainly look very nice.

I wish!  I tried to order it on the day it was announced and right after clicking "buy now" it says coming soon and only gave me a opportunity to wait on a notification list.

Been checking back every week now and nothing new and no change to status.  Maybe my luck with change in the morning...

What I was really after was just seeing if anyone is getting them and I'm just not lucky enough yet.  I don't even seen any reviews on YouTube for it so I was growing concerned they will dump this product...

Now that you mention it, nothing has posted about this charging station. Out of sight out of mind  

It really looks like a very nice concept for the pro user on a jobsite. I guess they ran into some supply issues and it has been delayed. Cant imagine they would drop it.

I suspect that too or they are shipping direct to the big guys and waiting to fill al their orders before my order for 'just one'.

I don't actually need one, but when I need to go its really nice to be able to charge quick all the batteries, do the firmware and all that they said it does...  right now I have multiple charging hubs and it takes almost as long to set them up as it does to charge a set!

Dear Mindy....Please, please, please

I wish DJI would go to a standard charging system which had a universal controller and multiple adapters for the entire product line. Just like the Mavic and Phantom have their own independent  connector, so could every other DJI battery.  Other companies build a single controller that can charge all types and sizes with user options for storage, cycle, charge rate, etc. of batteries including all different chemistry including Lipo, Lithium Ion, Nickel Metal Hydride, etc.  With connections to a computer you can store charge results and graph a lot of parameters.  The good ones, like REVO (FMA Direct  FMA Web), even offer "Bump" charging where you bar code each battery and "bump" the bar code up against a built-in reader and all of the battery charging parameters are automatically set.  If DJI wanted to limit the options like the charge rate, fine.  But it would make travel with multiple birds so much easier...one small unit and a couple different types of adapters.  The types of "hubs" and "stations" that DJI is building go obsolete when the DJI Inspire 3, 4... or Mavic 2, 3.... or Phantom 5, 6.....come out with different size batteries.

It may be hard to achieve at the moment but nice proposal, we are always working on improving our products to make customer have a better experience, so your feedback is very important to us, I will forward it to our engineers for consideration, thank you again.

There are already rumors of Inspire 3 end of year. Please DJI let our TB50 batteries, X5S / X7 cameras, and CinneSD cards be forward compatible.

I think its more likely to see that inspire 3 now than it is to see this battery charging station...

Yes, it's likely that this is the case ...
In addition, hopefully the charging station will not disappear as the Tracktenna did.

This is a little crazy, waiting this long for this - and its not even a good deal for the charging station....  its expensive, and not available.  Hopefully the price drops also while we wait.

Just wanted to close this thread off...  It looks like you can order the Charging Station now, and they are shipping to end users.  I purchased mine.

Also, if you signed up to be alerted for when this was available, you likely didn't get an alert that it was available.  I didn't, but someone mentioned its availability in the TB50 battery error thread so that's how I knew...  still no alert from DJI so I suspect that system isn't going to alert you.

I did get an alert, ordered one, checked stock 2 minutes later it was sold out. It's awesome!

They must have had a very limited run of them on the first batch...  or sold way more then they panned to!  either way, I think the pro's out there are going to really going to love this.  I hope some early reviews come in soon from those lucky enough to have gotten an order in early.
