Does anyone have any experience with the Venom Group P4 Professional Battery Charger for DJI Phantom 4?

Any info would be appreciated!

It looks nice and gets lots of great reviews on Amazon.com.  I ended up buying the dji one that charges only one battery at a time because I read that using aftermarket chargers voided the warranty.  I'm usually no where near an a/c outlet when I'm flying, so I spent the money saved on an extra battery.

I didn't realize charging the battery with a charger not made by DJI voided the warranty. Does it void the warranty of the drone too, or just the battery?

I'm going to guess that when a moderator sees this thread that they will chime in with the usual, "We do not recommend using any non-dji accessories."  Here is a link to info regarding it voiding any dji care refresh repair :  https://mavicpilots.com/threads/ ... care-refresh.35362/

I think the problem would arise if your AC fell out of the sky and your battery was faulty.  I don't know if  dji would know you were using an aftermarket charger.  As I said, it looks like a very nice charger and with that many good reviews you likely would never need to worry about problems.

Maybe consider a car charger?  The problem with those is that you need to charge with your engine running... I think that is the reason most of us have so many batteries.

Only the flight pack. But those chargers are great.

You won't have any concerns. Enjoy...

I went a different route, and bought a second OEM DJI 100w charger, for my four intelligent flight packs and RC battery requirements.

No reason to jeopardize my self.

Thanks for the information. I have two jobs coming up and will have access to AC power at both. I'll investigate further before pulling the trigger!
