Hi all,
I did not purchase a “Fly more” combo and there is no battery charger with the standard version of the MM.

I have, however, purchased a new smartphone, a Xiaomi Note 8 Pro with 6Gb of RAM and Android 64-bits, because the DJI Fly application wasn't compatible with any of my Android devices (being all 32-bits).  

The new phone comes with a fast charger, I was wondering if I could use it to charge the batteries on my MM:

Xiaomi fast charger

Xiaomi fast charger


Is that safe to use with the MM? Will it charge the battery faster?

It's safe to use but it's unlikely you'll get fast charging.

12V*1.5A and 9V*2A sounds like 18W fast charging and should work just fine.

That simply says the brick is fast charging compatible. I doubt the drone itself is. I'd be glad to be wrong.

The FAQ on the MM says it supports fast charging:

Does Mavic Mini support Quick Charge?
It supports Quick Charge 2.0 18W. ...

On the charger does the circle with a lightning bolt through it (making it a Q) with the #3 in the upper right not mean it is Q 3.0 Quick Charger?  I am using these Q 3.0 units and they seem to work well -

Hi DJI Stephen,
Thanks for the reply, looks lke the charger will work then.

(As for the “recommended” smartphone, please don't get me started on this, I think this is utterly ridiculous, I already had to purchase a new smartphone specifically for the MM, adding €250 on top of the €399 for the MM. I am not going to change it, no matter what DJI recommends. As far as I can tell, DJI Fly works very well with the Xiaomi Note 8 Pro.)

Hi, did you upgraded your Redmi Note 8 to Android 10 (MIUI 11)? If yes, do you see any problem with DJI Fly after upgrade?

The phone is fully updated, but still on Android 9 with MIUI 11.0.2 stable.

No problem with DJI Fly whatsoever.

You are very much welcome o4dn and thank you for the additional information you have given us regarding the mobile device you are using. Rest assured that our DJI R&D team are continuously testing multiple devices to be added on the said list in the near future and this thread will be a big help on that testing as well. Thank you and have a safe flight always.
