Anyone seen a youtube review or anywhere that mentions the power ability of the USB-C port on the Air 2? On the previous Air, the port was physically not able to charge but sync only.

Hopefully DJI put in the ability to charge from the USB-C port as it was much requested with the first Air.

You can't charge through the port on the drone.

Hi, fansa6b0fb5c. Thanks for your attention. Battery can not be charged from the USB-C port. We apologize for any inconvenience caused. Users can connect the battery to the charger to charge it, or insert the battery into the battery charging hub to charge three batteries. The battery cannot be charged if users connect the aircraft to the charger.

I would assume that it's because the battery is a bit power hungry so they probably didn't want to waste on putting in components to accomodate for a higher voltage USB-C port to charge the battery, since it'll take much longer and most will use the charger.... Just a thought. It would have been nice though
