One of the frustrating things about the MA is that the multi-charger only charges one battery at a time.  My understanding is that if you plug three batteries into the MA multi-charger, it will determine which is fullest and top it off the go to the next, etc.  But in the end, it only charges one at a time.

Does the multi-charger for the MA2 actually charge all the batteries connected to it at the same time?

the only DJI drone i have owned where the multi charger hub did all at once was the Spark. well also the Inspire 1 with a Hex charger but that thing was built like 6 chargers in one. the Phantom 3, MP1, MP2, MA, MM, all do the 1 at a time

But make sure to see the topic about not using the multi charger for the first charge. Otherwise the battery may become a useless "brick".

No, the battery charging hub of Mavic Air 2 still cannot charge three batteries at the same time, it enhances efficiency by charging batteries in sequence according to their remaining power level, with more fully-charged batteries receiving power first.

Thanks DJI Mindy - It just doesn't make much sense.  It certainly doesn't enhance efficiency - if so, how?  I know there is enough power in the charger to do all three at once.  As long as the batteries are at a correct temperature, why not charge them as soon as they're on the charger?

There were aftermarket chargers with the feature you want for the Mini 2 months after release. I think it may be the same for the A2.

Can someone how this makes sense then if it doesn’t charge them all at the same time? Why is this useful then? I can just plug them in one by one and charge them lol. Dji really? We’re spending thousands and dji can’t make the charger charge them all at the same time? I can do that on my rc giant scale loop batteries so I guess dji could easily do this. They are not doing it tho why don’t know!

The only way the multi-charger is at all useful is to keep you from forgetting to swap batteries when they reach full charge.  I just plug them in one at a time.  There is no reason to shove this fairly useless multi-charger "stick" into the bag.

I guess that tiny pins in connector (power supply to 3 battery plate) can not handle power for 3 batteries. I would like to see the storage mode included as well as simultaneous charging...
