Hey all,Would anyone know if it would hurt my batteries to charge with a 300w charger? I see a lot of people use 100w, and it would be really nice to be able to use a 300w but I dont want to ruin the batteries. I have the charging bank that comes with the fly more kit.
Thanks, Donavon

Hi there. Thank you for reaching out. The aircraft supports a maximum charging power of 65W. If the charging power is higher than 65W (If you are using 300W), it will also reduce its power to 65W during charging. Also, the Charging Hub can support a maximum charging power of 100W therefore, if you are using a 300W PD charger for charging, it will also reduced to 100W. Hope this helps.

Thanks, thats what I was looking for. So essentially what you're saying is it wont hurt to use a 300w charger but theres no benefit to one over a 100w?

Yes, it's safe to use a 300W charger.

Basically as said above most chargers will adapt to the power needed, just try to get the best quality you can afford, Anker and Ugreen are my preferred power plugs, GAN compatible.

You can use a 10.000 Watts supply power, the charger will only deliver the max supported by battery.
Important is to be extremely stable, as Li-Ion is highly sensitive to voltage variations in charging process.

I assume the hub you're looking at will charge multiple batteries at the same time, otherwise there would be no need for the hub to provide more than 65W of current.

Is such a hub safe? Possibly. People use all sorts of non-DJI products without any problems, but there are no guarantees and if you wind up damaging your drone, your only recourse is going after the manufacturer of the non-DJI charging hub.

I just bought the DJI 100w charger for my Air 3. Seems I might have been better just getting the 65w one?

Just so there is no confusion, a hub and a charger are two different things.

DJI has a charging hub for their batteries that accommodates three batteries, but it will only charge one battery at a time.

In addition to the charging hub, you have to have a power source for the hub, which can be the DJI charger or a third-party charger, As long as it complies with the USB PD (Power Delivery) specification, it should be safe to use with the DJI hub.

Given that the DJI hub only charges one battery at a time (starting with the battery that has the largest remaining charge and moving on from there) and that the hub doesn't require more than 65W of current, there is no real advantage to getting a charger that can provide more than that unless it has multiple USB ports. If it has multiple ports, you can use one for the hub and one for the remote controller or your phone. You can even charge a battery while it's in the drone by connecting the USB port on the drone to a USB PD port.

I use a third-party 100W charger because the DJI charger was out of stock at the time. Haven't had any problems and charges the batteries in the hub and my RC2 at the same time.
