Anyone using the M600 Hex charger with a 1000 watt generator, such as the yamaha eu1000?
I'd be interested in charge times etc, I have a remote job coming up.

I am a purchaser of the orignal M600 that shipped without an appropriate charging sytem.
I had to buy 3x180 watt hubs to charge before DJI introduced the Hex (and now it ships for free with the M600 or M600 pro!).

Hi,
if you're using the 240v or 110v from the genie  it will be the same charge time as you would see at home on the house supply. @540w for the battery charger a 1000w genset will cope just fine.
Time your home charger and your good to go. Solar and inverter is a bit more difficult to calculate due to weather conditions at the time.
hoped that helped.

Thanks,  so what times are you getting with the hex charger?  I don't have the hex and want to compare to using the 3 hubs.

Hi,
Just recharged from 22% and it took 103 mins.

hope that helps

I think I'm getting better times with the 3 hubs, and I can leave 12 batteries on charge, so I may stick with them

I agree with the hubs but the box is a wee bit neater and thats it.

Hi there. Camped out here on the Nullarbor. The Yamaha 1000 generator is going fine. I think I'm going to have to order a hex charger for the times when I only have half an hour so I can at least top up the batteries, does the hex work like that? Say I have the batteries at 40% and I put them on the hex for half an hour will it top them up to say 60%. Will it do this equally with every battery.Trouble with the hubs is that I have to fully charge as they don't charge simulataneously.

I must say DJI I'm pretty annoyed that I purchased one of the first M600's had 3 months of trouble while I was on assignment which costs thousands in reshoots. Also I  had to purchase the hubs because you didn't have a professional solution. And now I have  to buy a hex charger when everyone who now buys a m600 or m600 pro gets one free.

The Hex charter is 6 individual 100W chargers so when you put your batteries on, they will all start to charge simultaneously, but as far as I know they are not linked together to even out different charge levels between batteries should that be the case, (until the point they all reach 100%). I have made 5 or 6 charge time tests from various charge levels. From 4% - 100% it took 82 min. One important point to make here is when the battery says 100% charge (tb47s) it is at 4250 mAh now and not the nominal 4500 mAh for a new battery.

One other thing to note is that two batteries both showing 100% charge (in Dji GO app) might not have the same capacity level. The % level figure is based on the battery's current Maximum charge level and not its nominal value. So when you discharge your batteries in flight you might end up with different charge levels across the batteries if they don't have the same charge capacity to start with, when they show the same % level, because the batteries are discharged to the same voltage level, ( more or less).
