Hey, DJI Grace here! Today I would like to share something about Spark batteries. Enjoy! The following article originates from: BUYING GUIDES
Power Up with The Spark Portable Charging Station



DJI just released the Spark Portable Charging Station. How many batteries can it charge? Is it easy to carry and use? We will explore the features of this powerful charging station and answer all your questions.
The highly portable Spark portable charging station supplies power to Intelligent Flight Batteries and smart devices wherever you go with an impressive amount of charge capacity. Without removing the battery from the aircraft, you can simply place Spark into the station to begin charging, and the Charging Station features two additional charging ports for
spare batteries.

The charging station has a capacity of  5000mAh,54Wh and a voltage of 13.05V. When fully charged, it can charge up to three Spark batteries in just 150 minutes.When connected to an external power source, the Charging Station will charge itself as well.Using the USB port, it can also provide power to mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets.

Usage
1. Toggle the board’s securing switch to open the board and then align the battery with the battery slot track and insert it. Align the external charging contact on the aircraft’s battery with the charging station’s contact, and then insert the aircraft into the station. Close the securing board and ensure the board is fastened.

2. Short press the power button once, then press again and hold to power on the station to start charging.

3. When charging, it will first charge the battery in the aircraft, and then the two spare batteries in accordance with their power levels from high to low.

4.  The charging station’s charger is compatible with the Spark‘s battery charger. It takes approximately 95 minutes to fully charge the station.
5. You can also use this station as battery charging hub. When it’s connected to an external power source, it takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the station, an aircraft-connected battery together with the other two spare batteries.
6. There are three ports on the side of the charging station. They are(from left to right):
  • USB Port (5V/2A):  to charge remote controller and mobile devices;
  • Charging port : to charge the station and intelligent flight batteries;
  • Micro USB port : to connect the station to a computer for firmware updates.

Now you have a way to stop worrying about running out of battery on the go.  No matter if you are out for a bike ride, a long hike or a road trip, you can easily pack the Spark Portable Charging Station and enjoy a long flight.

yes. Since freshly powered batteries are worth more than batteries that are powered up hours ago

150 minutes charging 3 batteries.
Is that charging one battery at a time, with 50 minutes for each?

This statement is 100% correct, looked to buy the Pgytech Skins Pack, £14.00



They want £10.26 shipping, how much does a box of vinyl skins weigh

And you have to pay an additional £17 for a charging station bag to carry it in. Come on, surely that should be in the price

Is it charging with only 2 batteries and WITHOUT Spark in the Station? If yes: How long will that need?

Yep, but if there is no Spark inside?
Because without a Spark and a third battery, the two could be the first flown batteries.
And you can fly with the other 1 or 2 or x batteries, during you charging already the first 2.
And charging should be quicker.
How long would be the time for only one inside?
Just trying to find out what is possible.

I think this only looks good, but I would prefer the Smatree charger over this anytime. Cost: $60, shipped, Weight: 800g (100g more than DJI's) Capacity: 8100 mAH  (can charge 6 spark batteries) but where it shines is it can charge 3 batteries in JUST 40 MINUTES.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075K7V42Z/
The only downside I see is it would take about 10-15 hours to charge it using the stock 5V 2A charger. I wish Smatree would come up with a fast charger for their charging station soon.

Too bad about the power connector being located on the front of the station. A bit unsightly, if you ask me. I understand the USB port being there, for charging your RC but I envision the station sitting in its dedicated spot on my shelf, connected semi-permanently when I'm not out and about. The power cable sticking from the front (official photos won't show you this ;-)) kind of ruins the aesthetics. Not that it stopped me from ordering, mind you... Also, I wonder if DJI opted for some standard form-factor Lithium-Ion cells like 18650, making them possible to replace should such a need arise, officially or otherwise.

I see your point. I would just get 2 or 3 more batteries to take with me.
Update: Never mind. At only $89, it does have value.

Which would be exactely perfect, if 2 batts could be charged in there.
Or even 3, but without Spark!

But in case the Spark has to be in there, too?

Thanks Elektra, I would rather wait and order it from a UK supplier, your shipping costs are way overpriced. Over £10 is rather high when most UK suppliers will either offer free shipping or ship a reasonable cost.

Hi Elektra,
Thanks for that but if I wish to purchase via PayPal due to protection for purchases will it add the shipping fee once I hit the payment button as it’s not showing any shipping fees prior to that when I use the PayPal button from your site?.

@Elektra,
I’ve paid via PayPal & thankfully it did add the shipping cost but not until you’d confirmed the order & pressed the pay option.
I’m  Looking forward to receiving the charger not only for it’s main purpose but also to help carry it all together safely & storage at home so my Good Lady can stop complaining about “My Mess”.
