I heard that the battery charger for the phantom 3 has been upgraded. Do we yet know what the charge time will be?

It's a lithium battery right? You can get more juice out of a lion battery by charging slower

The amount won't change and I'm sure the battery has been tested for being charged with the high current but overall yes, slower charging means longer battery life before it needs to be replacement with new one.

It takes longer than an hour to charge, from 20% took 80 minutes for me today on the 4th charge.

I think I have an issue with 2 batteries or maybe the charger. It takes 12 to 14 hours to reach full charge on each at about 25%.

That does not sound right. 12 - 14hrs
Surely there must be an explanation for them, longer than usual, charges.
I wonder if those batteries are some how faulty within?

Charging batteries for that long, would practically ruin my day.  ;-)
Especially since we aren't supposed to leave them unattended.

Any way to charge multiple batteries at once off the same charger? I had a ghetto rig that I bought off amazon for my vision 2 plus that worked well. Anything like that out there?

dont know where to say this but if anyone is interested i made a study of percentage charge per minute so as to know how long to charge batteries for storage. i store them at between 40 and 50% charge. so the slow charger the 57 w one charges at 1.8 % per minute and the 100 w fast charger charges at 2.4 % per minute.  so i finish flying at 30 % and want to store at 40% i will charge for 4 minutes plus with fast charger and 5 minute plus with slow charger
