Prior to owning the I1p, life was pretty organized and smooth. Routines were followed without incident and there was a general feeling that it was under control. Now.... and yes, I'm blaming DJI, I live with a constant threat that overwhelms me daily. I feel like I need to hire an assistant, JUST TO CHARGE BATTERIES every damn night!!!!

It used to be pretty simple. Phone, tablet, smart watch, laptop and whenever a shoot was upcoming, two DSLR batteries. I could handle that. Now, I have an additional tablet with the iPad for the I1P, an additional phone with the iPhone for the Osmo, two power sources to recharge those in the field, 6 Inspire batteries with more on the way and 3 Osmo batteries. I find I keep track of local Starbucks when in the field, not for coffee, not for internet, but just in case I have to charge something up midway through a project.

DJI... you have made my life hell and I want to know which support email I should contact to FIX THIS!!!!!!

That was pretty funny FT1

I think global warning is DJI's fault also by the way...


I have a inverter (1500 watt ) that I charge my batteries with  sometimes with from my car if needed.  You might want to consider something along these lines as well.  Mine attaches directly to the battery terminals  under the Hood so I can draw more power this way.  I have seen some RC Pilots run Heavy Gauge wire to the back of there pickup where they have a Power Strip Installed as well.

My truck has an outlet in the bed. Makes for charging the batteries easy moving from shoot to shoot.

I got to look at one at CineGear this past week... I should say, I got to drool on one. So I'll buy 5 more charging hubs. Nothing strange about that right? lol

The only thing left is to buy a Tesla, Volt, or maybe a Prius and then invest in some good energy stocks....

By the way , was  "Flightime " the name of the Band "The Time "  in the early days ?  I think Prince was involved with them somehow as well .  I have  made some friends with pilots in the past who I did not know were famous in the world of cinema and sports in the past.  We all  share same the same passion though for remote flight .

It is also just a cool Avatar name for flying though too !  Just wondering , You never Know ........

When selecting screen names, I was pretty boring , Next time I am going to be  like,  Ba-As-Mo-Fo  or Maverick or Top gun or something cool !

No you're good as the M600 comes with 2 charging hubs
Also, your title is taken literally by anyone who is browsing and I am supposed to check on these and remedy the situation. A slight title edit would help me out with corporate

OK we feel your frustration but this is not another charger.... It will replace 2 iPad chargers, 2 remote chargers and 4 Inspire battery chargers. It charges them all at one time. I realize this is not OEW DJI stuff... but it has awesome quality and fit for function!!

Donnie... You get two points! It was actually Flyte Time but close enough. The moniker, for me, was just my first username when I signed up for an earthlink account so many, many years ago. I mentioned in another post, I hate that I was forced to accept the '1'. I use flighttime pretty much everywhere.

That's one of the benefits of flying. You might run into anyone at some small FBO in the wilds.

      FT , Just go to the original post and then go to "edit "on the bottom right  , then you can "Edit " the subject line.  It is real easy and no biggie.

This will help out brother Ken and put a feather in His cap with the higher ups .... I like that he does it that way rather than just changes it on you .  ( I have had mine edited also )

Like  "DJI has tuned my life into a ........."

It adds mystery to the post , or something  more of your likening of course , I am sure you will think of something .
