I'm planning on heading out into the country and am looking for a way to recharge my Mavic batteries overnight while in a tent away from power points.
I have an EasyAcc power bank that holds a chunky 26,000mAh that technically should power up my batteries but can't figure a way of linking its USB output to the Mavic batteries to transfer the power.  


Is there anyone out there who, with a little lateral thinking, can help me out with this problem?

The Fly More Combo does come with a power bank adapter.

I think this is the opposite of what the OP is wanting:

"The Mavic Battery to Power Bank Adaptor is designed to provide power from the Mavic Intelligent Flight Battery to mobile devices such as smart phones or tablets. Use the Mavic battery as a power pack."

You will never get enough juice out of an usb port to charge your batteries. You need a power bank with a 12v out like a car battery booster and the mavic car charger.

I am not sure why they made this while we don't have enough battery to fly
And who is going to buy this power bank for $90 instead buying an actual power bank for less.

buy a motorcycle battery and use the car charger. I know its kinda heavy but not to heavy.  you can also tether a bunch of d cell batteries to get 14 volts and then use the car charger off the d cell batteries. 8 d cell batteries would give you 13.5 volts. one d cell is 13,000 mah. just thinking outside box. another thing is how far from a car will you be?

so when you are out in the field and you forgot to charge your remote controller, you can, and your phone. downside is you loose a charged mavic battery.

Oh right. I never thought this adapter through, thinking it was power bank -> mavic battery. Why the heck would you the other way around...?
Anyway, tracking. Interested if there is a way.

you can find powerbank which deliver 12V (jack DC) + 5V (USB) ports. But intensity is limited to 2 to 4 A. You can find on Amazon (for example) some powerbank 20000 to 50000mAh with 9V,12V,15V,18V,19V,20V output for computer...
Mavic Combo comes with a car battery charger adaptor. You can change the connector by a DC jacl 5.5/2.1 for example.
But Mavic battery requiers power ! lot of power to charge. So I'

I am planning on doing a motorcycle trip and charge the Mavic batteries using the battery of the motorcycle via a USB connection. Does somebody know if I can use the Mavic Battery to Power Bank Adaptor the other way around to charge the batteries, instead of using the Mavic battery as a power pack?

Hi Guys,
I'm investigating also the way that I can charge the mavic batteries on the go. I saw this AC Portable Charger, can this works? Does any one try this one?

I have this and it is useful for getting a phone online when no other power is available or recharging the remote.  Do I want to waste a battery for it?  No.  But if there is no other way, then it will become most useful.

With USB C power banks there is the possibility to do what the OP is asking about. A lot of them are being designed to charge laptops so they would work, but the fact still stands that there is no easy way to connect a MavicPro battery to a USB type c to charge... A USB type c to MavicPro Battery pin connector wire would be nice.  Though I doubt that one will ever exist.

100$ to charge a 100$ battery... I've looked at all options... if you dont have access to a charging port (car or any motorized one) think about buying more DJI batteries.

I use a 4S 10Ah Li-Ion battery and the Mavic 12V car charger that came with the flymore combo.  That gives me 3+ Mavic battery charges.  The 4S Li-Ion gives 16.8V when fully charged and the car charger seems to be able to handle that (the cigarette lighter sockets on my car can put out over 16V when the car is running anyways).

I've found that the Mavic car charger cuts out at about 12.4 volts - so you only normally get less than 50% of the capacity if you run it from an off line 12V lead acid battery.  The charger draws 6A+ when running. If the supply current limits the charger stops charging the battery and trys to re-start (most annoying).

I can pretty well get a full discharge out of the 4S pack down at 12.4V - and its a darn sight lighter than the equivalent lead acid pack.  I charge the 4S pack off my RC charger. I'm sure a 4S RC LiPo pack would work just as well.  10AH 10C Li-Po packs were going for about £35 ($40) recently - so you could probaly do the whole job for less than $100 even if you had to buy a RC battery charger.

[view_image]

Nope - The Mavic car charger draws 6.5A at 14V - so that would need about 20A from the 5V supply.  If the charger can't get 6.5A it stops charging.  3.6A at 5.1V is just not enough even if the 5V to 12V converter could handle it (which I'm pretty sure it wouln't be able to do).
