    Just received my eBay multi-charger and I am putting into the test and let's see the outcome. The idea is to see how soon each battery will be fully charged.

    Equipment:
    1) Custom made 500W 26V PSU
    2) eBay Multicharger
    3) 1-TB4700 and 1-TB4800 both having approx 20% charge

    There is a popup when your video is played trying to get you to download some software to see the video correctly. I would be cautious and not click on that.

    I'll fix it soon. Current result are inconclusive. I used the connector for the Dji and it seems to by default recognize it as a Dji charger, which it is not.

    I am making a DC plug and see if it recognizes it as a non-dji power supply.

    Okay guys. test update:

    I kicked up the test with using 2 eBay boards and with different power connector all sharing the same power source.

    Observations:
    1. using the 15V made adapter draws more power than using the DJI adapter plug
    2. you can only charge 2 batteries at a time not 3.
    3. for this test I am charging 4 batteries

    Part II:
    1. aside from the smell and visual confirmation the hot cement resistor it all seems to work fine.
    2. as stated before the 15V DC plug draws more power and it really shows.
