    The Matrice 600 Battery Travel Case can hold up 2 DJI Hex Chargers and 18 Intelligent Flight Batteries (TB47S / TB48S / TB47D / TB48D). Integrated wheels make the travel case easy to maneuver. Using the reserved spaces, batteries can be charged without removing batteries or chargers from the travel case.

    Specifications

    Net Weight: 10.5 kg
    Max Internal Load: 18 kg
    Compatible Batteries: TB47S / TB48S / TB47D / TB48D Intelligent Flight Battery × 18 pcs
    Compatible Chargers: MC6S600 (DJI Hex Charger) × 2 pcs
    Operating Temperature: -10° to 50 ° C


    The Hex Charger is available from DJI for £289/$299

    The hard case is £291/$299


    Looking at it this should charge 6x TB48 in about 1:45m by my estimate, no info on storage charge though.

    Does it actually put out 23amps in which case yes or does it sequentially switch 3.83amps to each battery like the pathetic charge hub does?
    DJI's definition of simultaneously has always been different to the rest of the world.

    I'm not convinced this thing is capable of that kind of current looking at it.

    lol I honestly don't know, I'm assuming it's parallel charging for that price and based on the info.

    23A on a Switch mode should be no problem in a package that size as PC supplies can easily do it.

    That's very true - I guess it would be around 30-35 amp when you factor in the additional items connected and a bit of overhead.
    Problem is, it's DJI so it might be 4amps max and charge everything sequentially. :p

    Does it also discharge the batteries?
    Really tired of draining my batteries in my Inspire when I get home just so I can fully charge afterwards.
    At night time, my neighbours must wonder what the flashing yellow light is permeating throughout the lower floors!

    Lol

    No idea details are sketchy, it would be nice, tbh this is something DJI could add to battery firmware fairly easily rather than the charger, triple press on to charge to storage.

    The Phantom Angel does the discharge to storage and cycling pretty niftely...although it is one at a time :(

    I still don't understand why people ask for that since the battery do it themselves after the timeout.

    Full discharge I can understand, but storage?

    Looks to be nothing more than a larger hub (DJI Web site indicates that it needs the Inspire 1 180w power adapter AC)

    No it needs the IEC mains cable not the charger it's self, the wording is poor and they need to change that.

    They should just have included the damn thing for 30p as this is going to confuse the hell out of people.

    This does charge 6 packs at the same time and should be able to do 6x TB48 in about an hour and forty five minutes

    I wish this would handle Phantom batteries too.

    I have one of the 4-port chargers from DJI for my Matrice 100 and it works great. I can mix the TB47's and TB48's no problem.

    It should do the job of charging 6 batteries simultaneously, although at standard rate identical to a single 100W stock DJI charger, which is not too impressive. Too bad they didn't employ 180W power supply for each channel, delivering beef-ier 6A charging current ... Cycling/storage discharge option will be nice too, although sufficient energy dissipation is more difficult to resolve than one may expect. Indeed the mentioned above Angel device does this effortlessly in no time. Assuming the performance within published specs, DJI charger may seriously challenge more expensive Smart Power charger.
