    The Mini 4 is not charging while being used to operate the Inspire 1 V2.0
    Called Apple, they called DJI, Dji said the controller is not supposed to charge the Ipad during use.....only Android products.......
    WHAT?

    Correct.
    It never has on any of the higher powered tablets (Apple or Android).
    It 'tops' it up/trickle charges slightly but that's all.
    Has been covered many time previously on the forum.

    This is because the Inspire USB port can only supply the old standard USB protocol of 500mA max. Most modern tablets/phones will not go into a full state of charge at this low current.

    Have changed your thread title to something describing your issue/question. :)

    I have the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7" (the latest model) and @The Editor is right it only does a trickle charge, just about enough to keep it from losing battery percentage and that's it.
