    I am no expert in the subject and I didn't sleep at a Holiday Inn but based on past discussion I think this charger will be a little warm but not as hot as the standard 100W version.

    My question about its "rapid" charge ability.

    From past threads it has been stated that the on-board battery circuit regulates the amount of charge it will store in its belly.

    So how does DJI defeat this to be able to fully recharge a TB48 at 65 minutes.

    Dang it I already have 3 chargers. I guess buying 3 of these will almost give me one per battery. O well, shut up and take MORE of my money.

    Based on my chargings I've found the TB48 took nearly 80 minute to fully charge from ~20% charge.

    So at 65 minutes that is awesome.

    I guess, 25min time reduction for a $30 price increase. There's no reason they couldn't release a charger similar to that smart charger, that would allow for 30min charge times and charging these lipos at 3c especially if you're on a job site, that's worth it's weight in gold

    Mazz, I'd be interested in helping you out getting rid of your old ones should you go ahead and buy the new ones. I'm not in any hurry, and can live with the slower charge times of the 100W unit. Let me know if there is interest.

    Nice to hear Pops. I may sell off a couple when these new ones prove themselves. A faster charge would be great when on site at a job.

    This is the route I'd love to go. I'm just curious why no ones done it yet, including Adam Savage with his homemade 4 bay charger...

    Pffft why wasn't this in the kit in the first place... Haven't we dropped enough coin as it is.
    I guess that's how you get a billion in your pocket.
