    Do all batteries charge together at the same rate as one?

    Yeah they do. And you can deep cycle charge them all at once. Plus it has chargers on the side for your iPad.

    I can ship there, but you would have to cover shipping.

    I have one of these and love it. It's the difference between what high end RC folks come to expect versus the "smart brick" charger DJI sends with the airframe. A very good investment in my opinion. I bought mine new for $400...

    Can you sent me your email address, so I can get my U.K supplier to contact you, i.e payment and shipping arrangement. Thank you.

    Two advantages over the DJI battery hub are that it can charge four batteries at once, the battery hub will charge one then the next and so on. And the Powercharge can do a deep discharge and power cycle for you - so you don't have to do any silly low level hovering to run the batteries down every 10 or so cycles.

    Just a note on the Deep Discharge as this has been gone into I'm length on RCG

    It does not calibrate the batter as per DJI recommended every 20 cycles down to 3.35v per cell, it's a deep discharge but not a calibration ( yes what is the difference ???) and will not trigger the fuel gauge to reset in the battery.

    So you still need to perform the DJI calibration every 20 cycles manually.

    Also some reports of battery's coming off not fully charged, it been said the deep cycling function will make it fully charge but I don't know as I don't have one

    There are a few fairly unhappy folks with theirs but there are as many happy ones so I really don't know.

    SPC have not been clear in responding to questions about this either just get cryptic responses TBH.

    Just some info

    It's a lovely bit of kit IF it works as it should.

    The DJI hub is a sequential charger and only does one at a time. The why, probably cheaper build. I own and have been using the SPC4500 for many months and have never had a problem. It's far higher build quality than anything DJI has. Remember, DJI has a vested interest in selling batteries, not making them last longer. That why every airframe model they make requires a different battery.
