    HI all, I have been looking for definite answers to this but so far no luck..

    Is anyone using their own lipo charger to charge the Inspire's battery?
    I have seen youtube videos of Phantom batteries being charged using the PB settings on lipo chargers so I'm just wondering if it's the same with Inspire batteries?

    I have a 1000w lipo charger I would love to use.

    I'd stick to the original charger. Last thing you'd want is Dji not covering a warranty claim due to an aftermarket charger.
    I've got 2 chargers and 3 batteries. I'm currently thinking of buying another charger just to speed things up a little. They're super cheap considering what we payed the bird and the batts...

    Maybe if you compare this to the total price,but it's still overpriced I believe.You can't charge battery and remote at the same time,and no powercord is included.

    Not when you're buying a second charger.

    Radio Shack has powercords (going out of business sale). Half price.
