Better way to charge DJI batteries

    Ever wonder how you could achieve the perfect storage voltage on your DJI battery? Here is a simple, cost-effective solution to charge your DJI batteries perfectly to storage voltage:

    Watch this video on YouTube.

    Note: Warning

    I have done my best to ensure there are no mistakes made on this page. Please use common sense and verify settings before testing this out. I always test the charge leads once I get them with my multimeter to ensure I am seeing the voltage that I expect. Sure the charger has some built-in safety features, but I want to make sure I’m seeing the expected voltage. This means that the pins are correct on the cable.

    The charger in the video is the Imax B6 V2 AC. It has a charge limit of 50W and a discharge limit of 5W. I picked up the Hota D6+ (not the D6 or D6pro, look for the important difference before buying) for my LiPo/LiHV crazed life, and it will charge up to 300W on AC and 700W on DC!!! It does require XT60 battery plugs so keep that in mind. The same rules apply as mentioned in the video.

    The dischargers mentioned were the ISDT FD-100 and ISDT FD-200. The 200 has Bluetooth so you can change the storage voltage setting for example.

    Here’s the settings you will need:

    Mavic 2 Pro & Zoom

    Chemistry: LiHV
    Number of cells: 4 (select 4S -- 15.2V)
