DJI, the world’s leading drone manufacturer, has recently released a new accessory for their CrystalSky and Cendence products – the Battery Charging Hub. This device is designed to make charging multiple batteries at once a breeze, but it’s important to know how to use it properly to ensure the longevity of your batteries.
Firstly, it’s important to note that the Battery Charging Hub is only compatible with the CrystalSky and Cendence batteries. Attempting to charge other batteries with this device could result in damage to both the batteries and the charging hub.
To use the Battery Charging Hub, simply connect it to a power source using the included power cable. Then, insert up to four CrystalSky or Cendence batteries into the slots on the hub. The hub will automatically detect the batteries and begin charging them in order of their remaining charge level.
It’s important to note that the Battery Charging Hub does not come with a power adapter. You will need to use a compatible adapter with an output of 17.6V and a minimum power rating of 57W. DJI recommends using their own 57W Power Adapter or 180W Power Adapter for best results.
When charging your batteries with the Battery Charging Hub, it’s important to ensure that the batteries are not overheating. If a battery becomes too hot, the charging process will automatically pause until the battery has cooled down. This is to prevent damage to the battery and the charging hub.
It’s also important to note that the Battery Charging Hub does not come with any batteries. You will need to purchase CrystalSky or Cendence batteries separately. DJI recommends using their own Intelligent Battery for best results.
When charging your batteries with the Battery Charging Hub, it’s important to keep an eye on the charging progress. The hub features LED indicators that show the charging status of each battery. A solid green light indicates that the battery is fully charged, while a flashing green light indicates that the battery is still charging.
Once all of your batteries are fully charged, simply remove them from the hub and store them in a cool, dry place. It’s important to store your batteries at a partial charge (around 40-60%) to ensure their longevity. DJI recommends charging your batteries at least once every three months to maintain their health.
In conclusion, the DJI Battery Charging Hub is a great accessory for anyone who owns multiple CrystalSky or Cendence batteries. By following these simple steps, you can ensure that your batteries are charged safely and efficiently, and that they will last for many flights to come.
