I don't think the remote controller is a quick charge. Maybe it is. Would be easy enough to find out.So if I want to buy a wall charger to charge the hub and controller at the same time that’s comparable to the dji charger what one should I get ?
Dan, you seem to know your stuff when it comes to battErie’s, question for you, if you use a standard 5v charger would this improve battery life over quick charging? I’m wondering is it almost like a trickle charge? CheersThe overall concern is watts, which is volts x amps. The higher the volts, the less amps for a given wattage.
Now why do we care if we up the voltage rather than amps? Two reasons:
Too much amps through a wire will burn it out.
Wires have a small but finite resistance. As you push more amps through a resistance the more voltage and ultimately wattage is lost through the resistance.
This is why your stove, oven, AC, electric clothes drier and water heater typically runs on 240v.
So to get more watts to charge the battery with small USB wires, QC and iSmart use higher voltages.
QC uses 5v, 9v, and 12v.
Basing the results you show in your picture, you're delivering 17.8W.
At 5v, you'd be drawing 3.55A for the same amount of watts.
Excellent question. For our quads, I don't think it matters since the batteries don't get warm at all charging. There's much more stress on them flying.Dan, you seem to know your stuff when it comes to battErie’s, question for you, if you use a standard 5v charger would this improve battery life over quick charging?

I tried with QC output of my power bank vs "iSmart" output that doesn't rapid charge according to my phone and tablet. Using both on the RC, LED blink was the same.It does... the rate the lights blink changes just like the battery hub when you use the quick charger vs a standard charger.
The charger and charged device need to negotiate the voltage, with the charged device making the request. You would not want to push 12v before the device requests and is ready for it.It sounds like QC3 standard .So its should be possible to charge directly with 12V also the battery inside the mavic mini ? Some one tested this ?
