DJI Phantom 2 car charger price

Open question to DJI. How on earth do you justify the price of the car charger you sell for the phantom 2 range? It is more than twice the price of the main charger.

There is no fathomable reason for it to cost this much and you must notice this due to lack of sales for it. It should cost in the $15-30 range at most. Checking your online store just now it costs 95 euros +postage. ($127).

There are now a plethora of alternative car charges appearing on ebay etc, no doubt with dubious build quality. It would be nice to be able to use the official car charger but certainly not at the present price.

I don't expect a response but needed to voice my frustration...

Yours, a phantom 2 pilot who uses an inverter in the car rather than pay the astronomical price for your car charger but hoping that will change.

Huh, I don't know why you'd want to pay that much, you could get a good charger for that price, using an inverter seems a really roundabout and expensive way to do it, rather than getting a good multichemistry charger.

+1. Do a search and you'll find a robust discussion on others using inverters as well as other solutions.
