Just received the the DJI battery Station. This is an early production model but should represent final product and UI. First thing that you will notice is the size. I even thought the posted specs were wrong but they are not. It’s a really compact unit and feels lighter than I was expecting.

Once opened you will notice it holds 12 ( 6pairs) of tb50, 2 wb37 and a wb charger. I do wish it held another pair or two but I do still see people having a battery case or two. I know this will only replace one battery crate for me and will still use the 2nd.

Once powered on you select your mode, either charge or discharge. Under charge you have fast, quiet and normal. Under discharge you have the option of 50% or 25%. When discharging from 100% down to 25, it takes approximately 1hr 23mins and discharging down to storage from full is about 53mins. While charging in normal mode from 25% will take approximately 1hr 9min and 60mins from 50% to 100%. In fast mode I was able to get 2pairs at 25% to 90% in less the 25mins.

While charging or discharging you see the current percentage, voltage, charge current and temperature. You can then drill down to on each battery and see cycles, health status, serial number, firmware version and individual cell voltage. The menu systems is really straight forward and easy to navigate. During charging or discharging the system is on the load side but this is to be expected on a system this small and powerful. It is nice that they offered a...Continue Reading

For all the new or soon to be owners, I thought I would put a list together of some great videos for you to watch. These are even good for current owners. You never know what you might learn after reviewing them.

1. How many batteries can be charged simultaneously in Normal mode and Quick mode?
In Normal mode, the DJI Battery Station can charge up to eight TB50 batteries simultaneously. If there is a significant difference of voltage between two vertically aligned batteries (e.g., in slots A1 and B1; please refer to the TB50 Battery Station User Guide for slot IDs), the Battery Station will charge the lower one first, and then charge both together when they are equally charged.
In Quick mode, the Station can simultaneously charge up to two groups (e.g., in slots A1 and A2, as well as D1 and D2). It will charge the four TB50 batteries to 90% first, then 100% for any batteries that are still inserted.

2. In addition to TB50 batteries, what else can be charged with the Battery Station?
Apart from eight TB50 battery ports, the DJI Battery Station is also equipped with two 20-26V/3A DC OUT Remote Controller Ports and two 5V/2A USB Ports, which can charge Cendence, Inspire, and Phantom series remote controllers, CrystalSky, Cendence Battery Charging Hub, and other mobile devices.

3. What is Silent mode?
In Silent mode, the Battery Station will restrict the charging current, lower the speed of the cooling fan, and turn off the beeper to reduce operating noise. This mode is recommended in quiet environments with abundant time for charging. Silent mode can be enabled in the menu under Normal mode.

4. Can Silent mode be enabled both in Normal and Quick mode?
No. Silent mode...Continue Reading
