Dear All!

I bought an open-box no warranty, Anafi Drone, and also an extra battery for an additional $110 on amazon, battery will arrive in about two weeks, for now I use the battery that came, it lasts around 18 minutes per charge.

The drone package did not include a charger, at first I was thinking the seller didn't deliver me the full pack, but googled and find out, charger is not included.

Then I googled further, and official parrot website says, "use any USB phone charger".

So first charger I tried was OnePlus Warp charger, when connected I had an initial blink just it didn't charge, no led blinking.

So then I tried Xiaomi charger and this one charged the battery witnin approx 1.5 hours.

I attach photos of both chargers.

Questions:..

1. Any reason OnePlus charger did not charge it?

2. Could OnePlus charger damage the drone or the battery while was connected for approx 30 - 50 minutes until I understood it does not charge.

3. Does Xiaomi charger is good to use and totally safe and healthy for the battery and the drone?

4. Does the battery alone or when inside the drone, has protection against wrong chargers so those does not damage the battery or the drone?

This drone was a long time dream of mine, finally I found one here in Tbilisi and bought right away.

Thank you!

Get USB-C PD (power delivery) that specifically states it will provide 12V at over 2A on multiple outputs simultaneously. I have a 65w Baseus that can charge the controller and 2 batteries in under an hour.
