Any other recommendations for a mains charger for the Anafi battery pack?
The Anker one is 30W output on the USB C port.
Would a charger with a higher output be quicker or is the charge rate limited by the battery?
I use helperinc 73W USB C PD3.0 charger.
Works well and reaches a charging time of 98 Minutes.
I think the charging current is limited by the battery and a faster charging is not possible, but a charging time under 100 Minutes is good for me.
Any USB C PD charger with min. 36W should reach this charging time.
OK so I already have a USB type C mains charger, an IMUTO 60W 6 port charger station.
I’ve ordered another two mains chargers, (I bought the anafi with 2 extra batteries from drones direct in the UK) so I can charge all 3 at the same time.
I went for an Inatek 60W USB C charger from Amazon and a 48W Syncwire Quickcharger 3.0 from ebay.
I already have an AUKEY 1m USB C TO USB C cable, I’ve ordered the 0.5M Belkin Thunderbolt 3 USB C cable listed earlier and the Inatek charger comes with a 2m USB C TO USB C cable.
I’ll let you know if I find any differences between them and in what combination they work best.
I dropped in to Lindy UK today and bought a couple of their cables, one of their 20cm USB A to Micro B for connecting the controller to the phone, a 50cm USB 3.1 C to C with Power (rated at 100W Power Delivery) and one of Lindy's USB C Power/Voltage monitors.(DC<24V/6A)
I used battery 1 (of 3) today down to RTH level. Plugged it in to the Imuto mains charger C port with the Lindy cable.
The monitor indicated 4.94V charging at 1.75A. This took 3 hours to charge the pack fully.
I don't think the Imuto charger is up to the job.
Lets hope the new chargers arrive soon.
I used battery 2 (of 3) yesterday down to RTH (about 5%) level. Plugged it in to the Syncwire mains charger C port with the Lindy cable.
The monitor indicated 12V charging at 1.4A. This took 1 hour 45 mins to charge the pack fully.
What was said before about max charge rate seems to be holding out here.
In which case the (normally £11.19 but get 1 at 30% off if you buy another) charger and £17.99 cable would seem to be the way to go.
If only someone made a 3 port USB C PD charger...
Battery 3 (of 3) that I used yesterday, down to RTH (about 5%) level.
Plugged into the Inateck 60W charger with the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 cable.
The monitor indicated 12V charging at 1.45A. This took 1 hour 25 mins to charge the pack fully.
A little faster than the others but the charger is rated higher and subsequently more expensive at £29.99.
I'll try again with some different (less expensive) cables to see if it's the cable is making the difference or the charger.
