DJI Battery Station: FAQs
- How many batteries can be charged simultaneously in Normal mode and Quick mode?
In Normal mode, the DJI Battery Station can energize eight TB50 batteries at the same time. In the process if there is a noteworthy distinction of voltage between two vertically adjusted batteries (e.g., in openings 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 afterward charge both together when they are similarly charged.
In Quick mode, the Station can simultaneously charge up to two gatherings (e.g., in slot A1 and A2, just as D1 and D2). It will charge the four TB50 batteries to 90% first, at that point 100% for any batteries that are still inserted.
2. In addition to TB50 batteries, what else can be charged with the Battery Station?
It also contains 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 mobile devices.
Silent mode will lower the speed of the fan, restrict the charging current and turn off the beeper so there’s no operating noise, this mode is best while working in a quiet environment. It is enabled in the menu under the normal mode.
4. Can Silent mode be enabled both in Normal and Quick mode?
Silent mode can be only enabled in normal mode because in quick charging mode a high amount of current is required.
5. If all TB50 batteries reach 90% in Quick mode, will they continue to be fully charged to 100%?
In quick mode the batteries are considered fully charged when they reach 90% and then 100% for any batteries that are still inserted.
6. What information will be shown on the Battery Station screen?
The DJI battery station is equipped with a display screen which shows status about battery voltage, current, temperature and remaining charging time. You can see further battery information by pressing the menu like version, SN number of each battery and the voltage of each battery cell.
7. How can I select the different charging modes?
Simply toggle the option switch to choose between Normal and Quick mode, for the silent mode you can enter the menu page when batteries are charged in normal mode.
8. How can I update the battery firmware version with the DJI Battery Station?
The latest version can be updated through DJI Assistant 2 by simply connecting your computer with the firmware update port via USB cable and by clicking on the battery update button the process of updating will start, it is yet to be released.
9. What’s the difference between discharging batteries to 50% and 25%?
50% is suitable for long-term storage for up to three months. 25% meets airline regulatory compliance, which requires charging levels for batteries including check-in luggage not exceeding 30%. For detailed regulations regarding batteries, please refer to local and federal policies.
10. Can I close the lid of the Battery Station when charging or discharging the batteries?
No, because when the process of discharging or charging is enabled the built-in cooling fan of Battery Station will maintain appropriate temperature so if you close the lid the heat dissipation process will fail causing overheating breakdown so it is recommended that that lid is left open.
11. Is the Battery Station waterproof or dustproof?
The DJI battery station is waterproof and dustproof because when the station is completely locked and sealed it achieves IP67 rating of ingress protection.
