Charging your Mavic 2 pro batteries

This section shall look at all the options for charging the DJI Mavic 2 Pro batteries. You can charge the batteries of the drone by using the following charger options:

  • Mavic 2 charging hub
  • Mavic 2 charger
  • Mavic 2 car charger
  • Mavic 2 battery to power bank adapter

Mavic 2 charging hub

This is the most commonly used option for charging the batteries of the Mavic 2 Pro. You can find many charging hubs that are available in the market for these batteries. The best option is to go with the DJI Mavic intelligent charging hub(4-in-1). With the help of this charging hub, you can charge four batteries one by one. It is a perfect option to consider if you have time in your hand. This is also a very affordable option costing around 40$.

You can also buy a Rapid charger from FSlabs, with which you can charge three batteries at once. This charger is a bit costlier than the DJI charger, but it saves a lot of time for professionals and photographers.

Standard in-box Mavic 2 charger

This is also the standard option most people use. The DJI Mavic 2 Pro charger comes along with the drone in the box. This is the standard charger that DJI offers to its customers for charging the drone batteries.

It usually takes are 60-80 minutes for a standard battery to charge using this charger, and it is the safest option.

This charger has the downside of charging only one battery at a time. If you are flying the drone as a hobby, this is the most favorable option. If you are a professional trying to take quality images and videos with the drone, then the suitable option would be to go with the charging hub.


How do I know my drone battery is fully charged?

The design of the Mavic 2 Pro battery is similar to the older versions. However, the LED indicator is given around the power button this time. When you plug-in the battery for charging, the LED lights will start moving in a circular direction. Once the battery is full, the circle is complete with the light.

That is the indication you have to follow while charging the batteries. Be careful because sometimes overcharging the batteries will result in faulty or damaged batteries.

You can check the status of the drone’s battery level by tapping on the power button once.


Car Charger for the DJI Mavic 2 Pro

Many people want to fly the drone in their favorite location or want to fly while they are on the move. So the best way to do so is to have a Mavic 2 Pro car charger. You can charge the other batteries while you are already flying the drone on one of the batteries.

There are multiple options for buying a car charger for Mavic 2 Pro. The best option is to consider the official DJI Mavic 2 Pro car charger. This doesn’t come with the box, but you have to buy it separately. One thing you have to look out for while buying this charger is the price. This charger costs more than the unofficial options available in the market. This is available in the market at 89$.

If you don’t want to buy the charger from the official company, then the best option to consider is the Philonext car charger. This charger has excellent reviews on Amazon and comes at an affordable price of 39$.

DJI Mavic 2 Pro Power Bank Adapter

Although this cannot be considered a charging option for the batteries, you can still manage to charge the batteries enough for an outdoor shoot with power banks. This option is beneficial when you are mobile while flying the drone.

You can plug in the phone on one side and the drone battery on the other side for charging the batter. 20% charging on mobile devices is more than sufficient to charge a single standard battery of DJI Mavic 2 Pro.

DJI Mavic 2 Powerbank adapter is available at affordable prices in the market. Again this option is only valid if you are flying the drone as a hobby. If you plan to fly it professionally, then the best option would be to go with the professional car charger.


How do I charge my drone battery without a charger?

The best option for charging the battery without a charger is the power bank. You can plug in the power bank to your mobile device, and the drone battery will automatically charge. This option is a viable option only when there is no power supply available. If there is a power supply available, then it is better to go with standard charger options.
