The Fastest Way To Transfer Media From Your DJI Spark To Your iPhone or iPad



In this post we go over the fastest way to get your content off your DJI spark and on to your mobile device mainly your iPhone and iPad. It seems to be very common that many people who fly drones do all their editing and sharing via smart phones or tablets, and why not. Some of today’s mobile devices are faster, easier to use and more powerful than some entry-level laptops or desk tops. Then when you add in the convenience factor, it really is a logical choice. But getting your photos and videos from your DJI spark can be challenging to say the least. Transferring media the traditional way via the Sparks WiFi can be slow and cumbersome. However there is a faster and more convenient way that has additional benefits beside just being faster.

Apple sells a card reader with a lightning connector that works with any idevice with a lightning port. Most Micro SD memory cards that you will use with your DJI Spark comes with a SD adapter (see photos below) that allows you to plug in your Sparks memory card and upload the content via the card reader directly to you Camera Roll on your iPhone or iPad. The transfer rate is very fast, much faster that the traditional WiFi transfer when you connect your Spark to you mobile device. All media is transferred directly to your Camera Roll which makes accessing your content very easy and you can skip the step of having to load up your DJI GO 4 app. With the content transferred you can now edit in iMovie or perhaps a quick edit in Adobe Clips. You still have the option of loading the DJI Spark footage into the DJI video editor if you so desire.

Using this setup can come in extremely handy if you do a lot of camping or excursions and want to easily upload your content for sharing to social media. The other added benefit is you save battery power. Normal you have to turn on the Spark to transfer your footage and if you have a lot of content to move you know very well it’s not hard to burn through and entire battery just to transfer the media. This can be a problem if you are not at home and want to conserve your battery power. Here is our YouTube video demonstrating this procedure.

This method also works with many other drones and devices such as the Mavic Air, Mavic Pro, Phantom 4 series and most GoPro cameras.

Transferring your media via the card reader will automatically save your photos and videos to the Camera Roll.

DJI Sling Bag Review | Best Case For The DJI Goggles



If you have been looking for a storage solution for your DJI Goggles you may want to take a look at the DJI Sling Bag. This sling bag style case is designed to hold the DJI Goggles as well as a Mavic Pro or Mavic Air, it also works well with the DJI Spark. One of the really nice features of the DJI Sling bag is the fact that it is convertible which means if you are only going to be storing the goggles inside, it zips up small so you don’t have all the extra bulk. However if you wish to carry a drone in the pack as well, there is plenty of room. It can hold a total of 3 Mavic Pro batteries plus remote, or 5 Mavic Air batteries and remote.

This bag looks and feels like a premium product, something that I have come to expect from DJI gear. One thing I have not been able to find out online is if the bag is water-resistant. Due to the design of the zippers and material I would have to say it is. Overall a nice case for the DJI Goggles. Watch our review video featuring the DJI Goggles sling bag.

Official DJI Mavic Air Car Charger



When DJI announced and launched the Mavic Air back in January they also listed the Mavic Air car charger as an official accessory. It has been listed as “out of stock” since the Mavic Air launched as it was still in the production stage. For those who have been patiently waiting for the Mavic Air car charger to be released, good news it can finally be purchased as of this week.

The Mavic Air car charger allows you to charge your Mavic Air batteries while out on the go via your vehicles 12 volt accessory port (cigarette lighter). You can charge a single battery, or the car charger can be used in conjunction with the charging hub that came with the “Fly More Combo” kit, allowing you to charge 4 batteries. Keep in mind when using the charging hub it functions the same way as when plugged into a traditional wall socket. It will charge one battery at a time from the most charged to the least.

There are other alternatives for keeping your Mavic Air batteries charged on the on the go such as a power inverter or a portable drone charger. However these can be expensive and heavy to bring with you. Not to mention there are many that only wish to use genuine DJI gear as not to damage the batteries which some cheap 3rd party knock offs have the potential to do. For the price I think the Mavic Air car charger is a nice solution for keeping your Mavic Air batteries charged on the go.
