DJI Spark Portable Charging Station Review

Published

Today we are taking a closer look at the Spark Portable Charging Station from DJI. This portable charger first appeared during the Spark launch event earlier this spring when on display. However, since the Spark launch, there has been not a single hint of this portable power bank charger until now. DJI finally unveiled it a few weeks ago with a statement that it will begin shipping in 10 days.  I ordered it right away and it arrived on my doorstep a few days ago. Watch our YouTube Video Review.

The unit can be purchased in two different variations. You can buy just the standalone charger or you can purchase it as a kit that comes with 2 spare DJI Spark batteries.

The portable charger can charge 3 spark batteries (including one mounted on the aircraft) traditionally by plugging the unit into a wall or use its built-in 5000 mAh power bank to charge away from home while on the go. When you plug the Spark portable charging station into a wall socket it will assess the batteries that are mounted inside. It will start charging the aircraft first and then the two side batteries one at a time and from fullest to lowest. While the portable charger is charging the Spark batteries it will also charge its internal power bank.

In my testing, I found that when charging 3 batteries while plugged into the wall it took about 2 hours (all batteries were between 15-18%). When charging using the built-in power bank I achieved similar results, a full charge took approximately 2 hours and 5 minutes.

The power cable that is included with the spark portable charger is the exact same charger that is included with the DJI Spark Fly More Combo so that is a nice bonus, you can use one charging cord for both chargers. You can purchase a nice little case for the “Spark Portable Charging Station” however I found that the case that comes with the fly more combo will hold the portable charger as well, now it’s a little snug but it does work.

All in all a very nice charging solution for your DJI Spark. The only negative comment I really have to make about the spark portable charging station is the arm at the top that holds in the aircraft scratches very easily. Even dusting it with a microfiber cloth left many marks. I wish it had been made of the same material as the body.

I really wish I had this unit this past summer, would have come in really handy. I would personally recommend this charger…a nice solid product from DJI.
