DJI drone battery station

DJI has announced the introduction of the DJI Battery Station, designed for professionals seeking advanced battery management to handle any drone video shooting scenario. Built specifically for the Intelligent Battery TB50, the new Battery Station is an all-in-one solution for battery charging, storage, and transportation for professional film crews and industry workers, and is compatible with DJI drones including the Ronin 2, Inspire 2 and M200 series.

The Battery Station can store up to 12 TB50 Intelligent Batteries at once and charge up to 8 simultaneously for efficient and comprehensive battery management. Multiple charging ports also allow users to charge other devices including selective remote controllers, WB37 Intelligent Batteries, and even mobile devices.

The station is equipped with an LCD screen, where the batteries’ power level, charging voltage, remaining time, temporature and firmware version will be displayed to ensure a safe flight, before operation. A built-in cooling fan helps dissipate heat while charging and an overheating detection monitor provides an additional level of safety.

Other intelligent features of the DJI Battery Station include three charging modes — Normal, Quick and Silent — to provide ideal power management for every shooting scenario. In Normal Mode, 8 TB50 Intelligent Batteries can be charged simultaneously, while in Quick Mode 4 TB50 Intelligent Batteries with the highest battery level in the same group will be charged to 90% in 35 minutes. In Silent mode, charging speed is lowered for a quieter process on noise sensitive film sets.

To ensure reliable charging and storing of all batteries, the Battery Station is made of a plastic that meets USA UL 94 V-O flammability standards, reducing the risks that may arise in extreme environments. The station also offers Discharge mode, which brings batteries to 25% for transportation and 50% for storage.
