What do you do/use to recharge your batteries out in the field?

So I don't want to invest in a lot of batteries and thought I would just look for a car charger adapter for the charging unit since it will do three batteries. I was thinking I could get away with 4 batteries. 2 to fly with while 2 are charging after I fly them

Any thoughts on a better method?

Thanks

Another option would be to use a powerbank -- like the Anker PowerCore 5000. The Spark battery has a capacity of 1480 mAh, so a 5000 mAh powerbank would be able to recharge a battery 3 times. For a few bucks more, the Anker PowerCore 10000 would be able to recharge a battery 6 times.

Msinger. Have you tried it and got good results? Thanks for the idea

How do you connect from the power core to the battery?

Not yet. I'm still waiting for my Spark to arrive.

I will definitely check that out....I am at Lowes or Home Depot every weekend. Almost as bad as going to hobby shops all the time.

I got the xiaomi mi2 power bank. 20,000 size so has plenty to charge and at the new QC3 rate too.

We've used the Goal Zero Yeti's for many years. Can highly recommend.

I've been using a 75w inverter that way I can charge numerous batteries ( I have 4 so it's helpful). I open the hatch setup everything then fly for most if the day when time allows.

At the time this thread was created, the Charging Station wasn’t out. I use it and love it. Can charge 3 batteries and your phone in a small compact unit while on the go. If I need to recharge the Charging Station out in the field, I could probably use my Goal Zero Sherpa 100.
