When I bought the M2P, I opted for the dedicated smart controller.
When out in the field, battery life is a bit of an issue. I have plenty of M2P batteries, but the battery life on the controller is my main issue at the moment.
Can anyone recommend an external battery pack that I can use to keep the controller continually charged? I have tried using my Zendure A6PD but it doesn’t seem to kick out enough power for some reason.
I’d like to know I have around 4-5 hours of time really. Usually I’ll park up somewhere and then walk to the TOAL point. So far this distance is no more than 1km. Usually much closer. Any further and I’ll take my Brompton with me
As long as I am not lugging round a car battery, weight isn’t too big a deal I don’t think…within reason of course.
I keep an AllPowers Portable Generator in my car which will recharge my SC, all my batteries and even run a coolbox in the summer. It’s not meant to be lugged around (it’s the size and weight of a car battery!), but it’s great for charging when maybe driving between locations. AllPowers
I have noticed that sometimes the ‘charging dots’ blink slowly, and sometimes quite quickly. eg if I plug the USB-USBC cable straight into a generic USB socket, the charging dots go quite slowly. If I instead plug that same cable into the 3-pin plug that came with the drone, and put that into a normal plug socket, the blinking is much quicker.
I presume faster blinking means it is charging quicker?
