DJI presents two Powerstations - they weigh 13 and 7.3 kilograms

DJI is launching two power stations on the market. Not only are they large and heavy, they also enable DJI drone batteries to be charged quickly.

Shenzhen DJI Sciences and Technologies Ltd. is recognised as the global market leader for drones for private and commercial use. It is therefore only natural that the company wants to enter the power station market. And it is doing so with two models called Power 500 and Power 1000, which offer a quick-charging function for certain DJI batteries. They are also designed to fulfil the power requirements of common household appliances.

DJI Power 1000

The Power 1000 measures 44.8 × 23 × 22.8 centimetres and weighs 13 kilograms. Its battery offers a capacity of 1024 watt hours and a maximum output power of 2200 watts.

A full charge of the battery should take 70 minutes, with 80 per cent already available after 50 minutes. You can use more than just a power socket or USB-C cable to charge the Powerstation. Thanks to separately available additional modules and the new proprietary SDC-Lite connection, you can also use a car's cigarette lighter or a solar panel. The battery is designed to last ten years and has a capacity of 80 per cent after 3000 charging cycles. In addition to being used as a mobile power station, you can also use the device as an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

The PD 3.1 fast charging protocol is available for charging devices. In addition to two normal sockets, there are also two USB-C ports. Together they offer up to 140 watts. There are also two USB-A ports with up to 24 watts and two proprietary SDC-Lite outputs, which are used with special cables for charging DJI drone batteries.

DJI is now offering the Power 1000 for 999 euros in its online shop.

DJI Power 500

The slightly more compact Power 500 measures 30.5 × 20.7 × 17.7 centimetres and weighs 7.3 kilograms. Its battery has a capacity of 512 watt hours and a maximum output power of 1000 watts.

As with the larger version, a full charge of the battery should be achieved in 70 minutes, with 80 per cent already available after 50 minutes. The charging options mentioned above are also identical, as is the specified service life (80 per cent capacity after 3000 charging cycles) and the existing UPS function.

The PD 3.0 fast charging protocol is available for charging devices. In addition to two normal sockets, there are also two USB-C ports. Together they offer up to 100 watts. There are also two USB-A ports with up to 24 watts and a proprietary SDC-Lite output, which is used with special cables for charging DJI drone batteries.

DJI is offering the Power 500 immediately for 529 euros in its online shop.

Separately available drone charging cables offer "super-fast charging"

The SDC-Lite connections are a proprietary development from DJI. If you want to charge your Powerstation on a solar panel, you can purchase a corresponding DJI Power Solar Panel Adapter Module (MPPT) for 59 euros, which uses this connection. A module for charging via a cigarette lighter costs 49 euros.

But that's not all, for 19 euros you can get a special cable that uses the connection to charge certain DJI drone batteries extremely quickly. According to the press release, this means around 30 minutes for charging from 10 to 95 per cent. The new technology is called "Power SDC super-fast charge function" and enables up to 230 watts for TB30 Intelligent Flight batteries from the Metric 30 series. For TB51 batteries of the Inspire 3 drones, 200 watts are possible, 150 watts for drone batteries of the Mavic 3 series and 125 watts for batteries of the DJI Air 3.


We will endeavour to add the products to our range as soon as possible. <p

I find my muse in everything. When I don’t, I draw inspiration from daydreaming. After all, if you dream, you don’t sleep through life.
