    Battery charger: which one is the better charger for the Q500+? Looking for something multi charging capabilities as well as faster than the standard charger that came with the Q. Or rate the top 3.

    Gents, how about a non-stock charger that optimizes the Q500 batteries for storage? I tend to be a "fly four batteries out...then stand down for a month" flyer, so multi-charging is less important than storage. (Battery status is one legitimate advantage the DJI-snobs seem to have over us Typhoon flyers.)

    I have been using the Venom ProDuo charger and have been very pleased with it.

    When using a duo port charger to charge 2 batteries at the same time, can 1 common balancing board be used?

    No the charger comes with 2 balance boards, one for each charging channel. You will need to purchase a second EC3 cable as the charger comes with only 1.

    Can't find it. I personally would not take a chance with something designed for another type battery that has been modified tor another type battery,

    Currently..."Out of Stock"

    Personally, I would pass.
    For a more reasonable price you could purchase a charger like the Venom Pro Duo that not only charges two Q batteries at the same time but many others as well.It also has a display with more detailed info about the battery and charging conditions/settings.
    The charger in question only charges.No settings for a "Storage Charge" and no choice on charging and discharging ampacities.

    Here's an example of what I think is a better choice.
    Venom Pro Duo 80W Dual LiPo LiHV NiMH 7-Amp AC/DC Charger
    Research and make your choice.
    Happy hunting,
    Jafo
