will phantom 3 pro battery charger work with XSP ?
No, unlike other smart batteries the XSP battery is balanced from the OEM charger for the X-Star. Basically you will be doing a straight charge through the mains. (+ & -) Straight-Charge is when a multi-cell pack is charged without regard of there being multiple cells inside. Straight-Charging multi-cell LiPo packs will create cells that are not Balanced. The charger essentially treats the pack as one cell..charging it by applying the charge into the pack until the first cell becomes full ahead of the other cells until the charger sees that the pack voltage has reached the preset cut-off charge limit. Essentially, leaving the cells at different voltage levels. This situation can produce a shorter output performance during use. The pack voltage drops during use and one cell reaches its discharge level before the others. The system reacts when the total output voltage level is low triggering alerts or early shutdown. This can actually hurt some cells. During a charge the cell reaching the fullest charge first can become fatigued and wear-out over time. Also, the lowest level battery can become over-discharged and develop inclusions over time that create internal resistance worsening performance and shorting cell/pack longevity and lifespan.

Thanks for the info .. my XSP charger cable has crapped out and cannot find a replacement anywhere
