DJI has just released a portable charging station for their smallest drone to date, DJI Spark. This charging station is small, portable, and one might think it’s the best thing they could ever have as a drone companion, but is it?
A different company that goes by the name of “Smatree” offered this type of product long time ago. Their charging station looks great, feels great, but will the DJI charging station be the “killer” of Smatree station?
Let’s find out!
MEET THE CONTESTANTS
DJI Spark Portable Charging Station
Finally DJI managed to deliver a nice charging hub for the Spark.
Highly transportable drone charger can fit 2 batteries PLUS the drone itself. Everything can fit inside!
First it will charge the one attached to the drone, then it will charge the others. We will go through all the specs in the comparison chart below.
It is easy to carry, has a lot of juice, and has some really awesome tricks up its sleeve.
But is it actually better compared to the DJI’s charging station?
There are recent reports about Smatree chargers catching fire. The producer claims these reports as fake and removed the charger from Amazon.com. The product is still available in other shops but we advise to either buy the DJI charging station or wait will the situation about the safety performance is cleared.

DJI vs. Smatree
So there you go.
If you look at all specs, You will see that Smatree is far more superior than the DJI’s new charging station. For many of you this will be the one you should go for.
But let’s do a quick recap just in case:
Both can charge 3 batteries at the same time, but Smatree has the capacity to charge 6 batteries (2x 3 batteries).
DJI station needs 2h 30min to charge 3 batteries (one after the other), but Smatree does that in 40 minutes ONLY! (all 3 simultaneously!)
So Smatree can give you 6 full charges in 1h 20 mins. Isn’t that awesome?!
However the DJI charger can be used as a Spark docking station. So you can easily carry the drone, its battery +2 extra batteries, while they charge.
On Smatree there is no place for a drone, but the HUGE capacity, the 40min/3batteries charge time and much more affordable price tag does make up for this!
Otherwise, if you are looking tor a good charging station that has a place for your beloved Spark as well…You will not make a mistake with the DJI one.
