Introduction

The T30/T10 Intelligent Battery Station can connect with up to two batteries. While charging, the battery station monitors the status of the batteries and can automatically adjust the charging current if required. The battery station continues to charge even if the ventilation holes are blocked. Users can check the battery charging status LEDs and the warning indicator on the operation panel of the battery station to confirm if there are any errors. The battery station can be connected to a remote controller using a USB-C cable and users can launch the DJI MG or DJI AGRASTM app to check more detailed information regarding any errors. Additionally, the battery station has the following functions: overcurrent protection, overcharging protection, under-voltage protection, overheating protection, and status display.

The general descriptions in this user guide apply to both the T30 Intelligent Battery Station and T10 Intelligent Battery Station. The illustrations in this user guide may vary from the actual product. The T30 Intelligent Battery Station is used as an example below.

Mounting the Battery Station

If the CPX503-3000 switching power supply has not been mounted to the battery station before leaving the factory, follow the instructions below to mount.

  1. Loosen the screws and remove the front panel.
  2. Insert the CPX503-3000 switching power supply into the battery station as shown below. The T30 Intelligent Battery Station has two CPX503-3000 switching power supplies while the T10 Intelligent Battery Station has one.
  3. Attach the panel and secure using the screws.

Activation

The battery station requires activation before using for the first time. If the warning indicator is solid  green, it means the battery station has not been activated. Follow the steps below to activate the battery station:

Method 1: Using the DJI MG App or DJI Agras App

  1. Connect the battery station to a power outlet.
  2. Connect the battery station to the remote controller using a USB-C cable.
  3. Press the power button to power on the battery station.
  4. Run the app and follow the prompts to finish activation.

Method 2: Using DJI Assistant 2 for MG

  1. Connect the battery station to a power outlet.
  2. Connect the battery station to the PC using a USB-C cable.
  3. Visit www.dji.com to download DJI Assistant 2 for MG. Install and run the software.
  4. Press the power button to power on the battery station.
  5. Use your DJI account to log in and click “Battery Station / Inverter Generator” and follow the prompts to finish activation.

Make sure the PC or smart device is connected to the internet during activation.

Using the Battery Station

Up to two batteries can be connected to the T30/T10 Intelligent Battery Station. Follow the instructions below to use the battery station.

  1. Connect the battery station to a power outlet.
    • When using the T30 Intelligent Battery Station, each AC power cable must be connected to a separate AC power outlet or power strip with a rated current of more than 16 A.
    • Only use one AC power cable when using the T30 Intelligent Battery Station indoors. This will reduce the maximum power output by half.

  2. Connect the battery to the battery station.
    Make sure to place the charging battery on the same side that the charging cable is fixed to the battery station.
  3. Make sure all cables are correctly connected and press the power button on the operation panel of the battery station. The two LEDs and the warning indicator will flash simultaneously. After powering on, the only lights remaining will be the charging status LEDs, which represent the batteries currently connected. This indicates that self-diagnosis is complete and the device is working normally. For more information about how to check if there are any errors during self-diagnosis, refer to the LEDs and Warning Indicator Description. Alternatively, connect the battery station to a remote controller and launch the DJI MG or DJI Agras app for more detailed information about the errors.
  4. If no errors are detected during self-diagnosis, the battery station will begin to charge the batteries. If two batteries are connected simultaneously, the battery station will charge them in order of their power level, starting from highest to lowest.
  • Before use, make sure there are no obvious defects on the battery station or batteries (e.g., jams, breakages, or short circuits).
  • DO NOT power the battery station on unless the batteries are correctly connected.
  • The battery station will automatically adjust the charging current based on the condition of the batteries being charged. For example, if the battery temperature is below 15° C (59° F), the charging current will be limited and the charging time will be longer. The charging time depends on the battery model and battery temperature. The lower the battery temperature, the longer the charging time will be. The charging temperature range varies depending on the battery model. Refer to the user guide of the battery to check the charging temperature range.

LEDs and Warning Indicator Description

During charging, the status LED will blink when the corresponding charging battery is experiencing an abnormality due to the cable being disconnected, a high or low temperature, overvoltage, or overcurrent. Once charging is complete, the status LED will be solid green. The battery can be disconnected from the battery station.
