Hello fellow pilots
Got a new Ryze for Christmas and have not had the best of experiences with charging the batteries.
I’ve tried charging from my laptop, my iPhone charger and also a USB socket I bought from Kmart.
What’s the best way to charge the **** batteries so I can fly?
Have had absolutely six minutes in total of flying time.
 
It sounds like the charging options you have aren't powerful enough for the Tello battery.
Make sure you are using a charger that has a power rating of more then 2 amps, something like an iPad charger. Also don't use a cheap and nasty USB cable, get a decent one.
Alternatively, go on Amazon and search for Tello charger. There's plenty to choose from.

When charging does the led indicate completed or full charge? if not ...

check the charger output @ 5 volts in amps from the charger ... fyi ports on a pc usb version 1.0 and 2.0 output is 500ma ... version 3.0 is 900 ma ... both are weak.

I charge with a 5vdc @ 2 amp usb source ... all is fine.
