Charger Needed

Hi all,

I just bought a Tello from the UAE, when I got home to SA I realized it did not have a charger.
Package was sealed and only contained the drone, a battery and the spare propellers.

Where can I get a charger in SA or where would be the best place to buy online that ships to SA.

Thanks!

I don't know, but it should be written on the charger itself. In unreadably tiny print, usually :/ Look for something like "OUTPUT: 5V 1.5A" -- if "A" is 1.5 or more, should be OK.

Even if the output is less than 1.5A it will still work however the charge time will be longer.

That charger is only one-half amp (500 milli-amps) and will be very slow.

Regarding your question about using a Samsung charger, I've used one and it worked just fine. It likely has 1.5 or 2 amps, which is appropriate.
Awesome, thanks.

The Tello battery is a 1100 mA battery. That charger will work but the charging time will be ~ 2.5 hours.

Thanks for everyone’s replies. It’s annoying that there is no charger included.
