DJI launched a few new accessories for the DJI Spark (still priced at $399!), our favorite mini-drone. Last week they introduced the Spark Portable Power Charging Station for USD $89, which is a battery-powered charger for up to three Spark batteries. The charger itself can be fully charged in 1 hour and 35 minutes and can in turn charge up to three Spark batteries in 2.5 hours with its own 5000 mAh battery.

This week DJI introduces the Spark Portable Power Pack for USD $139 but the DJI website is unclear about what you will be getting when you buy this item.

Update: DJI updated their website on 11/30. The Spark Portable Power Pack does include two batteries.

What is included in the Spark Portable Power Pack?

How is the Power Pack different from the Charging Station? Well, that is a good question.

The DJI website is really confusing as it seems that all the text describing the Power Pack is copied directly from the Charging Station.

Even when you go to the section that tells you the content of the box the website says:

  • Portable Charging Station × 1
  • Charger × 1
  • Power Cable × 1
  • Spark Intelligent Flight Battery × 2

This is the exact same content as the Charging Station. Meanwhile, the price of the Power Pack (USD $139) is considerably higher than the Power Station (USD $89). So what gives?

Based on the photos it seems that the Spark Portable Power Pack will include two additional Spark Intelligent Flight Batteries, priced at USD 49 each. If this is correct, the Power Pack is actually quite a good deal as it represents a USD $48 discount versus buying all the components individually. You basically get one battery for free.

Lastly, DJI also introduced the Spark Portable Charging Station Bag for USD $19.

Now you would think that DJI would include this in the Power Pack but again based on the photos of the Power Pack that does not seem to be the case.

It would have made for a nice pack though if the bag was included. ;-)
