We met up with Andrew St Pierre from Autel Robotics to take a look at the new LiveDeck and MultiCharger that they brought to CES 2019. Both devices would be very helpful, especially for first responders. However, both products are currently still in development and no official pricing or release date has been made public as of yet. Check out the video below for more information on the Autel Robotics LiveDeck and MultiCharger.

The Autel LiveDeck connects to your Evo drone just like your controller does. It has a built-in battery that lasts for about four hours or you can connect it directly to a power source. Andrew told us that the LiveDeck is currently in development so he couldn’t provide us with a price or release date yet.

The MultiCharger for the Evo batteries. This charger allows you to charge up to four batteries at a time. One battery will be charged . up to 80% before the device turns to the next battery. When all connected batteries are charged up to 80% the MultiCharger will trickle power to each battery to top them off and to keep them fully charged. You can use your current Evo charger to connect to the new MultiCharger.
The Autel Robotics Multicharger is in development as well but they are very close to releasing it according to Andrew. No price or an official date on this one either, unfortunately.
