Upgrade the Charger For Your Yuneec Typhoon Q500

Posted by Kerry 01/14/2016 0 Comment(s) News,

As much as we like the Yuneec Typhoon Q500 4K, the one thing that could stand to be improved is the charger. While the stock charger does the job, it is rather slow with up to a two hour charge time. If you only have one or two batteries, this might not be a big deal, but when you have 3, 4, or more, that adds up to a lot of time spent charging batteries.

Fortunately, we have several solutions to help reduce your charging times and keep you up and flying faster. With our lineup of chargers from HiTec, you can select a charger that best suites your needs with chargers that can do 1, 2, and even up to 4 batteries at a time!
