From what I’ve seen DJI products are not new to technical difficulties. Mavic Air 2 Charging hub is definitely not an exception to this trend.
So what do you do to fix mavic air 2 charging hub problems?
There is a solution that works for almost every case. Just put the battery out of hibernation mode. You can do that by charging it first with the stock DJI charger. Voila! Your charging hub issues should be gone, IF the battery or the charger is not DoA. The article has further details on that.
Well, Let’s dive right into the details of the problems.
Phase 1: Identifying the Reasons
Mavic users are not new to charging dock issues and I am not new to solving them. Let’s first talk about the reasons for the most commonly faced issues.
Mavic Air 2 Charging Hub Only Charging One Battery
The Mavic Air 2 charging hub may be infamous for many problems. This, however, is not one of them. I say that because this is how the hub functions.
It charges the batteries one by one. So, for the users I’m saying this once and for all, this is not an issue.
Mavic Air 2 Charging Hub Red Light Constant
Well, this is an issue like the Mavic Pro yellow flashing. If there’s a constant red light on your charging hub, the possibilities are two-
- The battery is DOA. DOA means Dead On Arrival. This unfortunately means there is no cure for this problem. All you can do is send it for warranty.
- The other possibility is that the battery is in hibernation. This, unlike the other problem, is fixable.
Mavic Air 2 Charging Hub Not Working At All:
This is also a major issue that may put a stop to your drone shenanigans. There are four possible reasons why it may be happening-
- Your charging hub may be faulty. You will have to send it back for warranty in that case.
- Your batteries may already be completely charged. In that case you won’t see any light come on in the hub.
- Your battery may be in hibernation if it is new. DJI ships their batteries in hibernation mode.
- If nothing else hinted to your issue, then your batteries may need to be replaced. Either that, or returned for warranty.
Phase 2: Doing DJIs Work For You
Well, DJI is well known for its good drones technology and its bad service. I will do their job for you and tell you the solution to the charging dock issues.
The Charging Dock Charging Only One Battery:
As I’ve mentioned before, the charging dock charging only one battery isn’t a problem at all. It is a feature.
The dock chooses to charge the more charged battery and by that order. So it will charge one by one. However, if you want to charge more batteries at once, there is a way to do that.
Charge one battery with the dock and the other one plugged into your drone. At least you’ll charge two batteries at once that way.
The Constant Red Light Of The Charging Hub:
Red light on the charging hub means the battery is not charging due to an error. Well I will attempt to solve it reason wise.
Battery DoA: Test your batteries one by one to see which battery is the faulty one. Then once you have the dead battery, send it back for a new one to DJI.
Some patience and luck will get your warranty to be covered by the notorious DJI.
Battery On Hibernation: DJI usually ships their batteries in the hibernation mode. That is also the reason sometimes. By sometimes I mean almost all of the charging hub issues are related to this.
To fix this issue, Just put your battery in the stock DJI charger. You should keep it there till the red light on the battery blinks twice. Now it should work on the charging hub
Mavic Air 2 Charging Hub Not Working At All:
This issue is the most obvious yet the most annoying unlike the Mavic air 2 battery blinking issue. There is no indication that your charging hub is working at all. The solution to this is pretty simple just like fixing DJI Go issues.
Charging Hub DoA: Check the charging hub with multiple batteries. That way you can be sure that it is actually a problem with the hub.
Well in this case, the only option you have is to send it back to DJI. You can only hope for a refund or a new one.
Battery Already Charged: If the battery is already charged then that means, there wasn’t a problem anywhere really.
You can check the mavic air 2 battery error by just plugging it in your drone. See if it flies, if it does then voila! All good. In this case, you don’t really need to do anything aside from trusting your stuff a little.
Battery on Hibernation: Like I said, this is a common reason for many charging hub issues. I’ve already mentioned the fix for this. Just use the stock DJI charger to put it out of its hibernation.
That covered the ins and outs of the mavic air 2 charging dock issues. But if all these troubleshooting don’t cover your issues there might be an issue with your charging hub.
In that case, get yourself a new one from amazon.
