Parrot has partnered with Colorado Drone Chargers for a new high-speed drone charging solution to go alongside its ANAFI USA’s long flight time.
The ANAFI USA boasts an impressive flight-time-to-weight ratio. The new faster and more flexible charging system will mean even less downtime for the UAS.
Parrot said the revolutionary charging system for the ANAFI USA batteries allows professionals to simultaneously charge four Parrot ANAFI USA 3400mAh flight batteries in the field and in less time than a standard charging system.
The new CDC ANAFI USA PRCS Elite will recharge four batteries from a 20% charge level to a full charge in approximately 60 minutes for all the four batteries.
This should mean more time in the air, with fewer batteries to charge and to carry into the field.
Jerome Bouvard, director of strategic partnerships at Parrot, said: “Our mission is to design and build the best UAV solutions for professionals, and also to partner with industry leaders to create an ecosystem of application, services, and hardware accessories for our platform.
“The partnership with CDC brings tremendous value for our ANAFI USA platform, and this new charging system is the perfect add-on for our most demanding professional users.”
Meanwhile, Chris Roberts, VP & chief sales and marketing officer, added: “At Parrot we have used our vast proven experience developing drones since 2010, with 4.5 million shipped, to bring the market the class leading extremely capable ANAFI USA, we have placed an extreme focus on battery performance and weight, to have the best flight time to weight ratio ensuring you can not only have a reliable flight time of +30 minutes but also easily deploy and carry the system anywhere to achieve a professional mission, of course having a great flight time with a heavy weight is not realistic for real professional users.
“The CDC charging system complements and takes even further the capabilities of always being mission ready and professionally deployable for high frequency constant professional usage.”
