The Skydio 2 batteries charge directly through the Skydio 2’s USB-C port. To charge:

  • Attach a battery to the Skydio 2, then use the included power adapter and USB-C cable to power the Skydio 2 via the USB-C port.
  • When attached to power, the LED light on the battery will begin to flash at its current charge level. The Skydio 2’s LED indicator lights will also turn on.
  • When the battery is fully charged, its LED lights will stay solid for one minute and then turn off. You can check the charge status of the battery by pressing the battery button once. A fully charged battery will be indicated by a solid blue bar.
  • Charging time from a fully discharged state is roughly 1 hour.
  • Skydio 2 has an average flight time of 23 minutes on a single fully charged battery.

In the near future, Skydio will be offering a charging dock that is capable of simultaneously* charging two batteries.

 

*Depends on wattage and battery state.
