Welcome to the November edition of Charged Monthly, the series where we look at the highlights of the month that just ended and give you a taste of what’s to come.

State of Charged

On October 3, we officially introduced Charged.io to the world, and a month later, we’re happy to call the launch a success. From close to zero, Charged is now cruising along at a small, but significant daily traffic. Thousands of you now follow us on social media. We have a healthy subscriber base on YouTube, and even a few comments across our videos and articles (Don’t be shy! We love to interact.) These are all modest achievements in the grand scheme of things, but that doesn’t make them less exciting.

We’ll admit it. A lot of the buzz surrounding our launch was owed to that sweet Mavic Pro we put up for grabs for one lucky winner. Congrats to Viorica P. from Romania who gets to take home DJI’s new drone!

For everyone else, the next shot at an amazing price is right here. Enter our year-end giveaway at the bottom of this page for a chance at winning a DJI Mavic Pro drone.
