That's a good question. There is no clear answer though as everyone does things a little differently.
I buy as many batteries per plane as I can afford. I charge several batteries for each plane I take with me to the field and do no field charging at all.
That works for me cause I usually don't have long periods of time in which to fly.
For example. I have 4 eflite 4 port chargers for the batteries for the champ and um t-28. Ill take 16 charged batteries with me to the field to fly those two planes along with 4 for the mosquito. They charge quick and ill have lots of flying time.
For the larger planes ill bring 3 batteries to the field per plane I'm flying.
That's what works for me. You may find something that works for you that is drastically different.
