Best SD Card For Mavic Air 2 that is able to handle bandwidth 120 Mbps generated by 4K 60FPS. Recording video requires a constant minimum write speed to prevent the footage from stuttering, learn how to pick the right one:

Hello there Henrik Olsen. Thank you for creating this informative video on what is the best SD card for the DJI Mavic Air 2. In addition to this I will post the list of recommended SD cards for the DJI Mavic Air 2 for additional reference. Again great work and thank you for your valued support.

I don't understand.  I dont think any of those recommended cards write at 120mb/s.  READ speeds are well up there but I thought the video was explaining we need 120mb/s write speeds?

Any U3 micro sd should suffice. I am currently using a U1 sandisk microsd and while it shows a "slow sd card warning"message I am still able to record 4k 60fps video just fine.
Also, if microsd performance/reliability is on par with SSD statistics, I would not trust SanDisk. Samsung has always been well-known in the computer enthusiast community to be one of the best for performance and reliability. While Sandisk is not BAD, you can certainly do better with Samsung I believe.

The OP's video states that 120 MB/sec write is required for Mavic Air 2, yet several of the cards DJI lists as compatible are UHS I cards stating write speeds of 90 MB/sec. Is Mavic Air 2 compatible with UHS II cards, and is there any benefit to using them?

Do not confuse MB/s with Mb/s. MB is mega-bytes, while Mb is mega-bits. The OP is quoting 120 mega-bits per seond. The value of 120 Mega-bytes per second is 960 Mega-bits per second.

Thanks... This is the cards I bought in case anyone needs one quick as they're available locally at Walmart stores:

The write speed is 90 MB/sec which is plenty fast!

I'm interested to know how important the capacity of the SD card is. If I run out to the field and only think to bring just one sd card, would 64 GB be sufficient to record three batteries worth of filming? I guess what I'm asking is at its highest capabilities, how large are the files is the Mavic Air 2 producing to the capacitance of the SD? With my Mavic Mini, even filing at it's highest 2.7 K I never had a problem with a 128 GB card.

10 minutes equals about 7.6 GB....three batteries at say 20 minutes per battery equals 60 minutes equals 45.6 GB.  You also have the internal storage that gives you another 10+ minutes of storage.  Looks like you need another battery!!!
