Basically going on from my last post where I thought that I needed a new battery for my goggles and was wondering how to go about this without buying a new unit.

  
The batteries on both the goggles and RC sets are going to be spent at some time in the future, up to now I don’t see any provision made to replace them.

  
Are we going to have to buy a complete new unit because of the battery?

I've wondered the same thing myself and the truth is that I just don't know. I do know, however, that the goggles battery lasts a long time, so it's likely to be quite a while (years?) before the battery's ability to hold a charge has diminished to the point where it becomes a real problem.

I also seem to remember reading / hearing (maybe in one of the early reviews?) that the battery is located in the "headband" portion of the goggles, which would make sense for a couple of different reasons: that's where you plug it in for charging, and putting the weight of the battery there would help balance the goggles.

Assuming that's where the battery is located, it should be possible to replace the battery by replacing just the headband portion of the goggles, and while that wouldn't be inexpensive, it would be much less so than replacing the entire unit, especially since the parts that I'd guess are most expensive are in the other ("visor") part of the goggles.

I would think that, if the battery is not user replaceable, you could send the goggles in to DJI and they'd replace the battery for you. Don't think that they'd expect you to buy a whole new set of goggles just because the battery died.

If there is something wrong with the RC or Goggles battery, I suggest sending it back to DJI and we will do our best to help. Fill in some info on our online repair link of our official web and then send it back if needed. Here is the link: https://repair.dji.com/en/SelfRepair/Area
