But beware, the company has no particular high score on Trustpilot. Therefore, you should pay with Paypal if ...............  
https://dk.trustpilot.com/review/batteryupgrade.dk

The Danish version of the page is as far as I can see illegal in Denmark as they do not give a physical address of the company.

It is apparently an international company, probably driven by some hard working enterprising Chinese people.

A comfort, though, they provide 12 months warranty on their DJI batteries. Hope it is from the day you receive your battery.   

I would not advise or discadvice to buying from the site.

Regards Leif.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. We always recommend purchasing the battery to our DJI Official Store or any online store that affiliated with DJI. This is to make sure that we can provide you the original and good quality of batteries. At the same time, we can utilize the warranty that covered by your part item. https://store.dji.com/?site=brandsite&from=footer

This seems like a good deal on a new OEM P3 battery... $58 plus $10 shipping to USA if you use code PICKDADSGIFT

Only good for two more hours though...

Lets hear if you get what you buy and if it is genuine DJI batteries.
That alone that the listed normal prize is 2/3 of the prize everywhere else would make me worry but also that the page is in lack of the Danish E-trade (E-Handel) certification.

The Dansih domain was first registered 10 years ago, the registrant information from dk-hostmaster match the contact information on the page but i am unable to see if there has been any changes of owner info.
It could be valid but i would not put my money there right away.

Yes, I can see their physical address in Holland, so suppose the page as a "Danish store" is fake.

I have never encountered the company before even though I have bought many batteries of different kinds around in Europe.

Looked for the price of a battery for my camera. But they want 2 times more than the cheapest price I can receive a battery purchased on eBay by a European dealer. It is apparently only with batteries for drones the company has low prices.

And no, I do not need a battery more for my Phantom 4 Advance in addition to the two I already have. But if I was missing some day I would then strongly consider ...........

Maybe maybe not. But we also have some other rules here in Europe for trade than you has in North America.

Hopeing for you that a good night's restful sleep has done good.

I must say, so far it look alright to me, the sites are also hosted from the Netherlands, the .com was first registered in 2005 and has just been renewed for the next year.

The last test to do would be writing them a mail and inspect in the headers from where it get answered if it does, but i think you have found a EU site with some nice prizes, perhaps i'll test it out when i see what i get back. Is just working on packing down my pure pro for a new visit to the Netherlands.

A little update on this, they do operate from the Netherlands, the reply i got is a little cryptic but do think they answer that those batteries are not DJI genuine but let me hear how you interpret the below answer.

Question asked:

"Hello

On the DJI forum we're having a talk of the batteries for the DJI Phantom 4 series you sell.
I have a Phantom 4 Pro myself and would be interested in buying two more batteries for this within short time but one thing i find unclear when looking on your information, is the batteries genuine DJI batteries or a copy product?
If genuine, are they all and would it state in the information if otherwise?

Thanks in advance

Best regards
"

Yes, it looks like a response from a person who does not have the least idea of what he or she answers.  

As far as I can see, the 5870 mAh battery on the image is a real DJI (you can click the image and see a few more). But they can, of course, have found those pictures online.

Another little fun thing is that the company writes it's a LiPo battery on there homepage while DJI writes on their battery pack it's a Li-ion !!!  And on the image there is written Li-Ion rechargeable battery to.  

But it is soon to be so exciting we almost have to order a genuine DJI battery pack from the company and see what happens.   

Regards Leif.

She, but guess that makes no difference.
Those batteries are called LiPo everywhere even in the manuals and specs, both for AC and RC batts 4s vs 2s, if you turn it around you should notice it say the more correct name: Lithium Ion Polymer, so that part i would not wonder, just happy we don't have to call them LiIoPo.

When my Phantom return and hopefully is found functional i think i'll give it a try. Won't do it now in case i would need to make use of the 14 days return policy and my Phantom seem to still be in Holbaek where it was signed in for UPS shipment Thursday evening. I am afraid it is going to take quite a while again.

I don't read their reply as cryptic.  They say "replacement batteries" which I believe indicates they are not genuine, but same.  Maybe like a generic drug versus a brand name.
Personally I would stick with the genuine.

As an EU based seller - they would have to stay clear of saying Genuine or copy etc. The statement 'replacement battery' gets them past that rule,

Second as an EU seller - they must sell Merchantable Quality and it must be fit for purpose. That means if it genuinely does not work - they are duty bound in EU to refund total or replace with working items.

Simple really ...

You don't read it as cryptic but still say "indicates", that is exactly what makes it a cryptic answer that can be interpreted differently. When you say that using the statement "replacement batteries" it would not be genuine, then let me ask, if my battery dies and i buy a new one from the DJI store, what would that be if not a "replacement battery"?

"Personally I would stick with the genuine."
So would i but i see no reason to pay too much if i can get one cheaper somewhere else and with the cost of those batteries someone in the chain is making easy money. A smart seller would lower the prize earning a little less pr item but sell a lot more, this could be such a seller, we can't know for sure without trying and then return it if we're being fooled.
First things to do in order to not being totally fooled i think has been done during the previous posts and i would have no doubt i will receive a battery if ordering one, i just don't know who has produced it yet.

Are you saying they would not be allowed to state if produced/delivered from DJI?
If it really is so, something is wrong with the rules!

Sorry are we on same page ?

Genuine or Approved items for a brand can be stated as such.

If the item is not genuine or approved by the Brand intended for - then EU rules are strict about wording.

Dunno why you alter the intent to  ''if produced/delivered from DJI'' .... because from the quote earlier - its obvious they are supplying non genuine and staying within EU rules by saying Replacement Item.

The word Replacement as another rightly says - is wide ranging and can mean a genuine replacement ... or a non genuine replacement.

The fact is that IF the battery does not work and bought from an EU seller who says it is a battery for a P3, P4 or whatever model - then EU says 'Refund or Working item' if bought as quoted for.

Yes i think so, but the statement "they would have to stay clear of saying Genuine or copy etc." made it sound like they were not allowed to state that they were genuine if so.

Thank you for clearing out what you meant.

Well, not disagreeing with your overall statement, but you did take my quote out of context with your neat little spin on it.  I said "I believe it indicates", you left out the "I believe" that etc..
Let us know how they work out, I can change my mind.

Now I study Phantom 4 batteries prices seriously. Looking at the European dBay seller's offer, they can match the price of BatteryUpgrade.com with batteries they promise are original:  https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html? ... &rt=nc&LH_PrefLoc=5  
Unfortunately, it seems that it is most the 5350 mAh version there is sold for human money.
