Hi.
New Battery that i have just bought, not the same as my other 3 x Batteries.
Genuine DJI Battery??
This was bought from a seller in France.
Came with free onions,garlic and stinky cheese...
Is it, or is isnt it Genuine DJI Battery???

Someone made a post on this same topic not too long ago. Good to know if I get a new battery this holiday season that if it isn't the same as the one I have that it is still genuine.

You would think DJI would put their logo on it. I know I'd prefer not to fly with a 3rd party battery. None of my 4 batteries say DJI on them anywhere though, and they all came with the (2) aircraft.

Can I have some wine? Not fond of the stinky cheese though.

From what i have seen since posting, i think it is a genuine battery.
Very different from my other 3 batteries tho.

I still want to buy three more intelligent flight battery packs for my Phantom 3 Pro'. The Nanuk 945 case calls for them!!
Would hope to find 'em, on a crazy low down sale price, perhaps after Boxing Day. ;-$

That will be swell. Ha

The third party batteries I have seen on line are labelled "Phantom Compatible......." or similar.

Is that battery compatibility still current?
We all know that DJI loves proprietary part and pieces, & did a firmware addition, that negates counterfeit battery use. ;-)

I'd forgotten that, that info' I provided was from 'old memories' ( OK six months ago )
Unlikely that any third party will now work (unless they're really clever)

I can't answer that important question for you. ;-)

Ah, But I would be very leery of anything substandard...

The battery is almost the single most important component in the flight hardware list, barring the human brain. And in some cases the battery wins, hence the expression 'Intelligent Flight Battery'

So perhaps we need a "Drone Flight For Dummies" manual? Haha

Not reflecting you or anyone in particular. But all new pilots specifically. ;-)

So the statement "Dummy Up!" would finally have a real definitive meaning. Chuckles

Its not worth saving a few £/$/€  on a none DJI battery,to have a power issue that voids your warranty when it fails mid flight.

From the P3 on, a non DJI battery will not work in the aircraft.
It will give errors stating it's not a DJI battery and you cannot fly.

Those are already in numbers too large to define numerically. Ha

We strongly suggest, RTFM!! But of course people think they only need to charge a flight battery and fly... ;-)
Here's an intersting video made for drone pilot dummies. Good thing we can't understand the language, or we'd be wiser for it. Ha.
