    A necessary evil!

    It's expensive but worth the cost. Your first flights will go by fast as you learn, adjust, and perfect your skills so a 2nd battery makes the flight/trip worth it. Once you get more flight time and practice in it's still worth having a 2nd battery for twice as much fun or footage if you're recording. I purchased this as a 2nd battery to my kit. I was quite disappointed to learn that it was over 2 1/2 years old fresh off the shelf, I hope this doesn't bite me in the butt down the road! I knocked off a star because I've never gotten over 18 minutes of flight time and if I were to actually time it, I'm sure it would be closer to 15 and even less if you tend to stay in sport mode. Overall it works and seems to be on par performance wise with my <6 months old battery that came with the kit. Charging seems to be about 1hr 15mins and I also hate the fact it looses a fair amount to charge in as little as a week, very annoying when you go to fly and your flight time is down to 10 mins!!! Either way, stop reading and go get one!

    Battery life

    First thing, the battery life could be better. It's advertised as having a 20 minute life expectancy. It's either always 17 minutes or 18 minutes, after charging fully. For the price, it could be better. I would be happily satisfied with 25 - 30 minute flight times instead of 17 minute flight times. Even at 17 minutes the Karma returns to home at around 4 minutes. I could deduct those 4 minutes off of the 17 minutes and review a whole new flight life for the battery. It's a nice looking battery, a big battery. Looks like it could be better. I only have two batteries total for the Karma, but it isn't enough. One battery to program the proper settings and a little flight time, then the second battery to finish the job. I'll probably buy a couple more batteries, especially for wedding season for next year. I would ask GoPro to lower the price on the batteries or make better batteries.

    Karma extra battery

    Well, this would have been a 5 star review except that the battery does lose some power while it is sitting dormant. I know all batteries can do this as I have TONS of different batteries for my electronics. But I fully charged this battery after I used my Karma last week, then last night I went to fly it again and it was at 85% I know I could solve this problem by charging the batteries before I use it instead of charging after I use it. But they take an hour to full charge and sometimes I do not want to wait an hour. So definately buy an extra battery. But at full charge you get about a 20 minute flight time, unless it is real windy, then it would be about 15 minutes.

    Just like anybody else, I wish drone batteries lasted hours on one charge, but with a couple of extra batteries I get to fly my drone for a while. Chose this drone over DJI for the simple fact that I can detach the GoPro and use it practically anywhere, I do believe dji is a better drone BUT the camera stays with the drone ... and that’s a drag :/ Love the steady shots I can get with it, it’s responsive and super easy to operate!

    I love having a 2nd battery for my drone. I got an extra battery for the GoPro camera as well, and its so convenient to have an extra battery always on stand by. I didn't understand why the controller for the drone didn't have an extra battery option, cause I would have bought one, but its battery lasts a long time between recharges, so its not needed. If your gonna fly more than once a day though, get the extra battery for the Karma and you won't regret it.

    Verify Production Date

    I used this spare battery when flying over water and received a critical low battery warning after about 7 minutes in sport mode. The drone attempted to self land and I was lucky enough to steer it over our boat and catch it by hand out of the air. The battery production date was 09/16 while the one that came included with my drone was 10/16. I've read reports of others having issues with the older battery so be sure to verify the production date when you buy and get the newer batch.

    A must have when buying the Karma Go Pro Drone

    I purchased a second battery pack from Amazon however it was an older model and didn't fit my drone. When I called Go Pro they told me I needed to go through an Vendor like Best Buy to insure correct model. I was informed that Go Pro reached out to all Vendors to recall old models however they could not guarantee some of the smaller vendors that full fill Amazon would comply. In short stick to authorized vendors that have newest products.

    Good battery

    I purchased this battery along with my karma drone because, I wanted to fly my drone more than the 30 min provided in the first battery. I’m glad I purchased it because, when I fly I often fly for 45min to an hour. I would give this review 5 stars however one feature which I disapprove of is, if you just leave the battery sitting for a while it uncharges itself. I have to constantly make sure it’s fully charged when going on a flight.
