    Smart Battery For DJI Standard Thru 4

    DO NOT PURCHASE A 3RD PARTY BATTERY FOR YOUR DRONE !!!!!!! The forums are full of stories of disasters around 3rd party batteries. Only purchase genuine DJI batteries. Yes they are more expensive, but they are designed specifically for the flight software of DJHI products (Also sold by Best Buy). The battery is a "smart" battery. It is a LiPO so it hold plenty of raw power. The DJI flight control app reads the battery data and tells you what levels you have left. You can preset a level and the battery will hit that level and tell the drone to "Return To Home". It also calculates the number of times the battery has been charged and then when it should be 100% discharged and charged back up. to maintain proper levels. Well worth the money. I have 5 of them.

    Finnicky batteries, but work well

    Just a few words of advice with these batteries: read the instructions on how to prep and use these batteries, as well as how to keep them conditioned. The 'intelligent' portion of these batteries is helpful - they have a function that tells you the remaining battery life, which will save you time and enable you to buy another battery before the current one dies. These do not function at less than 41 degrees fahrenheit - so be wary of cold weather flying - and ensure that the batteries are 'warmed up' before use, which means letting the drone hover for a minute or two to get the internal temperature of the battery up above 60. All in all, good stuff.

    This battery is awesome, you can set it to auto discharge via the DJI Go app at up to 10 day intervals . Auto discharge will extend the life of your battery but beware, if you fly on a partially charged battery, or a battery that has started to auto discharge you risk your quadcopter falling from the sky. It clearly states in the literature that comes with the quadcopter to always fly with a fully charged battery. I have never had any problems since I always top off all my batteries before i head out and land at around 30% every time. One last thing, if you charge the battery and then leave it plugged in and turn it on, you can top it off the last 3-5% or so.

    Must Have Addtl Batteries

    The Phantom 3 Pro will fly on a full battery for about 17-20 mins. Be prepared with addtl batteries. They're expensive, but that's expected. They battery management system in the app is great. It manages discharges, how many times you've full charges, battery life, and firmware. If you plan to film for longer than 20 minutes, addtl batteries are must have + 1 extra charging cord. I chose 2 addtl batteries and 1 charging cord. It takes about 40 minutes to fully charge a dead battery. When a battery dies I put it on the charger, then I have 2 batteries in rotation.

    Perfect second battery

    No matter which drone you own, pickup a second battery,. This is the OEM battery for the DJI Phantom 3. I purchased this battery to before I went on vacation. now i have about 45 minutes or so of flight time before having to charge a battery. With the Phantom 3 Professional, you can fly your drone, change out your battery and place the first battery in the charger and then fly with the second battery. By the time your second battery is drained, you first battery is nearly 100% charged with the Phantom 3 Professional charger.

    It's a battery...how I bought it is the real story

    Not much to say here; it's a battery. But it is OEM and not a knock off and I bought it on a price dip so it was a good purchase. The real story here is how I knew when to buy it. Best Buy doesn't make a big enough deal about it's integration with IFTTT but it truly rocks. I set up a rule at IFTTT to send me an email and a text alert whenever the price on a specific SKU changes - in this case the battery. Then I just sat back and waited. I do this every time I'm looking to make a purchase of something I want but don't NEED and it works like a charm.

    Extra battery for more flying time

    I purchased 3 additional batteries for my Phantom 3 Professional and all batteries seem to last an average of 17-18 minutes on each charge which is pretty much normal. Extra batteries are very much needed if you are out away from a power source to charge the batteries. Each battery does keep track of how many times you have charged them and has an automatic discharge function after 10 days of non use to prolong the life of the battery. You can view this data through your viewing device. (Ipad, phone, tablet, etc...)

    Good battery so far

    When I bought my drone I bought an extra battery. My only regret is not buying two. Flight time is indeed close to what's advertised, but you'll find that you'll be bringing your drone in early vs risking it crashing when the battery dies. My only suggestion, buy two. My brother-in-law found some cheaper batteries online. They don't fit properly and give erratic behavior. I wouldn't risk it. Sure the cost of these is not small, but there is peace of mind knowing it's going to work when you need it.

    I have a total of 4 Intelligent Flight Batteries and although I have not timed how long they are lasting, I believe that I am getting 20-22 minutes of flight time on each battery. I have only had my DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone out 3 times and I have been having so much fun flying it that I have not even timed how long the batteries are lasting. They are good solid batteries and I would recommend them to anyone with a DJI Phantom 3 drone!

    Always have 3 or 4 batteries if you are going to fly a lot. These are great batteries. One thing: Apple computer does not work well if at all with DJI Phantom drones. It took me two years to finally solve a problem. Support would not tell me this. Don't send it to DJI for repairs either. It will take months to get it back unless they have changed. Find an independent Dealer like in Austin Tx. I used Microsoft Computer and all the software updates works but not with Apple IMac.

    Although this is supposed to be a new battery, after only a few uses of the battery the DJI App identified the battery as having a bad cell. I consistently get this message even after firmware updates. At this point I am past the extended return policy. I got the battery on sale at the time but feel its been a waste of money. Don't want to take the risk of flying my DJI Phantom on a battery that their software recognizes as being bad.

    Technology has finally caught up with the new smart battery for my Phantom 3 drone. This gives one the securities of being able to fly in confidence not to mention the safeguards in place for when one needs to recharge it for the next flight. On a another note, Best Buy was able to have my new battery available for pickup the very same day of purchase. In addition, customer service was extremely knowledgeable of my purchase not to mention very friendly.

    Had to knock off stars due to the high price. We needed an extra battery for our drone, and only trusted the Phantom brand (no knock offs), so we forked over the cash for this one. Didn't have much choice. It's identical to the original and works well, but $125 for a battery?? That was the sale price! Unless you absolutely need one for larger video projects, save your money until the price comes down.

      The Phantom 3 Intelligent Flight Battery is designed with safety and reliability in mind above all else. 3rd party batteries are not certified or warrantied to work with the Phantom 3. Official batteries should be used at all times. DJISupport

    I had no idea at the time of purchase the technology and intelligence that a Company such as DJI could put into a battery. The firmware of the battery is upgradeable and found the process to be relatively easy. DJI has done a great deal of R&D to bring their products to market and looking forward to using these for a long time to come. It's great that Best Buy has them in stock, as well as other DJI accessories.

    The battery for the DJI drones are fairly expensive but completely necessary to make sure you get all the extra flight time you are going to want to get out of your amazing new DJI drone. They charge surprisingly quick for how large they are and have an incredibly easy to read battery meter. I get a solid 23 minutes of flight time and have considered adding a 3rd so I can stay out flying even longer.

    wish it wasn't so expensive but it does the job and its good to have 2 batteries. Investing the time in flying the drone its good to get 20 minutes of flight before its time to return to home. Charge that battery, pop in a new one and off you go. Would recommend a flash charger (the kind you use for a phone) to charge your controller on the go. The controller should last 2/3 flight batteries.

    I have been using LiPo batteries in my RC airplanes and heli's for years. This dji intelligent battery really is smart. I really like the feature that it automatically keeps logs and returns the battery to a storage charge if not used in a few days. This keeps the LiPo in top condition. While $150 is a lot for a 4S 4480mAh LiPo its worth it with all the safeguards and functions built in.

    If you try to do anything with the DJI Phantom 3, you are going to need/want more than one battery. 20 minutes just isn't enough. Not much to say about the batteries, other than they are solid and good quality. Only reason why not 5 stars, is simply the price. It is a steep cost, when you buy 3 of them.

    After previous poor experience with non OEM batteries on a different brand of drone, I decided it was not worth the risk with more than an entry level drone to purchase off brand batteries. This battery performs perfectly and I would definitely recommend that flyers of drones that are not "toys" buy OEM batteries unless there is compelling evidence to do otherwise.

    Make sure to read the care instructions for this battery and it will perform extremely well. The interface for battery maintenance is more than you could ask for and the scheduled discharge is a very welcome feature. It also has a built in charge indicator, which is nice to have. Once again, read and learn the proper care of this battery and you will not be let down.
