    Yuneec batteries, just like any other major drone manufacturer are application specific with no aftermarket options. That could be a good thing for the novice or beginer that have limited knowledge of lipo batteries. My experience with this specific battery is that the cells were badly unbalanced and the factory charger was unable to cope with it. It took me about three cycles of balancing, charging and discharge to bring the cells within 3% of each other. To this date I still can't get the full performance this battery should deliver. Overall, an over price substandard product.

    Pricey & Don't Last

    We purchased two of these batteries during our most recent visit to Best Buy and had to return one of the batteries because it would not charge. Customer Services was very helpful and politely exchanged the battery for me without any issue. Just be aware that these batteries do not last very long. We only get 5-6 uses out of each one before having to purchase replacements which gets quite expensive for drone operation @ over $100 per battery!!!

    I recently purchased the Yuneec Typhoon G (also a 4 star review), which I really enjoy flying. The included battery provides around 25-27 minutes of flight time without a GoPro camera on board; in my experience, I am getting 18-19 minutes of flight time with my (not included with the Typhoon G) GoPro camera attached. Spare batteries are a must! The only issue is that these batteries (and other accessories) are very expensive.

    This battery for my Yuneec Q500 4K was a replacement for another battery and this one works fine. It can't get any better than working so I feel it's a little above average but not perfect. It would be nice to have a battery that allowed you to fly longer but I'll take what I can get. Since the other battery I had didn't work and bulged I guess I'll live with the way this one functions!!

    This battery was a replacement for an original that came with my Typhoon Q500 4K.The first one only charged 2 times.The store wouldn't replace it because it was past the return time ,even though I didn't open the box for 2 months due to the weather being bad.I called support and they have'nt really come thru with a replacement.But the new one works fine.

    This is the first drone that I have ever purchased. Very easy to fly. Great picture quality. If I had one negative thing to say, which prevents me from giving it a 5-star rating is that the camera will disconnect from the controller. This isn't bad if you are doing a scenery video, but if it is a moving object, you will lose sight of it occasionally.

    Perfect addition to the Yuneec Drone

    Add another 25 minute flight before you have to go home. If you have the drone you know you can only put one battery in the Yuneec drone, so all you have to do is land, replace, and fly again. The Yuneec drone Styrofoam packing has a slot for a second battery so this is easy to add to your equipment.

    I have needed to buy many batteries for my drone. The batteries must be stored perfectly but there is no consistent directions to store them. I would spend extra to purchase an items that stored and charge the batteries but Yuneec does not offer one

    I a,pm really gald to have an extra battery for my Yuneec Q500. 20+ minutes of flight time is great. With an additional battery the flight time is even better. I charge this battery as soon as I am done using it. It is balanced and ready to go anywhere and anytime.

    I love my Typhoon and am so impatient that I do not like to wait while batteries charge so i have a few of these :) They work as described and give a great output. I have not tested it but it seems these last a few minutes longer than the one that comes with the unit.

    This Drone only takes this specific battery so you don't have much of a choice. That being said the battery has performed well and I can't complain, except for the price.

    I bought a Q500 4K. After flying for the first time, I immediately discovered that the 1 battery included was not enough flight time(25 minutes). I highly recommend purchasing this second battery for an extended flight time.

    I was happy to see that Best Buy keeps the batteries for these drones in stock. I've found the yuneec brand battery to be better performing than 2nd party batteries available for this drone. Still I wish the batteries would last more than 20 minutes.

    Battery works great with the yuneec copter

    This Battery is fairly simple and straight forward. Charges at or quicker than listed charging time, lasts as advertised for usage time. Battery cost is a bit pricey, but because of the application, there isn't many options out there for an alternative.

    This is a LiPro Battery, it gives about 20-25 minutes of flight time, depending on wind, altitude and how you fly. this is consistent with other Yuneec batteries. Not sure how long they will last, I've recharged mine over 12 times so far no issues.

    Other than I wish the batteries lasted longer during flight time these are good batteries. They take a while to charge but they are basically the only option you have when flying YUNEEC. I am pleased. Too Expensive though!

    This is the same battery that comes with the Typhoon Q500 drone and works just as well in all respects. I find it very helpful to have a second charged battery ready anytime I take the drone out for a flight.

    I purchased this battery along with the drone. The batter ran down and will not charge. It is not recognized by the charger or the drone. Have to contact customer service to get a replacement.

    These batteries last about 15-20 mins depending on wind conditions. You have to be careful how you store them because they will lose their capacity if you keep them in heat or fully charged for a long time.

    Since you can only get maybe 20-25 minutes of flight time off a battery, it's great to have at least one spare battery to extend your flight time and enjoyment. Easy to swap due to a great design by Yuneec.
