    Hi there

    I would like today to post my feedback with not original battery I used with my phantom

    http://www.onbo-power.com

    I would like to warn and advice everyone to never use any other battery that isn't made buy dji (original battery) especially in large distances and you can't depend on this battery in long or hard distances

    What made me write this post is that I didn't get a good reply from the seller he only apologized and he didn't do anything else about my phantom being destroyed by there battery, he also said they needed more time to know the reason !!! But the video and the images that I sent it proof the reason was the battery


    I bought this battery for 80 dollars and I was told that the battery was checked before they sent it to me from Hong Kong but at the end I lost my phantom plus that costs more than 1200 dollars

    After my phantom crashed it had so many problems that it couldn't be fixed
    I recommend that no one buys not original batteries from this I also posted a video on YouTube to proof what happened when I used that battery during flying

    As I was going back with still more than 74 percent, the battery warning signal in my ipad screen started to blink with still more than 70 percent was left !!!!
    After that my bird crashed and it was too far from takeoff point

    But I find it by using ( find my phantom 2 vision plus ) option in DJI app

    I posted small video in YouTube that proof what happened with me bird

    This is the closest I've ever seen to someone crashing into a car on a highway. Very scary. And in my opinion DJI are not immune to battery failures, just read these forums if you need proof.

    The battery controller board and gimbal are still worth money on Ebay. The Phantom itself is as well. Don't toss them.

    So what exactly happened then?
    Did the battery explode inside the Phantom or did it fall out and break apart?

    I agree it could easily be a faulty battery and those Ebay batteries look sketchy to me. I agree you should stay clear of them. But DJI sells a lot of bad batteries too. I had some weird warnings at 50% with a DJI battery but I was lucky and got my bird back down safely. It only happened once but it was scary.

    I cleaned all the contacts, drained and recharged the battery twice and I've never had it happen again.

    My guess is that it crashed on a highway and was run over by some vehicles.

    Thank you for your feedback and your apologise .
    It fell out of the sky and crashed on the road from a high altitude , after losing the WIFI signal and power as shown in tye video ,

    u agree that this thing also happes with the original battery but only after consuming all the battery power .

    But with this battery the error happened from the first try .

    But i disagree with you about being something other than the battery that made the bird fall.

    If this happened to me in the original battery i can assure you that the dealer in my country will fix the problem ,

    but this dealer only apologises to me .
    One of the people who knows about these stuff said
    They must be calculating the total ah used and assume that it's a 5500 aH battery !.
    There should be an firmware input where you select the aH of the battery .
    And this happens when the battery becomes too hot durin hard test with long distance
