    I want to buy a second battery for my P2V on Amazon Prime.

    I found this battery that's slightly less expensive because the package has very minor damage:

    Would you guys feel OK buying a battery like this one if it hasn't actually been used before?

    I would not risk if it was the same or slightly higher capacity, like 5200 mah or 5400.

    I did take a risk with aftermarket 6000 mah and no complaints so far! (Knock on wood).

    Appreciate your thoughts.

    Curious: how's that 6000 mah working out? Flight times? How many cycles with it so far?

    Around 3 cycles each. I did not measure flight times but I would say better in average by 2 minutes, my non scientific guess. They work fine so far although I have to say I am afraid to run any new Phantom update, as it may cause battery not working, like the last update. Thank goodness I did not connect to assistant although hard to say if it would affect my batteries.
