    I pre-ordered a Phantom 3 battery (not the extra battery option for the P3) two weeks ago and just got a tracking number email from B&H Photo. I guess the batteries are now becoming available at the dealers.

    Mine, too. But, the battery I ordered with my P3P has not been shipped. Since I ordered the P3P combo long before I placed the order for the lone battery, I am surprised that it is shipping before the combo battery.

    This is very surprising... I emailed DJI in regards to my "extra battery" they said it is out of stock and should be getting more soon and I could expect it mid beginning to mid June. WTF! I placed this order in mid April how can others get there batteries before I do?
    Anyway... Guess I have to wait...

    I ordered the bundle. Checking the website now, it says 'in stock, order sent to warehouse' for the battery. Cool.

    Just checked on my 'Bundled' P3A order and it says 'payment confirmed', no FedEx tracking number for the battery. I placed my order on April 9th.

    Sure, why would DJi ship batteries to customers who only payed $100 per battery, when they can ship them for $149?

    Shouldn't DJi ship batteries to customers that placed their orders a month and a half ago?
