    Okay so the time has come where I need to buy a extra battery. Have seen a lot of aftermarket batteries some look original am not sure. I seen 5400 mah lipo. Supposed to give five minutes extra flight time. It also has a higher C rating. Another type I seen had an LCD at the front!

    Does anybody have any experience with these or similar? Please could you advise me what the best battery is for the best flight Time and performance.

    Also seeing some charges which can charge multiple batteries at once. Do You guys recommend this?

    I purchased the EBay version. It looked identical, but it is missing one, two conductor connection. I haven't tried it nor have I determined what role that two conductor plug plays. If you want an identical battery, it seems that DJI is the only source.

    Maybe someone else has additional information.

    They might be OK .. but it's hard to tell when they give hashed up details like ...
    22 mins isn't 5 mins extra.
