    Damnit, they ship to Australia ... and free shipping current deal is on. But they do not ship DJI items to Australia due to manufacturer restrictions.

    Tell me about it. Worked out quite cheap per battery, even with the current exchange rate. Like $30-40 cheaper than I've gotten one before.

    As in allow the local retailers to keep reaming us in AUS.... none of the majors will ship to us now. Even the dji website has special prices for AU. The inspire pro is almost 2k more.

    Amazon and Best Buy have the same deal, if they ship to Australia.

    I tried to purchase one, but B&H doesn't allow me to proceed the order due to 'export regulations and/or manufacturers restrictions...'. How disappointed.

    Borderlinx will ship your items purchased in the USA to Australia. They are a good service and package numerous purchases into one parcel to save in shipping.

    I am not sure about lipo batteries so check the t&c otherwise pick one of the personal shoppers as they will send them no problem from the USA.

    You said the the batteries from B&H were old stock like you knew something.
    I will be buying another battery,
    How did you know for sure they were "old stock" ?
    You called them? If so how old were they?
    As much volume as they move, I'm surprised they would have old stock on batteries.
    Or is this something DJI does?

    And exactly where is this date code on a DJI P3 battery?
    Hint: a Phantom 3 battery is not a food item. You however, may see it differently ;)
