    Hi all,
    I live in Australia and bought my new P3S from a local electronics store here.
    I then ordered a 2nd original battery on eBay from another Aussie location (only had 5 cycles and in basically new).

    Can someone please tell me why my battery has Chinese writing on it yet the one I received from another Australian state doesn't? The model numbers are the same PH3.

    Original that came in my box is the one on the left of all the pics.

    Cheers
    Hunt

    The battery with the Chinese writing is the latest version. It's legit.

    Thanks for that.
    I was more concerned, or curious rather, at the one I bought off eBay that DOESN'T have Chinese writing on it.

    The battery without the Chinese writing is the original design. Both perform equally well.

    I have the same combination of batteries. I was concerned when the new battery showed up and was marked differently, thought someone was trying to slip me a counterfeit that would not work in my bird with the latest firmware update. All is good.
