    Before buying two more batteries for my Phantom, I had one thought in my mind: ONE and ONLY battery model for Phantom 2, Vision and Vision Plus.

    But when I received the batteries, I could notice a model difference and a slightly difference between these ones and the two ones that came with my V2 Vision Plus. See the attached image.

    On the left, there is the model that came with my Phantom (733496-5200mAh-11.1V), and on the right, the model that I've just bought (PH2-5200mAh-11.1V).

    I've seen some posts saying that this PH2 battery has improved cells and stuff, but they deliver less voltage when full throttle.

    Do you guys know anything regarding these models, that could help me?
    Thanks a lot!

    Hmm... my guess was the one on the right is a knock off.
    My most recent was purchased in Jan. and is identical to the one on the Left.

    Where did you purchase from?

    I've bought it from an unofficial dealer (of course, there isn't any official Dji dealer here).
    But he's quite trustable since I've bought my Vision Plus with him, and it came with these two 733496 batteries on the left.

    He said it's the original Dji battery. I don't think it's a knock off, though, because I've seen some people in other threads regarding this difference, even in Dji forum, take a look:
    http://forum.dji.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=8407

    People claim it to have upgraded cells, but it seems to give less power when full throttling, as low as 10.7V.

    All good.

    But such precise reports of their differences is taken with a grain of salt.

    I have a PH2-5200. It's version 2 of the batteries.
    I hope they last more than 100 cycles.

    Why wouldn't they?
    They cost the same price as V1 batteries and are said to have upgraded cells. Even though visually they seem to have bad quality..

    The newest version is the one with 2.0 written next to the battery model.
    It's the one on the right of my picture.
