    What are some inexpensive 3rd party battery pack options for the Phantom 2? I already have a Turingy Accuell 6 smart charger (charges li-po, li-ion, pb, ni-mh) so I don't need a battery with the extra charging circuitry like inside the DJI batteries. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks

    My personal opinion is I would not use anything but the DJI battery.Ever.
    I appreciate the work my P2 does and it coming home everytime.

    Ok, but for those who aren't you, what's recommended besides the DJI batteries?

    May I ask how are you going to connect a non smart battery into the phantom 2?

    That will depend on what people suggest, but my guess would be to canibalize a single DJI battery and make an adapter of sorts.

    I use Limefuel 6000 mAh batteries in mine.
