    Ive bought a few of these but when i got them i noticed the little red info sheet inside says "batteries bearing model number PH2-5200mAh-11.v include new upgraded cells. Please upgrade the phantom central board firmware to version 1.0.2.7 or above through phantom assistant before using the battery for the first time."

    Now I'm not a fan of updating firmware and don't even think i have any installed anything phantom related on my pc, it came it worked, i haven't touched it since :D
    Has anyone tried these? will i HAVE to update/insatall software & firmware and is there anywhere that sells original p2v1 batteries

    You need to update your firmware.

    Yip I had to update the firmware on the battery and then the battery wouldn't provide full thrust, had to drain and fully charge then it worked fine.
