    So the other night I was on ebay shopping around for a phantom 3 battery, I came across this seller (see the link) and I like the price and stupid me didn't realize until the next day that nowhere did it say it was a genuine DJI battery... so I messaged them trying to cancel my order, but they didn't read my messages and sent it anyway..... last night they finally reply they would refund me my money but I have to send it back so that's what I'm gonna do since I don't want to use third party batteries. But what I'm getting at is, if you look at the link and see how many batteries they have sold I was amazed :eek:, it just makes me wonder how many people never realized they are using non DJI batteries and are flying like that?, maybe that is one of the reasons why some people's batteries were shutting down mid flight?, cell discrepancies? or maybe some people do know what they are using and they work just as good?, anyone flying with this batteries some input? makes me wonder how reliable they are?, and no I'm not gonna try it and find out for myself, I will be returning this :confused: , the weirdest part is that the same seller has other batteries that are genuine DJI batteries on a different post... anyway here is the link

    4480mAh 15.2V Intelligent Battery DJI Phantom 3 Professional Advanced Standard

    Gotta watch that, good thing you caught that. Check the classifieds, I just saw OEM batts for $125 there. ;)

    Yeah the price on bats just dropped. I had a whole bunch of batteries that I stumbled on wholesale and I was selling them for 120 and just barely sold them all before people won't pay 120 from a non dealer. Mine were 100% legit though. Made a pretty penny on 80 of them.
