    It's a knock-off battery, so I don't recommend it. For $40 more, you can get an OEM battery.

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Phantom Pilots forum. I hope that you will take advantage of the benefits that come with membership and that you will be able to use the forum for the exchange of innovative ideas and as a resource for current developments in Phantom quadcopter’s.

    When it comes to batteries for the Phantom you don't want to cut corners to save a buck now as it may mean the loss of your equipment due to failure. OEM DJI batteries are highly recommended. Also, if you were to have an issue and need warranty work I am guessing they would blame the non-OEM battery and you would be left to cover all the repairs out of pocket.

    Enjoy your new quad and fly safe!
