    Hey guys a little help here. I just got a new battery from Amazon a couple weeks ago and hadn't noticed till now that the printing on the battery is different than my original 2. Has anyone received an official DJI battery that looks like this? Battery firmware updated fine and it runs fine with the DJI Go app. Even the box looked good. Just want to make sure I got an OEM. Battery #3 is the one in question.

    Third one looks different, if it works with FW 1.8.80, then its legit

    Ok, I've got 1.8.80 installed, maybe they sent a mainland China version?

    Oh, I just found somebody else that had the same batteries Phantom 3 battery
    @msinger said it was legit, so I guess I'm good to go. So weird they changed up the printing for both English and Chinese. Thanks for your help @alokbhargava

    Pretty sure my dad got that same one. It too updated fine and no issues. That Chinese writing made us wonder if it was just imported Chinese stock or something. Either way, works as good as the others!
