    Not a big deal but was wondering if you folks notice the newer batteries LEDS are brighter?

    My two spares ordered direct from DJI.

    Yes HTX. The batteries are smart. The firmware must be applied to the batteries as well

    I've only got two batteries and they're the same brightness. One came with the P4 and the other I later bought from a local Apple store..

    Where are you getting the dates? I can't seem to find any dates written on the batteries

    If you monitor your flight data. The battery information is there including serial numbers and dates

    It is not update thing. I think they are just using different parts or vendors to produce their battery.

    Can you confirm any performance differences between those batteries?
