    Got this from Banggood

    "The order 2191*** was included [SKU119127]DJI Phantom 2 Vision 11.1V 5200mA Lipo Battery and we can't sent the pure batter as Aviation regulations at present.Could you please change other product?
    We are looking forward your answer.
    Sincerely,"
    So this order was pending for 2 weeks, nice 1.
    Anyway, how are the generic batteries working out? anyone with any issues?
    I live in Ireland so it looks like shipping is going to be a problem regardless if I buy the branded or generic batteries, i'm leaning towards the Phantom Batteries as I don't want to be on here in a months time with my tail of warning and loss.

    Just a quick update, I asked to be refunded and now I'm told the battery will ship in the next 48 hours

    I think they refer to aviation regulations concerning lithium batteries, whether "branded" or "generic". Perhaps they send your package by sea now...
