    Hello,

    I purchased my Phantom 2 Vision+ back in December with 2 batteries. I updated both batteries using the Phantom 2 Vision Assistant 3.6 software at that time. The battery Loader versions and Firmware versions are both showing:

    Loader Version: 1.5.0.0
    Firmware Version: 2.6.0.0

    This week I received 2 new batteries from DJI directly, and they are both different Loader/Firmware versions:

    Loader Version: 2.3.0.1
    Firmware Version: 1.0.0.8

    I tried clicking the No updates link on all 4 batteries, but the software indicated that there are no updates available.

    Am I mistaken in thinking the Loader versions & Firmware versions should be the same on all 4 batteries?

    I’m confused??

    Thanks for your help!!

    Bit.

    The 2.6 battery firmware was only available for a short while.
    It has a nice feature where it will discharge your battery to safe storage (about 50%) after ten days if you don't use it.
    That firmware was quietly withdrawn with no explanation but they have stated a new version will come out 'soon'.
    Either version should work without any problem.

    Yep, I'm not holding my breath. I received a email stating a new version will be out very soon. That was December. :lol:
