    I just got a new P2V2 and am wondering if the batteries I have for my 1 year-old P2 can be used in it. The vendor said they're not compatible but I'm not so sure. Can anyone advise?

    Many Thanks

    I don't think that was an accurate statement from your vendor... they probably just wanted to sell you some batteries. afaik P2 batteries are P2 batteries, they're compatible between the Vision and non-Vision series, no matter what generation / version

    It's possible older batteries might not run the newest firmware - which has a feature to automatically drain to 50% after 10 days.
    However that update seems to have been pulled anyway for the time being.
