    Hi guys, I just purchased a new battery, but my Phantom 2 won't start with it!
    Here's the battery I purchased: DJI Phantom 2 Vision Intelligent Flight Battery 5200mAh

    So there might be a little mismatch since the battery is meant for a 2 Vision, while I own a 2.

    Any idea how to get this battery to work in my phantom?

    Thanks,
    Siebe

    They use the same battery. Have you checked it in the assistant? Does it recognise it as a DJI battery ?

    Hm I didn't even know there was an assistant. In fact I've never connected my phantom to a computer so far. I'll have a look. But I remember the sales person telling me something about upgrading the battery's firmware. Is it even possible that a battery has firmware? Or did he mean the copter's firmware?

    It has firmware.. and I suggest you really plug the phantom into a computer and do some stick calibration at the very least.
    There's also a bundle of firmware updates to fix various issues. Enjoy..
