    ive seen on here recently amazon US has been doing bats for $99. this is insane compared to the UK where the cheapest I can find is £114.

    has anyone got any suggestions or good places to buy them cheap from.

    Is that $99 for genuine batteries though? I've only bought one extra and paid £114 from Amazon (UK)

    yeah. i have been looking for weeks to find them for less than £114. was hoping DJI would drop the price over here like our US cousins but they haven't yet. I took the plunge and picked my extra one up from WEX Photographic for £124 along with a new camera body and other bits but shop around. sods law says next week they will drop the price lol.

    Prices tend to drop daily. Just make sure to check the reviews so you're sure to have original DJI batteries and not aftermarket batteries. Those can stop working after firmware updates.

    yeah I was careful these are sold and despatched by amazon, so should be original.

    It's hit and miss, 2 weeks ago I saw some for 96 and this week when I was checking for a friend they were 108.
