Yes I posted a deal around the beginning of the month where they were $104 at Amazon. They can be had for less than retail as I stated, but even at $119 or even $104 they are overpriced. I got lucky with a NewEgg sale and B&H price match + gift card for my 2 extra batteries.
Mike, I followed your link & bought them for the $119.00 price. Thank-You Mike for that tip. It was the DJI Store & they where running a sale.
$92.52 US shipped. Not bad, are they legit?No idea if this'll help, but you can get genuine DJI batteries for $78 plus delivery from here. I don't think UK shipping is as expensive as US. Anyway, just a thought....
Buy DJI Phantom 3 Intelligent Flight Battery 4480 mAh (DJP3BP)
Battery prices suck on just about everything. I am a photographer and the batteries my Canon camera uses retail for about $100 or so, and they are smaller than a Phantom battery.The only thing that annoys me about DJI is their battery prices. $150 for a 4S Lipo with balance board? It's ridiculous. I have been able to get them cheaper with coupons and sales. They get close to $100 from time to time....but even that seems high. They are gouging us with the battery pricing. They create the knock-off market with their outrageous pricing. Once I'm out of warranty I will research to find a good a quality, reliable knock-off battery.
I have a Canon 80D and I do use knock off batteries there. I researched to find highly rated reliable batteries, and they have been great.Battery prices suck on just about everything.

But just as for my P3P, I will spend extra for OEM for my cameras, way too much to loose there...

My primary is a 1D Mark IV, and my backup is a 1D Mark III, I can't afford to have something funky go on with my gear. As for Canon aftermarket batteries I hear both good and bad (and same for DJI ones) ... just my preference to stick with OEM.I have a Canon 80D and I do use knock off batteries there.

Around 15 years ago there was a Company that was putting a chip in a battery, so if the equipment didn't see the chip & its serial number, it would not allow it to even turn on.I'll probably be the only one to admit using knock off batteries, I can't really tell the difference, but they do make me a bit nervous.. Mainly because of all the negative stuff I've read online. Honestly, when it comes to a battery I'd probably go with DJI. But for me, I was looking to have a ton of batteries, so the price difference was a big deal.
As far as performance, the only thing I've noticed is the fact that the knockoffs don't auto discharge like the original ones.
Other than that, I get the same flight times and charge times as DJI batteries.
