    I took advantage of the Apple deal and got 2 new batteries, they are the newer ones with brighter LED and that's all fine BUT..

    I don't feel they fit properly. What I mean by that is they click in when pushed in. But they also move a little bit. If you push down on the battery a small gap develops between body and battery.

    The battery won't pop out unless you push both release tabs BUT my concern is the wiggle and gap because of the fact another member on here had an issue where he can easily pull the battery out.

    Any insight? Anyone having similar experiences? Batteries do make a STRONG click sound when pushing into the body so it makes me think they are secure but I worry because I do long distance flights

    Not sure if you have the same issue, but a guy reported his battery wouldnt stay in.

    New Battery from DJI doesn't set properly

    When you try to take the battery out, do you only lightly have to touch the tabs or push it right in?

    I didn't see this thread and started one with the same issue.

    Please mods, either delete or merge my thread, thank you. "Battery Wiggles" is the name.
