Hi everyone. I'm thinking of buying some more batteries for my phantom 4 pro and i came across those in ebay. They are obviously not original. The voltages and statistics look the same but I don't know if they are any good. Has anyone here used them? I would love to hear some opinions! Tnx in advance.

Post a link to the batteries you're referring to so others can take a look.

Any reason not to buy OEM DJI batteries?

Long time shipping or returns, for a no name battery. From China. I’m glad Yooper has success with them, but not for me. Refurbished DJI batteries are even slightly used DJI batteries is your best bet. If cost is the primary issue. There are other aftermarket in the $95 range that are available locally that a few here use, with success. I have only one aftermarket, by ExpertPower, $99 from Amazon. Good reviews. So far so good. Only Fly it in my oldest bird, but can’t tell it apart from original, So Far.

If you check the classifieds in this forum, there are slightly used DJI batteries for sale. $115 shipped. They had 23 originally and I purchased one right away. I checked a couple days ago and they still had a few left. Worth checking

Keep in mind though, these are high capacity batteries, not standard. If the wait isn't an issue, that's not an unreasonable price. I use aftermarket batteries in my (now my daughter's) P3S. We have 3 OEM, 2 aftermarket, with no issues so far. The ones in the forums classifieds are all OEM. Nothing wrong with them either. I do like eBay for the protection, which I just recently got to experience. Purchased N.O.S. P4 battery that was DOA. Seller issued refund soon as I contacted him, which is really nice. Not saying anything bad against seller here. Just my personal preference. @Capt KO had good experience with him.

When it comes to batteries I do not scrimp. They are the life blood of my drone and I am concerned about the battery dieing while in flight.,
