P4P+ original battery first used 12/2016;
today got "bad battery bad cell" message;
need new battery delivered tomorrow (FL, US)
advice another DJI battery vs. ?cheaper? off-brand;
what off-brands are reputable?
anyone know of current promotions including
free or reduced overnight shipping?
in reality, who has had issues with off-brand;
my thinking is, how much longer will my P4P+ last
& that replacement in ?few? years will take smaller battery...
thanks in advance, need to order by early afternoon....

The only service I know that might be able to deliver by tomorrow would be Amazon Prime. I just checked, and my suspicions are confirmed. No batteries are available from Amazon with next-day shipping available. Your best bet might be if you have a drone store near you, you might be able to get one there. Or maybe check Craigslist and see if anyone selling a Phantom 4 Pro might be selling batteries or might be willing to sell a battery. Otherwise, you'll have to use normal shipping. I think the reason that batteries take so long to ship is that they must be shipped with ground shipping meaning that they can't go on an airplane. Therefore, they take awhile to arrive.

Thanks for response.
Yes, Drone Nerds near me offers DJI brand $185 + tax.
One local Walmart clerk says batteries online only.
Can anyone report they HAVE been able to buy P4-P4P battery
in-store recently at a Walmart or Best Buy...?
Will be driving Wednesday Miami-Orlando so if any tips for in-store buy...
Thanks in advance :D :D :D

They can go by air but may be restricted to cargo only aircraft

Not sure what brand Walmart sells. If is reads DJI, you should be fine.
If you buy a P4 battery(low capacity), it won’t fly as long as the P4P battery(high capacity).

No way unless a local shop because flights are now prohibited to carry air - only ground shipping.
Maybe RaceDay Quads has some and they are local near you.
