The DJI Phantom 4 Battery is a 5350mAh, 15.2V Lithim Ion Polymer battery, which has been specifically designed for the Phantom 4 drone produced by DJI. This battery is specifically built for the Phantom 4 which enables optimal performance for your Phantom 4 drone.
The battery has built-in sensors along with LEDs that give you the status of the remaining battery power in real time!

DJI Phantom 4 Battery Comparison
When comparing the charge of the new intelligent phantom 4 battery versus earlier phantom battery versions let’s start by looking at charging time. I spent some time with both doing a little investigation to see how the phantom 4 battery charges. I found that when compared with the Phantom 3 battery, the p4 battery appears to start out charging more quickly, but in the end both batteries took almost exactly the same 57 minutes to charge.

After doing the report on charging times of the two different batteries I wanted to take some time to see which drone would fly longer with their respective batteries, the phantom 4 and it’s new intelligent battery or the phantom 3 and it’s battery. So I called a friend and we headed out to fly.
The flight times of the two drones was very comparable, which is what we expected according to DJI’s specs they said the flight time of the Phantom 4 wouldn’t be much higher than that of the earlier phantom version. I found that the P4 battery allowed the drone to fly for 21 minutes and 33 seconds, compared with only 18 minutes on my phantom 3. We flew the two drones until the warning light came on for the battery telling us to fly back to safety.
The reports I’m getting from my own experiments with Phantom 4 battery flight times are very similar to what I’m reading from my fellow drone bloggers. I think the reports put out by DJI about the flight time of the Phantom 4 and it’s battery are extremely accurate. You can expect only a tiny gain in flight time moving from the Phantom 3 to the Phantom 4, even though the DJI Phantom 4 battery is a bit larger and has the term “intelligent” in the title, it really doesn’t give you extended flight times.
