Where did you find that insane price ?

PS I will be happy to follow your attempt and replace the battery. Don't forget to use High Voltage (Li-HV) cells otherwise you will be overvolting on ordinary LI-Po cells as they are charged at 4.35 Volts each.

Regards, Leif.

Maybe supply and demand..I know pretty tough to get a battery here in Canada only option is an expensive knock off from China from Amazon but I see they've elevated their price as well to almost double of original.

A few time ago, the battery cost 99€ in most of the cases. Now the price increase up to 50%.

Are you sure, that in the Batterypack are HV Lipos included?

Here is a video, where an Italian open the Anafi to reduce the weight

I'm still wondering which dealer you see the high price since I can buy Anafi batteries for 99 euros anywhere here in Northern Europe ???

Each cell is charged up to 4.35 Volt which you should only do with a Li-HV cell if you do not want to destroy it very quickly. Try and charge a battery and measure the voltage across the two large connectors at the opposite end of the USB-C connector.

Yes I know what is inside the battery and so far I have not been able to find some Li-HV cells with an appropriate effect to replace the old ones.

Regards, Leif.

If you were lucky enough to have bought one from BestBuy Canada when they had them in stock they cost $129.99 + $2.50 EHF (Environmental Handling Fee) Plus HST of $17.23 for a grand total of $149.72

Now since we cannot buy batteries here in canada unless we find a 3rd party reseller on Amazon you are looking at around $99.45 to about $206.66 US funds depending who has stock. Most of them are Asia resellers marking the battery price up.

Yes correct...I remember now...lol.. was probably referring to Bebop batteries.
I did however talked with someone at Best Buy and they had no clue as to when or if they would be getting any more in..very frustrating

don't know if my post has any relevance on this topic..... Drones Direct in the UK have some deals on Anafi batteries..... I also saved £3.35 by shopping VIA "Topcashback", the cashback was in my account within mins of purchase of a spare battery.....(I have no affiliation to Drones Direct, I was just looking for a spare batt for the Anafi that I have just purchased)

You could also email Survey Equipment & Measurement Solutions | Spatial Technologies as I was told they would be carrying the batteries here in Canada soon. No idea on prices
Success!

Spatial Technologies in Calgary stalks the Anafi Batteries! I called Wed afternoon and they shipped two of them to their Edmonton Office for Thurs. Outstanding Service!!

Price per Battery was 140 plus bout 8 for GST

Thank you Agustine for info and both Kyle and Nigal at Spatial Technologies in Calgary!!
