This battery lasted 5-9 minutes of flight time in a building with no wind!

I used a OEM Parrot charger for the AR Drone 1.0 to charge this battery.

I was originally disappointed in my purchase due to the size of the battery. It did not fit in the battery inset properly. The seller reached out to me and sent a replacement and I am a very happy customer. The replacement battery is much smaller while being the same capacity. It fits in the drone without problem. From what I understand, all new purchases will recieve the new smaller battery.

The fact that the seller took the initiative and contacted me to offer a replacement gives me great confidence in his product. I would purchase again from him.

battery itself is of good quality, but connector is installed wrong. I connected this battery to my unit and it fried the circuit board. When I check to see what went wrong, I noticed that the battery connector was installed reversed. Let this be a warning to others to double check first.

Update:
Bastens CS has responded to this review, and I appreciate their efforts to correct the problem. Fortunately for me, it is a minor repair on the circuit board, and I corrected the polarity issue on the battery connector. This review was not meant to bash the product or the company, I would do business again with this company knowing they are willing to correct any problems. However, this is written as a warning to others, including myself to always double check the connectors. Mistakes do happen.

This is a must have item. Like all of us, I was wishing for a battery that would give me longer flying time without electronic or performance problems. One flight with the new battery showed me I'd made a good choice. I'm an aggressive flier, so I tend to burn batteries quickly, but this one gave me all the performance for at least 20 minutes.
I'll be looking to purchase a second one, and will seriously consider the higher rate charger and battery bundle.

I bought the battery and charger here on Amazon I received both 3 days before the delivery date. The battery had about a 40 % charge so I plugged it into the Drone 2.0 and I began flying it got almost a 10 minute flight at only 40% awesome. I then went to charge it I could not get it to recognize the battery I sent an email to Basten's less than 5 minutes I got a call from the owner Patrick who walked me thru hooking the battery up, I over looked the part in the instructions about hooking the banana clips to the discharge of the battery then plugging it into the charger oops. Patrick also gave me a quick and informative walk thru on understanding how the battery works. That is more than any other battery retailer would have done. I am so impressed with this seller I am ordering another battery. If you are looking to buy spare batteries for your Drone look no farther this battery is all I expected so far, the charger is awesome about 27 minutes after the cool down before charging and you are ready for another almost 20 minute flight !!!
THANK YOU FOR SUCH A GREAT PRODUCT AND AS FOR SUPPORT NOT EVEN AMAZON CAN COMPARE TO THE SPEED AND ABILITY TO RESOLVE A PROBLEM AS PATRICK DID, DO NOT GIVE IT A SECOND THOUGHT THIS IS THE QUALITY PRODUCT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.

I bought this battery expecting the 20 minutes i really got about 11 but that was just with the second flight(the charger status light was flashing green and red never had than happen!). I don't know much about Li-Po batteries the (the only type of batteries i know nothing about...). I don't have any major problem fitting the battery into the compartment it is firm ,but i would rather have longer flight time than have to worry about fitting a battery. I will keep using the battery in hopes of increasing flight time and shortening charge time. This battery is better than the one that came with it, it took approximately 2 hour to charge that battery which wasn't even what AR Drone said it was but their flight time was 6.5-8 minutes which isn't enough to really enjoy the helicopter. Bastens battery is a good battery just some minor issues will time the charge time and test in just hover flight.

As usual with Amazon, was delivered within a week as planned by UPS. No problem.
Regarding the endurance for a drone AR 2.0, yes it does increase it beyond the 12mn of the original parrot battery. However, I did just reach 16 mn and, as AR drone's owners know, when the battery reach 16% (ich), the drone goes down...
So, a good buy, yes, but not extending hugely the endurance of the drone.

This battery gives some extra minutes to standard AR.Drone 2.0 flight time!
The nicest feature is it's ability to be charged with a professional balanced charger but someone will object you CANNOT CHARGE IT with the Drone supplied silly charger!
Be ready to get a better charger for this, but you will fly longer and will last a lot!

You can find similar batteries for much cheaper, but if you're not willing to do the research and spend the time to get the right dimensions, this battery will work fine. Extends the flying time over the stock battery. Note - you can't charge this on the same charger as the stock battery, so you'll need a separate charger that's designed for charging LiPo batteries specifically.
