    I think I'm correct: Movi doesn't sell additional batteries yet. I like carrying an additional, fully-charged set of batteries when I shoot. I don't want to damage my CR, my phone, or myself with some "battery incident."

    The batteries in the CR appear to be 18650 Li-ion, 2000mAh, 3.7V batteries. Don't see those on Amazon. The ones I find are linked below:

    Panasonic NCR18650B Super Max Rechargeable Li-ion Battery, Flat Top Green, 3.7V 3400mAh or
    Samsung INR18650-25R 18650 2500mAh 3.6v Rechargeable Flat Top Batteries.

    Will those work properly, does anyone know where to find the ones in the CR, or should I abandon my backup battery idea?

    I've tested these -- albeit on a limited basis. They seem to work fine.

    I was thinking about getting a spare set as well. Though after being on vacation last week, I'm not sure I'd need it except for long shoots. I used the Movi a lot and only charged it twice during the week. And even then it was above 50% when I charged it. I'm impressed how long it lasts. Of note, I was using it just with my iPhone X, no lens or counter weight installed, I'm sure it will burn more battery with more weight.
