    You need to find a battery that matches the specifications here: https://store.freeflysystems.com/collections/legacy/products/freefly-movi-battery

    Specifically you'll need to match the physical dimensions, the fact that the battery is four cells (aka "4S"), Lithium Polymer ("Lipo"), 14.8 volts when fully charged, and with a "JST" two-pin power connector (small red connector in the image on the web page at the link above) with a JST balance lead (white connector in the image). You will need to use the JST red two-pin connector to connect up to the charger (for the actual overall charging) and the white JST connector for the charger to do the internal balancing of the voltage between all four cells.

    Hope this helps.

    We use Overlander 2900mAh 4S 35C LiPos on ours. They are an incredible improvement over the Freefly batteries and go for about 3-4 hours. I did have to snip the stock power connector off and add one of the JST RCY connectors like the original batteries.
    But definitely worth it.
