MJX X600/X601H Battery Mod/Upgrade

MJX X600 Battery
Hello Fellow Droners,

Looking to get some extra batteries for your MJX X600 or X601H?
Well you are in luck, as I am going to go into detail about your many options.

But first, in order to pick some batteries, we have to know what we are working with.
So we need to get the measurements and tech specs of the stock battery, and the measurements of the battery compartment itself.

Now please keep in mind, the C rating on batteries is pretty important.  It is generally not a good idea to get a battery with a lower C rating than the OEM battery.  The higher the C rating, the more expensive the battery is to manufacture, and manufacturers want to cut costs wherever possible, so they would go lower if they could.  Meaning, they stopped at that specific C rating for a reason.  If you dare to go lower, be prepared to kill those batteries pretty fast.  See my full post here: Drone Batteries: OEM vs. Generic vs. Brand Name

Now, let’s get to it shall we?

The stock (OEM) battery is a GN (Gāonéng/高能) 603048, 2 Cell, 7.4V, 700mAh, 25C, LiPo.
Balance Plug: JST-XH
Discharge Plug: mini-JST

From here we can see it is 56.17mm x 29.76mm x 13.78mm  or 2.21″ x 1.17″ x 0.54″.

Then, lets take a look at the battery compartment.
Which is 60.46mm x 31.21mm x 14.96mm or 2.38″ x 1.22″ x 0.54″.

Generic Batteries

Tight on cash and looking to get a few spares to hold you off until you can afford to really upgrade?  I was there and bought a 5 pack of BTG batteries off Amazon, and I have to say, the perform exactly like the stock/OEM batteries.  Unfortunately, they are no longer available on Amazon.  So I will try to find them on another site.  Stay tuned.
