Xiaomi Yi Discovery Action Camera is a great camera for its price and is definitely better than 90% of its counterpart in its price range, but the rarity of its replacement battery is a big challenge to its users.
Yi Discovery is a GoPro Hero 7 on budget and can be a great buddy of many casual vloggers but what to do when the one and only stock battery run out of power?
Last month, I purchased a Yi Discovery from Lazada for ₱3,980 ($76). I was amazed at its performance until almost 2 hours when the battery started to give-up. I immediately thought I need at least two extra replacement but after hours of searching online and finding nothing, I was horrified. I found one from Shoppee but was out of stock.
I didn’t give-up so the next morning I started searching again using different keywords other than the most obvious “yi discovery battery”. After sending countless messages to Lazada stores, I got some useful answers that I want to share with you here.
I found at least two stores in Amazon but unfortunately, both sellers doe not ship batteries to the Philippines. So, if you are from the US and trying hard to find a replacement battery for your Yi Discovery action camera, consider the following battery models.
