Moment: Home of the Best Drone Accessories
Moment’s got you covered for just about every filming scenario. You can purchase a drone, grab special drone lenses, filters, and other drone attachments you can rotate through during productions.
So, naturally, we have all the best drone accessories for starving drone enthusiasts as well -- since, you know, we’re full of them here.
What we’re trying to say is that if you need it, we got it. See the items we have in our shop and learn a little more about them here.
Warning: If you’re serious about your drone work, you must scoop up at least one of these accessories for your DJI drones.
DJI Mavic Accessories for the Drone Enthusiast
Let’s start with spare batteries (capable of performing CPR on your drone when it’s on its last breath), then work our way down.
For the moments when your drone’s main battery is ready to call it quits, we’ve got a couple of handy little spares in our shop to help you power through the remaining minutes of your shoot. Look at these gems:
DJI Mavic 2 Intelligent Battery
Although the latest drones have made huge steps forward as far as operation/flight time, we can never get enough! The DJI Mavic 2 Intelligent Battery packs an additional 27 minutes of flight time, helping you get those final shots in. Our battery releases you from the bonds of waiting for your drone to charge before reuse. Not only does waiting waste precious filming time, but you could potentially lose vital momentum and inspiration while you’re sitting idle.
The Mavic 2 works with the DJI Go App, giving you real-time info on the status of your battery life. The battery features over-charge and discharge protection so that your battery’s (or drone’s) shelf life isn’t compromised.
Technical: There are a few technical specs we love about this battery. For example, it’s got a powerful voltage of 11.4V, a capacity of 3830 mAh, energy of 43 WH, and operating temperatures of 41 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Best part? The battery clocks in under half a pound! We say this is the perfect spare drone battery for beginners and advanced videographers.
DJI Mavic Air 2 Intelligent Flight Battery
The Mavic Air 2 Intelligent Fight Battery is similar to the last one, just souped-up a bit. It features a built-in DJI Intelligent Battery Management system, so you get battery status in real-time (again, very similar to how the former model works). The kicker here is that you get an additional seven minutes of flight time -- Can be extremely valuable for filmmakers who can’t waste a second of filming time.
Technical: The Mavic Air 2 Intelligent Flight Battery packs a three-cell polymer lithium-ion battery, with overcharging and over-discharging protection. Additionally, the battery has a rated capacity of 3500 mAh, 40.42 WH, rated voltage of 13.2V (offering around two more Voltages than the former battery), and more extreme charge & discharge temperature protection.
Deciding between the two drone accessories is pretty simple. How badly does every minute of uninterrupted shooting matter to you?
So we knocked out which spare batteries you should pick up and why it’s vital to have at least one. Next, let’s go over a drone accessory designed specially in the Moment lab. That being a drone landing pad.
Rugged Drone Landing Pad
For real videographers or the hardcore drone enthusiast we want to introduce you to Moment’s very own Rugged Drone Landing Pad. We like to call it a helipad that does more. It’s basically a work surface for getting your drone all set up and ready to fly. The helipad allows your drone to take off and land safely in any terrain, while its sturdy construction blocks any debris (including snow, besides dirt and dust) to come in contact with your drone. Score.
Moment’s Drone Landing Pad is weatherproof, clocks in at well under a pound, and is covered by our lifetime warranty for Moment branded products. Double score.
Need a place to store your spare battery while not in use? Strap on a comfortable travel bag from Moment to safely carry your drone accessories and other gear while on the go. Or pick up the DJI Care Refresh for the Mavic Air 2 for added protection. Think of it as AppleCare for your drone.
What do I need to buy a drone lover?
Buying a drone lover a gift is pretty easy since there are so many drone accessories available online. If you want to "wow" the person getting your gift (while spending your money on something useful), we recommend gear from our anamorphic drone lens, to one of our high-quality drone accessories, like the Mavic Air 2 Battery, or Moment’s own Rugged Drone Landing Pad. That’ll bring the wow factor alongside something usable for life!
How can I make my drone more powerful?
There are a few tricks to making your drone “more powerful.” First, get your hands on the Moment Rugged Drone Landing Pad to ensure your drone is set up to fly from the best possible helipad. Also, get a couple of spare batteries like the DJI Mavic 2 Intelligent Battery to add 30+ minutes of flight time to your drone once the main battery runs out of juice. While everyone else is recharging, you’re getting in needed shots!
Do I need a drone landing pad?
While not a requirement to capture great drone footage, drones have a lot of moving parts that require setup. A drone landing pad such as Moment’s enables you to quickly fold open a work surface to use anywhere, get your drone up and running ASAP, and blocks debris from coming in contact with your drone.
Do I need a drone battery?
Yes. Consumer drones run on electricity, most on batteries, and buying spare batteries could be the difference between cutting your filming short right when you need it most, and going home happy knowing you captured every possible minute of footage you need to create your next epic video.
So not only can you buy your drones, lenses, and other gear for your creative drone projects, here at Moment, you can buy everything else along with it, including drone accessories like spare batteries, landing pads, and extra protection. We’re not kidding when we say we strive to create and facilitate the best place online for creatives to buy drone accessories (and other filmmaking gear), and put that gear to the test, while learning and supporting each other in the process.
If you’re still a bit unsure about which battery you need, the inner workings of our landing pad, or just need help getting all set up, reach out to one of our Gear Guides for help. Happy Droning!
