Charging while in recording

I like to use my GoPro Hero5 Black or Hero5 Session while driving or flying as a pax on planes. I noticed that while recording, the battery does not seem to charge or at least power the cameras while recording. Is this a fact or am I just missing something? My, now broken Hero4 Silver, DID charge (or at least power the camera) while recording.

Thx!

I have used a portable power supply connected while recording and it works well. Never tried AC power yet.

You need a powerful charger to record and charge at the same time. All my wall plains are 2.4Amps and it charges while records.

You need a high power charger. Get an Aukey SMART charger. It will send the maximum power to the device to charge the battery as well as run the recording.
