Battery backpack for hero3

Sorry if this has been covered already but I'm having trouble finding where I can get a battery backpack for my hero2? The only ones I can seem to find are only compatible with hero3 onwards... Are they not available new anymore? Do I need to find a used one? Thanks in advance

I have a Lcd backpack for a hero 2, it fits my hero 4.
@p fandango @Ifti they own other models maybe they can confirm it works with a supplied picture?

Since this Site does not offer us any models it is all based on others knowledge

So are you saying that a hero4 backpack may work on a hero2? It does specifically list on the box of the hero4 backpack which models it supports, and it's only hero3 onwards...
Apparently Amazon won't ship the old style backpack in your link to Australia... Grrr! I can't seem to find them anywhere, not even second hand on eBay

all I can tell you at the minute, is the newer ABPAK-301 battery bacpac fits onto the Hero 2. & its charging the GoPro via the USB lead plugged into the bacpac, which is a good sign

I charged everything up, but for some reason my Hero 2 doesn't want to turn on. The battery bacpac worked fine on the original HD Hero (which is older), ever run it off the bacpac without having a battery in the GoPro itself
