Hero 4 Silver accessories with Hero 7 Black

I recently lost my Hero 4 Silver in the ocean (not smart!) and was considering buying a certified refurbished replacement. However they are $170 and a new Hero 7 Black is $399 and looks to be far superior. My problem is I do have a lot of Hero 4 accessories and I'm wondering if any can be used with the Hero 7. Is there a chart somewhere where I can find compatibility or can someone confirm whether some of these will work with the 7 or not

- all the mounts? Is there something that goes around the 7 so all the old mounts can be used?
- batteries? Does the 7 use the same batteries as the 4?
- remote control?

Thanks!

Batteries from the Hero 4 will not be compatible with Hero 7. Any housings most likely will not be compatible

Also the bluetooth adapter and usb type cables. I am sure there are a few more, like the lens protectors as well.

as said batteries & housings/frames won't fit, universal stuff like sucker mounts, roll bar mounts etc can still be used with the Hero 7 frame

Thanks for all the responses!

So if batteries are a no I guess the charger is also a no.
Mounts yes, good to know.

Remote control anyone?

Thanks again!
