That's the fatal flaw of the Black Edition. Do you absolutely need to use Wi-Fi? I hardly ever use it, and use Wasabi Batteries + Battery Bacpac

I've seen these recently. I'll have to order some and test them out eventually.

I chose the black edition for the improved camera. I rarely use the Wi-Fi. When I do it's primarily for camera alignment via my smart phone.

I am curious about this as well. If the 1200 got 5 mins longer, I would hope a 1600 would get 20 or 30 mins. I wonder why GoPro went with a 1050 in the first place. Why didn't they go with a higher mAh battery to start with?
