Gopro's operation is Ok,but it discharge very quickly

I have a Gopro Hero 4 Silver. It works fine, I can take photos and records videos but with the discharged issue it is impossible to use it. With a fully charged battery (even with a new battery), it only lasts a few hours.
Please advise, thanks.

This is my first GoPro (Hero 6), but from everything I read, my battery should last me about one hour. Your battery lasting a few hours does not sound bad at all.

A bit over an hour recording is top. Buy extra batteries.

Battery life will vary depending upon the currently active settings. Lower res and fps will yield higher battery life. About an hour on highest settings is normal for the Hero 5 and 6, so if you are getting a few hours that seems pretty normal to me

You could try a Battery BacPac to almost double your battery life......
