    I bought 4 batteries for my Hero 7 and all of them showed up bulged up in the sides. Ordered 2 from the GoPro website and bought 2 from Target. And this isn't the first time it's happened. This is wrong with GoPro's quality control? So many battery issues floating around the internet but all...

  5. GoPro Hero to Hero 5
    Hi all, just found my dad's old goPro Hero and it works fine. The battery though, seems to have lived past its prime as its depletes in 15 minutes and heats like crazy. Should I buy a new battery or is it more cost effective to just get a new camera (living in Portugal) ? I still have all his...
  6. Hero 8
    Ok this may have been a little naive of me to assume it could do this but come on , I don't think I've ever owned a digital camera that couldn't. I've just got my Hero 8 and thought it would be an upgrade from my Yi 4K+ but maybe I was wrong. I usually attach a huge backup battery to my action...

    Do y'all know if there's a battery health test we can run? I have 2 batteries (one that came with the GoPro itself and one from a GoPro battery charger). One of them might be causing or having intermittent power issues. Dunno if the specs matter in this case but I have a new Hero 7 Black at...
  9. GoPro Hero to Hero 5
    I thought i made a rookie mistake by not charging up the GoPro when I was kayaking last week. I went to turn it on when I was on the river and nothing happened. Then, when I got back to the house, I tried charging and nothing happened. The red light never turned back on. Do you think that large...
  10. GoPro Hero to Hero 5
    I know the bacbac is at least twice as large as the regular batteries, but I can't find the mAh specs on them. What is the mAh capacity for the regular batteries? mAh capacity for the bacpac? mAh capacity for aftermarket bacpac (Wasabi power) is apparently 1260 mAh for 24$. Is this a deal or the...
  11. Greetings & Introductions
    Hey people, Just joined, and just bought the Session 5 - in a bit of a last minute decision as leaving UK on way back to Nepal where I live most of the time (obviously boat loads to film here, it boggles the mind). So a few questions: - did i blow it and buy the wrong machine? (should have...

    Hi all, In just over a month I'm going to Nepal for 3 weeks, and I'm very worried that without spending a ridiculous amount of money I'll be unable to record my time there. My main concerns are storage and battery life, as I'm unable to bring a laptop and will have limited access to electricity...

    Hi, my GoPro switches off by itself, after becoming extremely warm once the battery is put in. I dont even switch it on then it becomes so hot I can barely hold it. this causes the GoPro to switch itself off. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it the battery (it has been laying there for a...
  15. GoPro Hero to Hero 5
    Does anyone else find that the GoPro + battery BacPac often reports onscreen 2 or 3 bars of battery left on either battery, but you start shooting and all of a sudden it does it's "I'm out of power" beeping and turns off. I've had this happen quite a few times, it's nowhere near as reliable as...
  16. GoPro Hero to Hero 5
    How long does the Hero 4 black battery last with the WiFi On, but camera off? Background: I have a Hero 3 and only get just over 1 hour, and I need 2-3 hours really. Wondering does the latest Hero cameras solve this WiFi battery drain, such that you can have it in this state for several...
