    Good while it lasted

    I purchased this from BestBuy over a power bank as I preferred the form of it and it would attach to GoPro accessories whereas with a power bank it would have to be tethered all the time. I was getting ready to go on vacation to Akumal Mexico and thought this would be perfect for my new Hero 7 Black and it was… while it lasted. I took the camera in and out of it probably about 12 times to put in a GoPro Super Suit (I know this is rated as waterproof to the 30 some odd feet but didn’t feel like risking it) for when I went snorkeling/swimming. I went to take the GoPro out of the Digipower and the upper arm broke off at the corner for the top to side portion (see image with the red circle to indicate the area). I was pretty bummed and threw it away. I should have kept it and tried to send it to the manufacturer to see if it would be replaced under warranty but it didn’t occur to me as I had already had it for a couple of months and I didn’t realize it had a 1 year warranty. I may purchase another one as this may have been a one off incident, it did perform well and the battery lasted forever. I did not have any skins or anything like that on the GoPro and the fit was snug, I didn’t have to force it on to close the locking clamp. My only caution would be to make sure to not use too much force to lock the clamp.

    "File Repaired" Error and Overheating

    I used the Re-Fuel while golfing and I kept getting the "File Repaired" error intermittently after 1 hour of use - I have the GoPro7 Black. 30 Mins later, the error happened EVERY time I tried to record. I thought at first that something was wrong with the GoPro7 Black, so I swapped out the camera with another GoPro7 Black - yes, I have two. The error still came on. So, I stopped using both GoPro7 Blacks and the Re-Fuel; used my iPhone X to record the rest of my round. I took both GoPro7 Blacks and the Re-Fuel home and tried to repeat the error. I factory reset one GoPro7 Black and reformatted the SD card; the other GoPro7 Black I left as-is. I fully charged the Re-Fuel and attached it to the as-is GoPro7 Black and got the "File Repaired" error again - no surprise there. I fully charged the Re-Fuel Pack again and attached it to the reset/reformat GoPro7 Black and got the "File Repaired" error again - surprised and disappointed. I really want Re-Fuel to work since it would make my life easier on golf course, so I'm going to assume this one was faulty and I'm going to buy another one with hopes of it working.

    Out of the box it is straight forward and easy to mount the GoPro Hero 5 Pro, in my case, into the pack. My first run with the Digipower pack went better than expected. It was great for time lapse and a day long shoot. For action shots on a bike or something jarring, it would need a good strong mount. It is heavy and needs good support. I also purchased a new suction cup mount at the same time. I mounted the Digipower and suction mount on the inside on the truck windshield. After several bumps on pavement, it would release. That is not the fault of the battery pack. I'm just stating it for reference for an example of usage and application. I have not, as of yet, tested the waterproof abilities. But I am going snorkeling soon. I'll let you know.

    Power for Hours

    This battery pack is great for extended battery life for longer recording sessions. It is a little bulky, that’s about the only downside, but totally worth it to get more video/pics. I have not tested out the waterproof functionality so I can’t say for sure how well it works. Overall I’ve spent about 3-3.5 consecutive hours recording with this thing; whereas with a regular battery I get around 1.5-2 hours recording time on the highest quality. I’d definitely recommend this if you’re looking to do longer shoots.

    Great accessory for long-form GoPro recording

    This product really works! Charge your GoPro battery, charge the Digipower device, install and mount your GoPro setup and you're ready for much longer continuous recording times. I purchased 6 of them for a video shoot and recording in 4K at 24fps I was able to get almost 6 hours of recording time using a 128GB media card. Works with regular GoPro accessory mounts or standard 1/4-20 thread mounts. Great product.

    I purchased this after I had my gopro die during a concert. I had the gopro mounted to the drum set and it recorded for just over an hour before it died. Now granted I had other cameras that got great shots, I realized that I needed something more reliable. I found this following that show and it has made its money back and then some. It does weigh noticeably more but if you need to record for a long time it does the job. Plus you can run off of AC power no issues. Only downside is that it is not usbc.

    This case does exactly what it's supposed to do. It's a bit bulky but since we all know that Gopro batteries don't last long; I'd say this is a must have. The only reason I'm giving 4 stars is because this case isn't screen protector friendly. My glass screen protector lifts every time I use this case.

    Go Pro without changing battery every hour

    This thing works great. I went on vacation last week for 10 days and did not have to charge the battery once. What it actually does is charge the go pro battery. It keeps it charged for up to 8 hrs at least. I used mine for about 30 - 40 minutes a day of actually recording and never had to recharge once. Highly recommend.

    I bought as a extra battery back up for my go pro. Well when you turn it on it gets the GoPro real warm to where it says it’s going turn off because it’s hot. I suggest use as a back up when the battery is charging and use like a external battery.

    I got this for my hero 7 black. And it does it’s job perfectly, giving you 3 to 4 times the battery life. The only obvious disadvantage is it doubles the size and weight of your GoPro. Bottom line, for just over the price of a second GoPro battery, this is the way to go.

    This battery pack is great. Keep in mind it's a little heavy especially if using a selfie stick but it really comes in handy especially if you don't want to be changing batteries and you can turn it on/off when needed.

    I like this product because it will keep the GoPro going for 9 hrs plus. It is worthy the price and you don’t have to do individual batteries, although it is a huge housing I think! It’s still worth it.

    Can’t film with hero 7 black

    I was making a film with the hero 7 black which it says it works with. A couple seconds into filming it would stop filming. I guess the only thing it’s good for is to give power to the 7 black as it’s off. Total hassle

    Awesome product my GoPro Hero 6 battery would not last long enough to record my kids hockey game until I found this product. This takes the pitiful battery life of a GoPro and makes it last several hours so you don't have to worry about missing those important moments.

    This extended battery is a must for the GoPro 7. I was able to make it through an all day volleyball tournament. It works great. Easy to use. I will actually be buying another one as a backup. Great Product.

    This really helps with the battery time for hero 7 black. Without this you might get 45 minutes of recording. With this shooting 4k you'll get about 6 hours. And it's not cumbersome, awesome accessory

    We were barely getting a full baseball game recorded on our GoPro when I started searching for options. I bought this and it more than doubled the length of recording time. It is a must have.

    This battery pack is AWESOME!! It's lasted more than 6 hrs. I don't have a micro sd card big enough to keep up. It's perfect for capturing video all day long and even better for hours of timelapse pics. I highly recommend.
