    When you have the Karma drone. It’s very useful and makes great videos and can see very cool things. But the battery doesn’t last long. If and when you find yourself outside using your drone. You will need a second battery because it will leave you stuck half way if you don’t have a spare.

    GP Drone is a dud... a lot to do with battery life

    I bought the Go Pro Karma because of its all-inclusive packaging and left the DJI drones that have worked well for me. The battery life on the Go Pro Karma is dismal at best and extremely limits any type of filmmaker from gathering enough footage. If anyone tried to bring the drone to a remote location, they'd need a ton of backup batteries.

    Extra batteries needed

    If you have the Karma drone you Need extra batteries. Period. When you launch the drone it will say you have 18.5 minutes but in reality it's about 16 minutes because Karma will return to you with about 2.5 minutes left. If you think of the amount of time driving and then hiking to a location to film, one battery is simply not gonna be enough.

    I use three of these batteries with my GoPro Karma drone. Depending on the weather conditions and how you plan on using the drone, you're looking at a max of about 20min in the air per battery. They are quick and easy to switch out and get the drone back in the air in a matter of minutes. I only wish they last longer.

    Although this battery is the OEM replacement for my Karma drone that I purchased. I am expecting it to have the same life expectancy as the one included. I have not had a chance to use it yet. But, Best Buy had the best price, by far on this battery.

    I don't know if my battery wasn't recalled or if my drone wasn't recalled but it appeared the battery fell out of the drone causing damage to my drone my camera and the battery . My wife and I both agreed the battery fell from the drone and hit the ground first . The front of the drone seemed to rear up as the battery dislodged.

    Check date of manufacture

    The battery was dead when I got it and tried charging it for more than 3 hours. No light came about and it won't charge. The date of manufacture was back in 2016. It must have died on the shelf and I have no choice but to return it. Then I got another one and it was the same thing all over again.

    Great Way to Prolong Flight Time

    I purchased this item to increase my flight time with my GoPro Karma drone. I love flying it, but only get about 18 minutes out of a full charge! With this new battery, the flight time is doubled and only takes a quick change out.

    These additional GoPro Karma (Aircraft/Drone) Batteries are pretty much a necessity to take (and make) full & appropriate productive use of the investment in a GoPro Karma Aircraft ! We purchased two of the additional batteries, and that seems a pretty good start at meeting our basic Karma power needs.....

    Extra Battery

    I bought this battery because the Karma only gets about 18 or so minutes on one battery and I wanted to be able to reload a fresh battery to have more flying time. It is adequate enough and I would highly recommend buying an extra battery or maybe two if you can afford the $100 price tag.

    So the Karma Battery is hit or miss, GoPro has a issue with some of there batteries not fitting in the Karma, other then that the battery is very easy to insert and take out of th drone as long as you ended up with a correct battery.. I went threw 8 to get 3 that would actually fit properly.

    Spare battery a must for Karma

    A Karma battery lets you fly 18 min according to the controler's display. You need to subtract 3 min flight time because that is the critical low battery power that triggers Karma's auto-return. So, actual flight time per battery up to 15 min in the real world. The battery charges in about 1 hour.

    Look, GoPro Karma is a great value (no matter what you think about the drone) given the inclusion of the grip and the camera itself. So it's a little bit of a bummer to spend $100 on a battery, but it's worth it, almost necessary. 18 minutes its not long flying a drone on one battery!

    Not much to say here, a battery either works well or it doesn’t. This one does what it says, and the price is on par with every other vendor. The nice thing about getting it from Best Buy is the rewards points, the instant gratification and the customer service.

    Must-have for GoPro Karma Drone

    This battery is mandatory to operate the GoPro Karma Drone. It has enough lifespan that you really need (4) of these to keep the drone in the air for about 1.5 hours of filming time before you are waiting on a battery to charge. I have (4) of these batteries for my setup.

    The battery for GoPro Karma does what it's meant to do - power your drone. It can also charge your Karma Grip and Karma Remote using the supplied cables - a nice additional feature. $100 bucks is a bit pricey for a battery, but comparable to other drone batteries on the market.

    Powerful battery

    First off, if you are buying a Karma drone you need to have a second battery. You don't want to go out for footage and only get to shoot 20 minutes of video. The battery itself charges very fast- in about an hour. You can also use the battery to charge the controller or a GoPro camera

    When I bought the drone, I also purchased extra battery knowing they dont last long. I put it inside the drone and it would not fit all the way in. Returned it back to BestBuy they had to order one because they was out of stock. When I got the next battery it worked fine.

    It is obviously disappointing only getting about twenty minutes of fly time on a full battery charge. It is to be expected though since nothing runs forever. This is a must have for continued flying of the drone. Would be nice when technology advances to get more flight time.

    Handy to have extra

    We just got our drone two months ago and so far we’re very pleased with it. It pays to have an extra battery especially when you take longer to film that expected or didn’t quite get that shot you wanted. Also nice to have an extra for a beautiful day to film.
