    The best part is the extra battery

    While it's nice to be able to charge 2 batteries at once I was shocked to find that it took somewhere in the neighborhood of about 6 or 7 hours. It takes only about 90 minutes or so to charge when the camera (GoPro Hero 7 Black) is plugged in. I could see if it took 3 or 4 hours but nearly double that negates any possibly of having only 3 batteries in total. You'll need a 4th one. At least it includes an battery. Still, the ability to have at least partially charged batteries at the ready while using the camera is useful. I would still recommend it as most reviews of aftermarket batteries and/or chargers are usually negative.

    Not sure... could be part of the battery issue

    So, maybe my charger is the reason my batteries don't hold a charge but they take forever to charge and drain ridiculously fast. All 3 batteries did it so I'm not sure. The camera is awesome though so, for shots in the elements... moisture, wind, salty air, sand, snorkeling, scuba diving, drone work... this camera really does its job! You can blow the shots or video up, and make yourself some sweet footage. It picks up audio so well, we could hear gray whales coming up for air, blowing, splashing flukes, surfacing, etc...from quite a distance out in the ocean. Unbelievable!

    Reliable OEM Charger

    Let me start by saying that I never buy aftermarket anything. I say that to quantify my overall rating and what my expectations are with anything I purchase. This charger worked as advertised, but it is very slow when connected as intended to a USB port. The time it took to charge was way too long. I have since charged with a USB adapter in the wall and it charges much faster. The instructions don't say you can't do this but it doesn't say you can either.

    Where are the LED indicators that the unit is charging. A display of the bateria is all you get when its plugged in. If you unplug it you get the same display. You don't know for sure if the unit is charging. Once it dies you are caring a useless item. You will be back to turning units on manually. I guess GoPro does not think that you go mountain biking all day? But don't forget your special connector or else no chance to even think about recharging it.

    Meets the description as per specs. It would be nice to package with high speed charger. Instead of including 1 battery, it would nice logical to include 2 for each slot. Another “nice to have” would be a longer cable to connect to the charger. You can always buy a 3rd party cord; but it seems that GoPro went cheap with short cable. Overall it’s what you need; just the few “nice to haves.”

    well i have the Hero4 model and went to get a GoPro charger and did as you see but it's the wrong one, It's a GoPro why so many types of battery's they are the same size, Just say'n, Really, wish a company would consider the people who pay 600 to 1000 dollars for their products to make it more consumer friendly, will go back and get right charger for Hero4.

    Does the job, but battery life seems short

    The charger and spare battery are a great convenience if you anticipate long days of shooting. I got for a road/hiking trip. I did videos from the car dashboard, highlights from hikes, and some stills over an 8hr day, and that used up 3 of these batteries. Charge time is adequate but not lightning fast

    The batteries don't like the cold. I'm not talking negative degrees either. Im talking high 30's. I can't use my new go pro snowmobiling because the batteries die ridiculously fast. The batteries should be tougher for an outdoor action camera.

    Used this on a trip, at the end of the day we just pulled out the spent battery and droped it in the charger. Its nice haveing two batteries and being able too drop them both in with out having to swap them when ones full. Only issue i had was with the cord length, the charger has to be so close to the outlet.

    Back to the drawing board on the batteries I'm afraid, the battery doesn't hold a charge for very long in my opinion, especially in colder temps. Guess you guys have some work to do until then I don't have much of a choice but to recommend the product...

    We purchased this charger to use with our GoPro then realized we didn't get the right one. We had it past the return date so we are unable to return it to get the correct one. My only recommendation is make sure you have the correct one before purchased.

    Overall it’s fine but 2 drawbacks 1) Takes a bit long. A few hours 2) Has a separate charging cable so one more thing to remember. But one of the best options out there so yes, I would buy it again.

    This a GoPro battery charger that plus into a USB port or USB wall adaptor. It wasn't very clear that I did not plug into the wall, nor that it actually comes with a spare battery. It does the job.

    I bought this as a back up for when I went traveling and I feel like it didn’t charge as fast as I would’ve like it to.

    You will need an extra battery and charger if you do any long videos. These are well built but a bit over priced.

    Works as you would expect. Only reason for three start is price. There are lots of third party options out there for half the price and almost the same performnace. i.e Wasabi

    If you own a GoPro, you need this. This charges two batteries at a time, but only comes with one battery, they should work on making charge faster and provide two batteries.

    The battery could have better indicator when it is fully charged and a power supply with it , not just the cable, would have been great but other than that ok.
