    OEM Battery

    This is a spare battery that I purchased for my Hero7 GoPro for a total of three batteries to take on an extended trip to New Zealand. So far the battery works as expected and it's a good thing I had three since it seems like the batteries do not last long at all in the GoPro!! Before you know it the power is way down and time to change the battery for a full charge. It's a nice small package...the Hero7 and the batteries, but along with the small size is the reduced life/charge of the battery.

    A Necessary Accessory

    I wish Go Pros had better battery life. My Go Pro Hero 6 Black will give you about one hour of recording before a new battery is required. For any extended outings a new battery is pretty much mandatory. I would recommend getting one battery, and the dual battery charger (which comes with one more battery) and you should be in good shape. I don’t mess around with third party batteries, so the Go Pro battery is the way to go.

    Always a good idea to have an extra on hand

    Nothing really bad or exceptionally good to say about the battery. The camera seems to really burn through a single battery quickly, especially when connected to my phone via WiFi. I recommend always having an extra battery but I would actually recommend buying the GoPro dual charger ( AADBD-001) which comes with an extra battery as well as an extra type C USB cord and you can also keep your extra batteries stored inside the charger when not in use.

    Great in warm weather

    Cold weather tends to drain batteries when your GoPro camera is not on. I have to keep batteries inside my coat, next to my body to keep them warm before I decide to use them or they will be dead. I hope this is an issue that will be resolved in future models because I am very impressed with GoPro products.

    New HERO5 Black batteries

    From what I understand they were redesigned and are not backward compatible with previous Hero models. Recording in 4K will drain the battery alone in roughly 2 hours. It does not feel as through these batteries last very long, if you wish to record entire concerts which typically push that limit, it would be wise to carry 1-2 extra batteries or an external battery if you do not wish to pause recording.

    Works good, wish it lasted longer

    This product works but with my limited experience, and as I have read, all GoPros would be nicer if battery could last longer. This is my only experience so far with GoPro batteries. Lasts long enough for most things and cheap enough to buy a few extras though so no biggie. The battery is doing a lot of work and has to be smallish and light so not a deal breaker.

    GoPro Required

    I am disappointed in GoPro after spending $400 on the Hero 5 Black, I learned that only the GoPro labeled batteries will work which cost twice as much as the third party batteries that work fine in my Nikon DSLR, Fuji XP and a variety of other devices I have...When this GoPro dies, I will be looking to other manufactures of action cameras

    Bought for GoPro Hero 7 Black

    The batteries for the GoPro Hero Black does NOT last long. Am disappointed which is why I bought an extra battery. Otherwise, the camera itself is good but be warned, you will need at least 2 to 3 batteries if your going to film half a day, more if full day.

    Eliminates having to worry about battery life.

    Definitely recommend it for anyone planning to shoot with their GoPro a decent amount on vacation/during travel. Light and small, so it is easy to carry along. Nice to have a backup, just in case you forget to charge or are in an environment without an outlet. Only concern would be that the tab to pull out the battery feels a bit flimsy.

    Does what it’s intended too

    I found I didn’t ever really use the extra battery as much. When the camera wasn’t in use I kept it plugged to a portable battery pack. Worked like a charm. I reduced the rating by 1 star due to these batteries being different than the original. They have a divot on the side which catches when removing the battery.

    I bought extra batteries to use for my travels... you don't wanna miss a thing when you're out there! I used my GoPro cam for snorkeling and taking vids of my magnificent surroundings and having that extra GoPro battery is priceless!!

    I like the price for this battery. I thought they would be way more expensive based on how much most GoPro stuff is but at $19.00 I'll take it....maybe even a few extra. Besides that the battery life on these is pretty bad. Haven't really tested it out fully but these new batteries die very quickly.

    Decent Batteries

    The GoPro batteries are nice because they're small and easily fit anywhere. They hold an okay charge. If you'll be filming an entire day though, make sure you have 2 batteries because you'll likely go through both of them! They could hold a better charge, but overall not bad for what they do.

    Always need a spare battery.

    Not much to say about this, as it's a spare battery designed to work with the GoPro, and it does that. A small gripe, and this isn't so much the battery's fault as it is the design of the go Pro itself, but it's a little kludgy to get the battery in and out of the camera. But overall I'm satisfied.

    I had purchased knock off go pro batteries off of amazon, they were not as good and did not hold a charge. This lasted much longer but still the battery life is too short in my opinion less than an hour in cold weather :(

    These are good batteries are a necessity as the battery life is only about an hour. That's why I'm only giving four stars. The good thing is that the price is fair for the item.

    I have been very impressed at the battery life from the Hero 5 Black batteries. I shoot on 1080P w/60 fps. I got just over 2 hours of life w/ GPS turned off when I ran the Tough Mudder OCR. I had a super suit on it of course, but I was pleased at how well it did.

    GoPro batteries are a constant source of stress when using the cams. they just don't last that long. That said you have to go with the OEM in this case. The 3rd party batteries just don't work that well!

    when buying a gopro buying an extra battery is a must! the single battery just runs out way to fast especially when shooting in 4K. having the extra battery pack makes it very convenient to throw a new one in there and keep on going! a must buy for sure.

    Longer Battery Life

    I really like the footage that my GoPro Hero 5 shoots, however the battery life is not as good as I would like it to be. If you are considering getting one of the Hero 5s I would highly suggest getting multiple batteries as they only last for about 2 hours.
