    I have yet to have a problem with any of my GoPro branded batteries. I have seen several reviews where individuals have been using third party batteries for their Hero5’s. I never have been on the band wagon for third party batteries after a bad experience several years ago in which a third party battery swelled up in the battery compartment on a digital camera. From what I understand, GoPro released a firmware update that disables the Hero5 from using third party batteries. These batteries are not that expensive and seem to hold up rather well. I have a Hero4 Black and bought three batteries for that rig and they are still going strong to this day. I’m assuming that these Hero5 batteries will hold up in the same manner and provide years of reliable service.

    UPDATE: I have purchased a second battery, to have with me just in case... I do recommend purchasing the gopro dual port Supercharger, it charges the batteries much quicker than the usb into the computer... Now, after testing this battery and the original, I found that recording video continuosly in 2K, 30frames per second, my battery lasted 1hr. 25min. before it showed only approx. 3min. left before it would shut off, it probably would last longer if I did not have other things going, like image stabilizer, etc... so being a battery that just came out..., this is probably where it should be... I would recommend this.

    There are many cheaper batteries that you could get but I would go with the GoPro brand batteries as you could damage your GoPro with the cheaper brands. Also you just take out the risk of having to deal with errors on the cheaper batteries. Yes GoPro brand batteries are a bit more expensive but would rather not having to deal with batteries issues during a recording or time out with the camera.

    Extra battery is key!

    If you've ever used a gopro then you know how annoying it is to be in the middle of an adventure with a dead battery. In the past I've bought off name batteries and they work ok but there is some sort of communication between the battery and camera which doesn't work right with them. Like the camera won't show battery life so you don't know how much juice is left. Super annoying and never happens with the gopro brand pack. For $20 it's a pretty good deal too.

    GoPro Battery for Hero5

    Bought two of these batteries for backups for my vacation last summer and they worked flawlessly. I was going to try other aftermarket brands but i read too many issues and problems with them to take a chance. I didnt miss a beat while i was on vacation with these batteries and would recommend these to my family and friends. I would not try and save a few dollars on aftermarket Batteries and end up missing out on some great photos or videos because of battery issues.

    GoPro extra battery, five STAR rating

    Loving my new GoPro Hero 6 so much I had to get extra batteries so that I could record and take pictures all day. I purchased three extra batteries for my two GoPro Hero 6 cameras but have never used more than two per camera in a whole twelve hours of on off and left on for time lapse video and pictures. I would highly recommend at least one extra battery because they take quite a while to charge and it will come in extremely handy on those long days out shooting footage.

    I needed back up batteries for the gopro session five i just bought, picked these up and they carry the same life that the original does. they appear to be exactly the same. no complaints they work fine and i would recommend if you are using a gopro. make sure you get the correct kind, i mistakenly picked up the wrong ones for an older gopro at first, returned and exchanged without a hitch. they are clearly labeled on the package but i just wasn't paying close enough attention.

    Sometimes it's better to buy the OEM

    I have no complaints with the OEM GoPro batteries. I also fly drones but some of the "improved" third party batteries DON't have the same circuitry and batteries may fail due to inferior components/specs. They promise more time in the air but 3 months later, you need a new battery. Try to get warranty! GoPro cameras are quality products. They wouldn't be on top of the sport cam market with inferior battery products. Enough said.

    Must Have for GoPro 6

    If you own the GoPro 6 (or your GoPro 5 is over a year old)....this is a must. On my recent snowboarding trip the battery only lasted about 4 hours (shooting 4k). The extra battery allowed me to make it through the whole day (assuming you memory card can hold all your great shots...recommend ExtremePro 128gb). Battery is small and easy to carry in pocket for when you are ready to exchange. Nice fabric tab to allow for easy removal.

    Just started with gopro 7. I purchased 6 of these for foreign travel requirements and found the price was on point with other discounters. The battery is ok for the camera, and as reviewed by other users does not last forever...but 1hr record time on avg is ok by me as I usually prepare battery swaps when recording anyway.

    Works Great with the New GoPro 5 Black

    Extra Batteries for the GoPro 5 Black are a must because they generally last for about an hour or so of 1080p/60fps video recording but can be much less if you keep the rear LCD panel on continuously or have the GoPro connected to your phone via. Bluetooth or WiFi. The GoPro's built-in GPS also drains the battery much quicker or if you shoot in 4K video. Also consider the GoPro Battery Charger that charges two of these batteries at a time.

    Battery seems better than previous models

    This battery is working great and is priced right in my opinion. On my Hero 5 Black, I seem to get better life than earlier models - this is on 1080P, 60 FPS, and voice control on. I've had no heating issues or bulging after a few complete charges. I am also surprised that the cold weather is not draining it as quickly like earlier models used to.

    Necessity for longer recording sessions

    To be expected, the replacement/spare Hero 5, 6 and 7 battery is exactly what's needed for longer recording sessions. Truthfully, I can't imagine not having 3-5 for an afternoon of shooting. If you don't have a spare, I'd encourage everyone to at least pickup one additional battery. Nothing worse than having to cut recording short because of a dead battery.

    There’s nothing like the original lithium ion batteries from GoPro. I purchased some off brands for less thinking that they would surfice but they started to discharge on their own and give inaccurate charge readings. I learned my lesson and now will stick to original GoPro batteries for reliable charge and performance.

    Im an amateur at goPro. I'm starting to love every minute of this little bad boys. But i'm finding out that when my goPro is on standby for too long, obviously my battery dies. that's why you need back ups. this batteries is a must-have. it just works. plug it in and you're up and running again. there's really nothing much too it. so far, it holds it's charge. no complains.

    I do a lot of motorcycle riding in many scenic locations. My GoPro is a must on these trips. Therefore I needed to ensure I had enough battery life to complete the journey. This battery has not let me down. I am planning a cross country trip in 2018 and plan to buy another, maybe two, to ensure I always have a fresh battery that gives me hours of recording time. Get yourself one today!

    nothing really special about it though, but it has good build quality and somehow reliable. i got 2 extra of these when i bought my hero 6. you will deff need extra batteries for your gopro, especially if you are planning to go on vacation. whats worst than running out battery for your gopro when you are right on the very spot that you wanted to film on your vacation?

    Just got a new GoPro Hero 5 camera and wanted a second battery. I have found that the new batteries do not last that long. So far the battery has lasted for what I needed but if you're in the market for these you might want to get 2-3. The good thing about these is the price. For a Go Pro products they are not that expensive, setting you back around $20. That's a huge plus.

    The battery is the first thing that goes out on my camera since I keep a huge SD Card and use the 4K definition on the GoPro Hero 7 Black camera. So having spare batteries is an absolute must. Purchasing these, which are reasonably priced, make for an easy way to keep the action going.

    You need a spare battery

    I bought a spare GoPro battery to have on hand during a motorcycle trip because one battery won't last all day of frequent video collection. Spare battery helps keep the camera going. I also bought a larger battery pack and charger socket to recharge in the tank bag. I could recharge one while using the other.
