Capture the Action With a GoPro Battery

GoPro cameras are designed to go where you go, providing a hands-free way to document your active lifestyle. Whether you're attaching the GoPro to your bike, using it while you ski, or simply recording a tour of your favorite local hiking trail, you'll need a fresh GoPro battery to make sure you don't miss a thing. Here's what you need to know about choosing, changing, and caring for your GoPro battery.

What type of battery does a GoPro camera use?

The HD Hero GoPro camera comes equipped with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack. This has been the standard in GoPro's product line since 2014. It features durable construction designed to withstand the vigorous activities and sporting events you record with your GoPro camera and charges while connected to the camera through a USB port. This battery is also used in the 360-degree GoPro Fusion camera. The Digital Hero 5 (2006) uses two AAA batteries.

What size battery do you need for your GoPro camera?

Battery capacity is as follows for common GoPro camera models:

  • Hero Session, Hero5 Session: Integrated 1000 mAh lithium-ion battery
  • Hero4: Replaceable 1060 mAh lithium-ion battery
  • Hero4: Replaceable 1060 mAh lithium-ion battery
  • Hero5, Hero6, Hero 2018, Hero7 Black: Replaceable 1220 mAh lithium-ion battery
  • Hero Fusion: Replaceable 2620 mAh lithium-ion battery
How long will a fully charged GoPro battery last?

You can find a range of new and preowned GoPro batteries on eBay with various battery lives. The affordable GoPro Fusion battery can record continuously for 75 minutes in 5.2K 30 mode and 60 minutes in 3K 60 mode. The GoPro Hero7 Black battery lasts for 45 to 90 minutes. The Silver and White versions of this model have a built-in battery that lasts for 106 to 146 minutes. The Hero6 battery lasts for 70 to 110 minutes depending on shooting resolution. The Hero5 battery lasts for about two hours. The Hero5 Session battery lasts for about one hour and 35 minutes. The GoPro Hero4 ranges from one hour and 20 minutes to one hour and 45 minutes depending on the model. Keep in mind that performance varies depending on conditions, settings, age of the battery, and other factors.

How should you care for your GoPro battery?

You can extend the life of your camera battery with proper care. If you're using the GoPro outside in the cold or in cold water, battery life will be shortened. The more features that are enabled on the camera while you're recording, the shorter the life of the battery charge. Allowing the battery to completely drain before recharging will improve its overall life and performance. Use an official GoPro charger and charge through the camera rather than by USB for best results.
