2A powerbank charging’s effect of battery lifespan

Good day
Will the regular use of a 5V-2A output powerbank shorten the lifespan of a GoPro Hero 5 Session battery?
Thank you!

Re: 2A powerbank charging’s effect of battery lifespan

Hello @foggystar75107

 

Interesting question! The rating 5V/2A is actually the recommended output for charging a HERO5 Session camera so as long as charging is done properly, there should not be any problem with its lifespan. You can check out this article for more details on charging the camera battery. Hope this helps.

 

Cheers, 
Marius
