3rd Party Battery Charger for Hero6?

Hi All!

 

We are planning on get a Hero6 very soon and want to make sure that we have everything that we need.  I've read all of the posts in regards to using 3rd party batteries and how they may not work after a new firmware update so I plan to buy official batteries.  However, is there any reason that a 3rd party battery charger should not be used to charge the GoPro batteries?  I see some double chargers for $15 on Amazon.  I would rather buy that along with the $30 battery rather than pay $70 for one battery and official charger unless of course it could damage my battery.

 

Thoughts?

 

Thanks!

The difference is going to be if something happens to your battery or charger GoPro will not warranty it if you are using 3rd party. If you stick with GoPro OEM products they will stand by it and replace damaged items under warranty.
