Well either don't use 3rd party batteries in your GoPro, or contact the vendor of the 3rd party batteries to make a complaint.  Since these batteries aren't made or supported by GoPro, there's nothing GoPro can do regarding 3rd party batteries.

Re: 3rd Party batteries don't work in hero 8

I wanted to purchase extra batteries for the camera but because of a new shipping policy (maby just for europe) GoPro cant sell me standalone batteries and I cant find a store that has them in stock yet. For this reason I purchased Wasabi Power batteries and haven´t run into any issues yet. But I havent tried shooting in all modes using these batteries yet.
