I got a Hero 7 for chritmas and I have noticed that they battery on my unit is well shocking to be honest. If i charge it during the day to 100% if i leave it unplugged over night by the time the follwing morning rolls around its dead.
I have taken off all the auto comands and Wi-fi and has made a slight difference but will still drop from 100% to 10% if not zero while switched off. I have run all the way through the camera to check it is switch off and i cnnot figure out why the battery is running so badly.
this battery issue has also brough around a settings issue everytime the battery dies the camera resets it self which to be honest isnt a functonal issue its just really annoying.
Nay helo would be amazing, I llove the product but this is starting to grate on me.

Sorry to know that.
Please try to reset your camera to factory settings.
After that install new firmware: https://gopro.com/help/articles/how_to/software-update-instructions-for-hero7-cameras
