Re: Battery drain on Hero4

Indeed, It's a pain to have to keep setting the time and date and worse if you forget to do so and end up with recordings with the wrong date.

 

So a few questions:  

 

Is this happening with official GoPro batteries or are these some other brand?

Is the power drain constant?  ( I would suggest powering on and off the camera every hour and tracking the drop in power).

 

Your other solution may be to leave the battery in the camera, but just plug in the camera to charge after every 12 hours or so.  I myself found it handy to keep 2 spare batteries for every 1 camera I have.  That way I can always swap out batteries and keep spares charging should I need em.
