Battery drains fast

Hello , my go bro battery drains so fats , it went from 97 to 50% in only 10 minutes of using,, my camera is hero 5 black I just bought it 3 days ago from Costco and the date written on the battery is 2018-08-21 does than mean its expired ? How can I replace it?

Hi @foggybeach54306,

 

Have you tried updating the camera already?

 

Please try to install the firmware manually first. 

Here's how: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zebfWrf_ebE&t=11s

 

Or check this website.
