Battery life

I have a hero 5 black and I can charge the battery over night and in the morinig pack it up when its fully charged and within a couple hours its dead. When I pack it i always pull the battery from the camera and it still dies. Is this common problem?

Re: Battery life

HI @gshock2500hd

 

How are you charging the camera?

Please make sure you are using a recommended charger.

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!
