Battery only charges to 98%

[ Edited ]

Good afternoon! I have two cameras gopro hero 7 black. One of them only charges to 98%. I tested with a different battery, drain the battery fully, charged it at a wall socket/USD, last update v1.70. LED is red and battery stays at 98%. Should I take the camera to the store?

Without SD-card is good! I use Sand Disk Extreme 128 GB

Hi @ktagintsev

 

This should be cleared by the last update.

Try re-flashing the software. Please refer to this link and follow the steps on "Update your camera manually".

Let us know how it goes.
You may also reach out to our Support Team for assistance.
