Charging question?

How many hours will it take if i use only usb port 5.0(1.55A) to my go pro7? What do you suggest to use for charging the go pro7 black?

Re: Charging question?

It may be associated with a know issue with the HERO7 Black camera - that of its battery not detecting full charge. A new firmware is set to be released this month to fix the issue. You may watch out for updates through https://gopro.com/help/articles/Block/Software-Update-Release-Information . Thanks!

Re: Charging question?

It depends on which power source the camera is connected. It can take up to 4 hours if the computer is used and up to 2 hours if a USB wall charger is used. This article presents recommended chargers for the HERO7 Black camera. Hope this helps. Thanks!
