It is a different sized battery so you will not be able to swap the two.

That's a shame as would have got it but may as well wait now as 2 hour battery life won't even film one of my rides and spare battery's are likely to be hard to get from day 1 😔 looks like I'm sticking with my 4black as have 2 spares for that.

I'm sure the extra batteries already on the accessory page will be available on day one (Oct 2) when the Hero5 goes on sale.

The OEM batteries are less than $20 but if you want to get an unwarrantied knock off battery, I doubt it will take very long for smarter or wasabi to offer them.
