hi,

yes, without any problem.

I use as well an hero7 battery.

the only odd thing is the "handle" that on hero7 battery is towards the door, a little gymnastic when you pull out.

 

when first insert, a message was displayed "use hero8 battery for full experience blablabla something". but I do not think it makes a difference, as both have the same capacity.

 

just me,

robert

Hi @niceoasis18120,

 

Yes, it should be compatible. 

Please check this link as well if you want to know more details about battery compatibility.
