Extended Battery GoPro 8

Any news on any company making extended batteries for it? I don't want to have to carry around a power back

Nope, in fact I don't recall GoPro making any extended packs for their camera's since the GoPro Hero 2.  Other battery packs have been supplied by 3rd party manufacturers.

Re: Extended Battery GoPro 8

hi,

I saw for earlier series aftermarket external batteries 4500mA/h.

the mounting is supposedly dirt/dust proof...as the charging port is exposed, I'm not sure about water resistance.

 

one normal  GoPro battery is 1220mA/h.

I have four, all GoPro8 batteries - with the high current capability.

and I carry all with me.

with or without the dual charger and a slim power bank to charge a pair of batteries in the meantime.

in this way, I have more than that 4h the external battery can give you...

 

If the change of the battery is not a problem for you, I think it is a better idea.

 

just me,

robert

Can't crawl out on the wing of my plane and change the battery!
