If you are having battery issues:
1) make sure you are using a recommended SD card
2) manually update your camera (while not specified, it's possible battery improvements are included in "General Bug Fixes")
3) Format your card in the camera
4) Factory reset the camera
5) Do not leave batteries in the camera for extended periods of time.

Firmware 1.80 so far so good, my suggestion would be to anybody thinking of buying a GoPro is always buy a last years model at a discount, I say this because it’s took almost a year to get a working firmware update, the Hero 8 is out in a few weeks, I could have waited and got a working hero 7 black at a discount instead of an unworking premium priced hero 7 11 months back.
