With my new Go Pro 6 i'm limited to a 3 hour time lapse as you can only use the internal battery. If you add an external battery or power source the camera will charge the internal battery but will not allow you to record footage at the same time. Can anyone help me resolve this limitation on time lapse shooting? Many thanks!

Hi all, thank you for all your advise. I've now solved the problem. It was my (low quality) 32GB memory card that was corrupting the footage and swithing off the camera. Now I'm using a Sandisk 64GB Extreme Plus card and I have no problems doing extended time lapse using an external power cable. You also don't have to take out the battery, i leave it in the camera.

If you're running power via the USB, is there a way to remove the door to the usb port? Because the flap is sticking out, I can't use my mounting stuff.
Is it possible to run power AND have the mount around the camera?

@gumby1134 - Yes, you can remove that side door. Here's a video I did for the HERO5, but it's the exact same process for the HERO6. Once the door is removed, you can put the camera in the frame and connect the USB-C supplying the power through the hole in the side of the frame.
