GoPro 6 battery

Instead of searching through a ton of pages for the answer, Are any of the aftermarket batteries any good?  or suggested?  Heard Wasabi may be good but just looking for suggestions and best place to buy.  What about after market chargers also?

Re: GoPro 6 battery

The Wasabi batteries are ok for a short period then they degrade after a few months or after heavy rotation cycles of charging/depleting.

I prefer and have found longer success with the LimeFuel 1120mAh / 4.4Wh 3.8V batteries.  They hold more power and last much longer than any of the Wasabi batteries.

Re: GoPro 6 battery

Where do you find these limefuel batteries? The only ones I can find are the Hero 4 or less on their site.  Maybe I'm missing something.

 

My GoPro Hero 6 batteries will only charge to "67%" and even then it gets to a point where the battery is charging inside the camera, but it actually loses power.

 

This who charging the gopro batteries is becomming comical to me.

Re: GoPro 6 battery

Limefuel batteries are made by a 3rd party so they are only found on Ebay and Amazon.  The GoPro battery charging issue is one that many have documented and its the reason why there are so many 3rd party folks making batteries that last longer.

Re: GoPro 6 battery

Beware of aftermarket batteries and chargers if your camera is still in warranty.

Re: GoPro 6 battery

The HERO5 Black and HERO6 Black cameras require GoPro-branded batteries to function.
