Re: GoPro 8 battery not charging fully

Yes, you can use 5V 1-2A.

What percentage is it charging to? If its just that the red light isn't turning off, it really shouldn't be too much of an issue. This usually happens with 5V 1A and/or USB-C 2.0 cables. It wont hurt the camera or battery. If the battery isn't reaching 100%, you might need to replace it.

Re: GoPro 8 battery not charging fully

you can use a higher Amperage 3 A won't hard, still going to charge.

 

If the  lower the amp you may start to drain your bat then charge.
