Yes it has to start some where, where you started wans just grab and go? most of of done that? sd card is the heart of the camera, if it is not working right all else fails, bu thte brains is hte actual camera itself, not set up right everything else fails and that is what we sae failurecause battery life is not working for the OP ?

As I'm sure you are aware Fish, the camera scans the SD card for compatibility, storage space and errors. With the wrong card, this often leads to excessive battery drain and heating. While I also agree that resetting the internal firmware is a good place to start (I think that's what you're saying) and is the primary suggestion I gave ("In either case, reformat the card in your computer leaving the name (label) blank. Download the manual update "), using an approved SD card will not only trouble shoot this issue (if in fact there is one) but also help prevent future errors from popping up. 99+% of every "issue" that is posted here is corrected by using a recommended SD card.

I start with no sd card getto learn your camera, which you are. what are you going to do to get a better battery consumption, set up your camera and find the best settings . when you done that, then we can look at why 2% off the bat is gone.
All I am saying is it starts somewhere

I prefer to take the opportunity to educate people on this sooner rather than later.
As far as battery consumption with various settings, please see the links provided. In most cases you gain about ten minutes by having options turned off, which is not how most people want to use, not why they bought, the Hero5 cameras.

I simply show you in under five minutes I lose 2% just like that, IT IS NORMAL. I also show i the two cards I use, THEY WORK JUST FINE. it is not about sd cards, it is not about knowing it all, it is about simply get what works for you. hope the video helped out. never punning just showing
