Re: GoPro Hero 6 Black First Impressions

Hi Daniel

Many thanks for your reply. Did you mean that red light takes time to come on when charging first time?

I saw two video post on unboxing and set up and they both had red light turned on as soon as they put camera on charge.

Re: GoPro Hero 6 Black First Impressions

Are you able to turn the camera on using the side power/mode button. If so, what does the battery % read? There is a delay from when you plug it in until the light turns on. If the battery is fully discharged this can take a considerable amount of time.
