Is it a known "bug" or "feature" that when connecting an external battery to a gopro hero 6 that is already fully charged, wifi is disabled?
Will there be an update to correct this non-desired action?

My Hero 6 is on fw 1.51 and I am "charging" via an external battery and the wifi (at least to my GoPro App) works fine.
I say "charging" because I ran a 4 hour continous record test (4k @ 25p W) and even with the external battery charging, the internal battery ran down to 10% so I am wondering if a specific external power bank is needed?

Try using a 25W charger or a portable battery with 3amp output. Gopro has a fast charger for $50 but I was able to fast charge the Hero 6 using my Macbook charger. I think it's called USB C Power Delivery. Anker also sells one with USB C output.
