I have a GoPro Hero 6 black and the battery has a very tight fit in the housing. In fact when I tried to gently pull out the battery, the ribbon came off. I managed to carefully lever out the battery, and make sure I don't dent anything, but I'm afraid it will happen again with another battery.
Is it supposed to be so tight? I can't see the point.
Can I get the battery replaced due to the fact that the ribon detached?

I have a similar issue actually. There is a sticker on the inside of the battery compartment that hasnt been put on correctly. While mine is tight, I never felt like I was going to tear a tab off of my battery.

I tried glueing on the ribbon too, but it came off again.
But this is not a solution, it's a temporary fix at best.
Things should fit properly.
This is a design error, and I think the problem is the stickers inside the battery compartment - it seems to me GoPro didn't take into consideration the thickness of the stickers, which is causing too much friction for the battery.
I use the GoPro for skiing, and the last thing I want to do is fiddle around with the battery in freezing weather, or have the battery get stuck while on the mountain.
