Re: GoPro Hero 9 Black Battery Life

[ New ]

I agree. My battery is draining super fast... not 2 hours and 11 minutes as reviews say for 4k.

Fully charged battery shows 95% and when ready to shoot video, it shows 1 hour remaining while it should show 2 hours stated by gopro specs...

It's going to depend on your settings.  Hypersmooth setting, high bitrate vs low bitrate, FPS, screens on vs off, GPS on vs Off, connected to app........ there's a huge amount of settings and things that will drain your battery faster.  So expecing your battery to last for 2 hours 11 minutes @4K without taking into account the rest of the settings is a flawed way of thinking.

I obviously read through everything you already said in the first page. YOU DONT HAVE TO REPEAT IT!

I am merely adding the vote that battery life is not on par with the "reports" and it was out of box - really weird of you to jump on each comment. SO FAR all I DID is shot few seconds videos, etc. mostly in 1080/30... so the battery should be longer, eh.
