GoPro Hero5 Session Wifi Battery Usage?

When the Session goes to sleep or shuts off with the WiFi enabled, how much does this affect the battery? Does the WiFi itself sleep after a duration? Love the WiFi feature but just need answers to justify leaving it on - batteries are priority. Thank you for answering in advance

Re: GoPro Hero5 Session Wifi Battery Usage?

Hi @researchonly,

 

This feature is going to save more battery then with WiFi being on. The WiFi will turn off and the camera will maintain connection with the device through bluetooth which is a low power option. 

 

If you are looking to save the most battery possible it is best to turn off the connections all together.

 

Best,

Ryan
