GoPro Hero6 battery Fake?

I bought a Hero6 battery on eBay listed as Genuine Original 1220mAh [Official Accessory]

Battery life is about 20% less then real the GoPro battery

video freezes and randomly turns off without beeping

Can you confirm if this is a fake/counterfeit battery? right battery is the original GoPro

Hi @rogero4068

 

We do not have a way to tell if the battery you have is genuine or not.

What we can suggest is to always purchase directly from gopro.com or an authorized reseller.

You may also do some test recordings and see how it fares.

Please refer to this article: Short Record Times

 

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks!
