Yeah, I think 1080 is the most economical use of battery, according to the charts. What external battery do you use? Mine is a smaller power juice.
So far, recording with external battery only is fine. I stop and start recording several times, but I leave camera on because I’m afraid shutting down with wireless off will power down unit because of the external battery - but it doesn’t. Battery stays on, and unit powers up fine.
It just frosts me having to even think about these issues.

The Audio sync issue only happens with the external mic and external power on the Hero 7, works fine on a the H5 and H6.
I don't think it happens if the external power is plugged directly into the camera and not through the audio Mic adapter.
I have used serveral external battery paks, some cheap ones from ebay and a huge Anker one.
Right now I use a 12v battery with 2.1 amp USB outlets on the Kayak, worked out great this weekend.
Apparenlty you can get around the sync issue if you start the recording on the internal battery then plug in the USB power on the audio adapter, but in my case I can't do that becasue I don't have a battery in the camera LOL.
