Hi,

 

I purchased a HERO 7 Black on May 06th from Doha- Qatar.

 

The camera gets quite warm during battery charging especially on the side of the charge port, is this normal ? I’m charging it via the USB charger plug of an iPad Air 2 & approximately takes about 100-120 minute for full charge

 

Appreciate your response.

 

Thank you.

Re: GoPro

Should be fine. Take the SD card out of the camera and see if you are getting the same results. The camera scans the card in the background, so that might be what is causing the heating. Also, if you have auto cloud update, auto Quik Story, or have recently captured media, the connections might be turning on and causing some heating as well.
