Re: HERO 6 Battery Stuck

try this :

 

  the narrow edge is where youcan simply lift up the battery try not to  use a sharp object if you have to carefully.  

 

I made a number of videos showing howto get bats out.  I used my thumb I get under to the narrow side and pry up  no tool required.  careful about the bat door

Battery must have been installed backwards. You're going to have to use a small screwdriver to pry it loose. Be careful not to nick the edge of the camera case that the waterproof seal rests on.

Re: HERO 6 Battery Stuck

If a battery is place in backwards the door can not be closed, I hope you did not foce the door closed OP never mentioned backwards or upside down?

 

Ifind very easy to remove batteries  as I hope my demonstration both in correct and incorrect gets it out for you.
