Hero 5 Battery Discharge Rate

I shot a 10 minutes video 1080-30 with everything (wifi, Protune, blah, blah) and I use a Sandisk 32GB Extreme MicroSDHC UHS-I Card.

 

The battery discharged 7% (down to 93%). Is this about right. About how many minutes of video can I get on a full charge?

Thanks.

Re: Hero 5 Battery Discharge Rate

Hi @peterjens,

 

Looks like it's normal. 

it depends on the weather since GoPro's battery performance is decreased on cold / hot temperature.

If it's okay, please run a battery run time test. 

 

Please check how long will you camera last. 

Please take note of the exact settings and temperature. 

 

Thanks!

-Jay

Re: Hero 5 Battery Discharge Rate

Just let us know how it goes @peterjens

 

Some users might help as well just in case there's something wrong/unusual with the result of your run time test.
