Hero 5 Black Battery won't charge

After setting up camera and 1 day of use attempted to Re-charge battery.

5 hrs later still only 63%.

 What is the fix?

Re: Hero 5 Black Battery won't charge

Hi @scottz56,

 

How are you charging the camera? Make sure you are using a 5v 2amp wall charger and that the Wireless connections are off.

 

Best,

Ryan
