Any ideas why this is happening?
Thank you in advance.

@coolpeak7143 - Not sure why that's happening. The only thing I can think of is that the power supply is causing the camera to overheat for some reason. Does this happen if you were to shoot regular video?

Any update in this topic?
I observe similar behaviour. I wanted to use external powerbank for long timelapses. Two of my gopro6 units do the same thing. They turn of automatically after roughly about 15min of timelapse shooting. It does not happen everytime but it happens. Automatic turn off option is set to "never". I shoot mostly at -5C so I think overheating is also not a problem.
My guess is that this happens when internal battery was not fully loaded at the begining of timelapse and device turns off when internal battery is fully loaded. But this is only a guess. I am trying right now to reproduce this flow.
Is this expected behaviour that 6th generation of gopro lasts only 3h on timelapse mode on internal battery? Shouldn't timelapse mode be more efficient than video capture? My 8 year old DSLR lasts 1.5h in video but in timelapse it works easily for 5h with 10s interval even dough it needs to flip mirror.

Have you been able to resolve that issue? I have the same problem here with my HERO6 and alredy tried different cables, power adapters, batteries, etc. Thanks for your update!

Does your camera stop recording time lapse as well when connected directly to a charger? I actually tried doing a time lapse recording while the camera was plugged into the charger and was able to record at least an hour of time lapse video without any interruption. Have you already tried manually updating your camera? My setup was with a HERO6 Black camera set to Time Lapse video, 1080p, 0.5 s interval, FOV Wide, camera updated to version 2.01.
Hope to hear back from you.
