Hero 7 Black Battery Life when streaming

Thinking about hooking up my Hero 7 Black to my hockey helmet and streaming my hockey game but I'm just wondering how long the battery will last while streaming...If I'm not mistaken, the gopro only streams in 720p so should I base the time off of 720p section on the Hero7 Battery Information page? Or anticipate it being less than that since it's streaming?

 

Thanks!

Re: Hero 7 Black Battery Life when streaming

Hi @zippysand05

 

You may be able to get longer recording time if connecting the camera to an external power source.

However, this may not be possible with your setup.

Perhaps other users may have tested this and can share their ideas. Let us watch out for their replies.
