Re: Hero 7 Black Battery life issue without using

There  are Two topics about Battery drain, do take a look for them, they have a ton of just information.  can lead to a battery  made in a country to a sd card used. also to settings that are   left on.  It can also be a firmware issue.  And reflashing is not the answer, so make sure you check out the topics on the site.

Re: Hero 7 Black Battery life issue without using

Camera correctly set up by Following the  guide of the camera  You  then shut down the Wireless Connection and should not have a drain.  SInce you never mention any settings I suggest  looking into that, as well do a factory reset and again follow the guide and when it asaks t oconnect your wirfi and gps Decline it.  Also  in the mean timeformat hte sd card   if youknow how  to do a full format even better..  and  also read the two topics you will see you  are not alone.

Re: Hero 7 Black Battery life issue without using

If you go to the two topics like I said and read up the battery, the sd card, and well firmware are why the camera drains.   one big isue is leaving  settings on so you havet o learn the camera  do not leave Voicecommands WAKE On on that will deplete the can in hours  ,, Wifi will not that will drain a percent a day  if  not used.   the bluetooth  will shut things down, not wake On.

Use your warranty if the issue continues. And until you get a perfect camera
