Re: Hero 7 battery drain

The same happens to me...
From time to time the camera when it works works well but others are downloaded from 100% to 0% in less than 24 hours and heated ...

Re: Hero 7 battery drain

Does anybody else also more than one battery?
In my case it happens often with one battery, but not with the other.

Re: Hero 7 battery drain

I have 3 GoPro original batteries, and the battery drains in either, regardless.  I'm 100% sure the problem is not in the battery, it is something in the GoPro 7 unit itself, that for some reason it doesn't shutdown correctly (it stays running doing something).  It doesn't always happen, but often and noticible.  Never had this problem with GoPro 5 or 6.

Re: Hero 7 battery drain

I have x4 battery - same issue with any of them. Anyway, I don't think it's because of battieries - I think it's hero5-7 software thing.

Re: Hero 7 battery drain

Different Hero 7, different batteries, different cards, different chargers - same issues.

Re: Hero 7 battery drain

Hi, Exactly I'd like to know if there is anyone with A Hero 7 Black that has not had this issue because it seems very Clear that everyone with one so far has experienced this issue more than once   I didn't see any responces to the post I made about mine mis reporting battery charge level only strucjk this twice where it was reported 0 percent was hesitant to turn on but did so on second try but was still 0% but when put on charger only took 10 -20 mins to fully charge so it wasn't flat the other instance it said 83 or 87% cant remember off hand exactly which but after turning it off then back on said 100% so I cant really rely on  that side of things either

Cheers,Brent
