Hero 7 black leds are no shutting down after the charge

Hi, I've just bought the hero 7 black. After several hours of charging the 2 red leds remain on.
Despite this, the battery is charged, when I turn it on, charge is at 99%. It stays at 99% for less than one minute, then it starts to drain "normally". Do you think is normal? Shall I bring it back and get a new one? I bought it 5 days ago

Re: Hero 7 black leds are no shutting down after the charge

I would make sure that you are using one of the recommended SD cards for your camera, you can find a list hereL

Also make sure that you have updated to the latest firmware for your camera, you can find instructions on how to do that hereL

If the problem still persists, you can always contact customer support directly, you can find a full list of options hereL
