The last days I was testing the behaviour in different record modes. My charging symbol now always disappears when I start recording whether the battery is fully charged or not. But at least it did not happen again that the battery was discharging while recording. It keeps the carge until I stop recording.

Note #1: Even though your camera is plugged in, the battery will not charge during recording. It will start charging when you stop recording. You cannot record while charging with a computer.

Hi GoPro, do you have any news on this topic? I would love to use both and with battery too.. There is many shots you need to unplug mic and external bat and click your go pro hero 8 on top of car and drive right away. That firmware update everybody talks about - is it real in close future or we should save money for media mod? .)))
