1 cable to camera to powerbank, turn on it is white.. I simply unplug from camera and back in the white changes to Green.,

Also, does your camera default to using external power or internal power first (with a battery in)? I asked this question somewhere in this thread. Mine favors internal first, another user's favors external. Why is that?

My camera were among the first batches of the HERO6 Black, hence the gray logo. I do not have one here with the colored logo so I am not able to test how it works. With the battery in, the camera defaults to internal battery when recording starts. Without the battery though, my camera continues to record until I stop recording, or until the SD card capacity is consumed.

blue logo is hte latest batch of camera's they come loaded with fw 1.60 the original came out late sept/oct 5th with fw 1.0* there were issues with fw's and camera software that firmware 1.20 -2.01 that improves userability. bugs and fixes. As we see here how simple itwas to stumble apone the green fast charge thing...

Thank you for the details you shared, @fishycomics. Interesting. I have not seen such a green indicator before. I also tried with different USB-C cables (one with white, another with blue insert), and with a non-GoPro power bank but to no avail. I wonder if @drmmrboy24 gets the green indicator on his camera.

@mariustanya, I will do the same tests you did as soon as possible. I have a messed up work schedule but hopefully I can do this tonight. I will definitely post my result here at some point, hopefully sooner rather than later.
