Hi, how long can I make the battery for my Gpro5b last if I'm taking 1 minute time lapse at 1080p?

Thanks for your responses. I tested the hero 5 timelapse by setting the camera in front of a clock (I found out after that the gopro displays how long it's been taking timelapse for), It lasted 2hrs 32 mins on 86% power. I was using the backscreen on and off for 20 mins before starting timelapse. 

In conclusion; Hero 5 black on 60 sec timelapse, 1080 wide, 12mp with screen brightness set to the lowest setting, and 1 min screen saver with everything else switched off, should last around 3hrs with a full charge and a brand new battery. This was better than I'd expected. I'll be using this mode when flying around on my paraglider next time. 

I hope this info helps.

Cheers.

If my experience is any guide, not very long.  So far I have had little luck using the H5Black for any length of time.  Yesterday I had a freshly charged ( fairly new ) battery, I turned the H5B on to set it to video mode and check my settings ( never could get the app to connect to it ), turned it off.  About 30 minutes later it would not turn on, the battery was dead!  Completly unreliabe, I am now switching back to my G3B, not great battery life but at least it works when needed.
