It can take a while for the camera to fully charge the first time. If you unplug the camera, you should be able to see what the power level is on the camera itself.

 

As a precaution, you'll want to confirm that the power supply you're using is 5V / 1-2A. Also, it's a good idea to make sure that your camera's firmware is fully up to date. Instructions on how to do a manual update for the HERO8 Black are at https://gopro.com/en/us/update/hero8-black.

 time a charge for three  hours, remove off the charger. you should be at full, 100%. load new firmware 01.50 up,    use the camera, and watc hthecharge again threehours . after the 5th charge th camera should    level out correctly.  You will always see  a led idication of On till fully charged. on the Laptop this is a Bug the led won't go out, why gopro won't note this to people.

on a 2.1 A charger it will go  out.   the actual battery has to  build up memory I say .
