Long Term Battery Life - When Will My GoPro Die...

Hey, ive had a look around and i can't seem to find anyone asking this question (if they have sorry and can you please send the link)

 

I Use my gopro session every day for vlogging and cycling so im using about 4 hours of battery (2 full charges a day) my question is how many charges is the gopro session battery made for before it dies. And what happend if and when it does die? can i send it to gopro and they can fix it? or do i have to buy a new one?

Re: Long Term Battery Life - When Will My GoPro Die...

Your probably looking at 2-3 years before your battery life starts to show noticeable loss.  Around four years and you might be at about half of the life.  The battery has the same characteristics as a phone using a lithium battery.  There is a limited number of charging cycles for all batteries but you should get plenty of use before you see the life diminish.  At the end of the battery life your Session will no longer function.  You can keep it as a memento or dispose of it appropriately.  The Session can not be repaired internally without destroying its protective housing.

@agentwisebox - The battery in the HERO Session cameras is not replaceable, so it's not something that can be fixed. There's nothing released on the number of times the battery can be recharged, but it's going to be similar to other Lithium ion batteries.
