Strange Low Battery Warnings

Hi Guys
I was filming with my GoPro Hero 5 Black Edition and was getting a low battery warning (0%) about half of the time when I turned it on. This could normally be resolved by turning it off and on again (it then showed again the percentage the battery really had). I had the same problem with different batteries from GoPro itself aswell as third party manufacturers. It's not a huge problem, but it gets really annoying, especially when I want to capture something in the moment and not want to turn the camera off and back on again (which takes about 20-30 seconds). Does anyone had the same problem and maybe even found a solution?
Thanks in advance!

Re: Strange Low Battery Warnings

Sounds like a bug and software issue

Re: Strange Low Battery Warnings

So you think updating it again (just did it 2 weeks ago) should solve the problem?
