I tried to use it with the internal battry in and it kept shutting off. Removed internal battery and it runs ok with external battery only.

Re: Using GoPro 8 with a external power bank

Yes you can use the Hero 8 with a Powerbank, added protection would be to purchase a Ulanzi G8-7  for $15.00.  It is not needed but will hlp secure and protect the internal.  For an additional Protection would be the Sleeve so moisture can be off the bat area..

 

For how it works.  the Battery stays in, turn on and simply record the battery is bipassed, but BUT always that But:

 

 youwill have unlimited record time and will lose a percentage over time.  I tested out for a few  hour livestream and no issues  at all it droped down to 90% while on the 10K Powerbank.
