VERY short battery life GoPro Black 9

[ New ]
The battery doesn’t last even an hour. Even if I just have it on and not using video/camera at all, I can literally watch the battery just drain from 100 to 80 in minutes and it’s downhill from there. Had maybe 4 - 5 minute videos and camera stated “SD card full”. Would like a refund, not what I signed up for.

@megarange75350, make sure that a recommended SD card is used for your camera.

The camera's maximum battery capacity will vary based on settings, environmental conditions, and other factors. You may check this article that lists down the estimated runtime (in minutes) of the GoPro cameras:https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/GoPro-Camera-Battery-Life/ta-p/394294
