Re: Will the Hero 8 Charge while recording

Hello @sunnystar72428.  For a setup where the camera is connected directly to a power source, the HERO8 Black battery will not charge even when in the camera as long as the camera is recording. This is the same behavior as with the batteries of older camera models.
