Re: charging gp hero 6

After four hours it's probably fully charged. There seems to be an issue with the light turning off when charging is complete. On my Hero6 if I turn the camera on and then off while it's charging the light goes off as it should. Hopefully the coming update will address this.

It should reach 100% within a few minutes or less.

Re: charging gp hero 6

When I first got my camera I noticed it wouldn't charge all the way to 100%. Now it does. It's a Lithium so it really shouldn't matter, but the battery does seem to perform better after a little use.

After checking the battery level and finding 95%, did you turn off the camera and plug it back in? I've done that when this happens to me, plugging it back in causes it to fully charge to 100% and the light goes off.
