gopro 8 battery - do you all get Amperex?

hi all,

 

who made your batteries?

 

I do have the original battery that came with the camera.

and I bought two more because when I sold h6-h7 the buyers "appreciate" the extra battery.

 

I had one-two years ago Amperex battery, the one that came with h6 or h7 I do not remember exactly.

And were some issues with that.

 

I had no issues and I got peak steady performances from all Samsung battery I used.  

 

freshly (to the green) charged battery with the old dual charger inserted in camera shows 97%. The other 87%. and the third is not charged to check it.

 

I mixed them so I do not know which is which.

 

I just hope will settle down after a couple of charge/discharge and I just hope we will not start another Amperex battery saga.

 

don't get me wrong. I have nothing against Amperex is a solid manufacturer. but when gopro batteries maybe something is not 100% perfect.

hi all,

 

I've retested. It's fine, false alarm.

could have been the fact that I received the batteries two days ago, and need few charge/discharge...

 

1. I used today all, on rotation, at least 30min each.

2. charge them all.

3. the battery that showed in the morning as well 100% was inside the camera for three hours (voice command on, wifi on, etc.) 97%

4. the two batteries that charged to the green in the meantime, are 100% when introduced in the camera.

 

all good, the question about the manufacturer of your battery remains.

 

have a nice weekend,

robert
