here5 sessions battery life

i just bought a hero5 sessions and am quite disappointed to read batterly life is only about 2 hours.   I want to be able to run recording for 4-5 hours while I ride my bicycle.   What options do I have to record longer sessions?   Would another model provide longer battery life?  What would you suggest for a rapid recharge while I am out on my bicycle?  thank you

Jon

Re: here5 sessions battery life

the Hero 5 session can only record  2 hours about, most gopros  record  1 hour to 2 hours plus.  Use a accessory that is made for the hero 5 session that is an extended battery.

Re: here5 sessions battery life

thanks for the suggestion.   Adding a gopro to my bike (to capture abusive automobile drivers)  is beginning to sound like the children's book, "give a mouse a cooke"
