hero 4 black - recording while charging (?)

Hi there, 

has anyone had success using the gopro 4 black for continuous recording while charging? 

 

If yes, what setup are you using? 

 

Mine seems to stop charging whenever I hit record. When I record, it consumes battery.

I've tried to completely remove the battery; this way the camera stays On, but if I hit record it shuts down in a few seconds.  So I have to put my battery back in. I've tried this setup with a 5m (16 feet) USB cable connected to a standard 1A samsung charger. Any help?

 

thanks!

Have you tried hitting record and then plugging the camera into power?

Actually no 

but... shouldn't I be able to use the camera with no battery at all?
