short battery life hero 7 cold weather

I'm using a Hero 7 Black on the outside of an aircraft in a weather proof inclosure.  Due to the extreme cold battery life is very short and I can't just go change it.  Is there anyway to use external power and be sealed from the weather?

Accessories by GoPro or others?

Re: short battery life hero 7 cold weather

Hello @jefft4488. We only have the Super Suit but this does not allow a connection for an external power source. Other members may know of customized accessories so please watch out for their reply. 

 

On a different note, there are tips here on improving battery performance in low-temperature environments. Hope this helps.

Re: short battery life hero 7 cold weather

So i guess the short answer is to not use the image stabilization in cold weather.  I guess I should have reasearched better before I bought it as that is WHY I bought the Hero 7 Black.  Helicopter flights in all weather.  OOPS
