Battery - Can you mark the battery & gopro with a dot or color to determine correct side going in

[ New ]

Does anyone have this problem?

 

Trying to determine if the battery is up or down when placing it in:

1) Gopro

2) Battery chargers?

 

Can you add a "dot" or something visible on the battery and on the gopro unit and accessories, so we know immediately the direction?

 

Just an idea but it would save time.  Especially when you have a gopro 7, 8 etc..

 

Mark the bottom of the battery blue on the other side to indicate bottom?  Something unique and consistent. 

 

Thanks!

Hi @stoutsand1245

 

The part where the contact points are should go in first. This part is colored blue on the HERO8 Black battery.

The top part where the pull tab is should be the side near the battery door.

 

Thanks!
