Battery Life

When is GoPro going to make a battery that lasts longer than 40 minutes. I just bought a GoPro Max and turned it on with a full charge. Did a software update and it went from 100% battery to 75% in 15 minutes. Frustrating to make a $400 purchase only to get shafted by a weak battery.

Re: Battery Life

Hello, @oscarp3623. Battery life generally depends on the resolution settings when the camera is used. The battery life of about 40 minutes is normal if the MAX is used to capture 360 video set at 5.6K at 30 fps. See https://community.gopro.com/t5/en/MAX-Battery-Information/ta-p/396168 for reference.
