Re: Battery Purchase

HERO8 Black batteries work with HERO6 Black. Can you provide the links to what you are looking at?

Re: Battery Purchase

@epicspirit603, the HERO8 Battery will be completely compatible with the HERO6 Black once the camera has been updated to the latest software. If the previous cameras have not been updated, they will exhibit the following behavior:

  • HERO7 Black - Camera will instantly power on when battery is inserted
  • HERO6 Black - Camera will instantly power on when battery is inserted
  • HERO5 Black - Camera will not function
  • HERO (2018) - Camera will not function

 

As for the pricing, you may also provide us a screenshot of what you see on your end so we can help check on the details for you.
