Battery Spec Differences?

[ New ]

What is the difference between the older rechargeble batteries (Hero4) and the newer "blue trimmed" batteries (Hero 8)? A camera message tells me to "Use the Hero 8 battery for more features", but I cannot find where it makes a difference. Specs online seem the same. Hero 8 seems to work fine with the older batteries. Since I have three, don't want to trash them.
