I got my new GoPRo 7 - I cannot get it to fully charge at 100%. it only goes up to between 89% and 95% - even after having it plugged for several hours. The most recent one, I had it plugged in for over 8 hours and still stayed at 95% (or less)/ I tried reseting to factory default, I tried charging it ON or OFF, I tried charging it with or without the mSD card, I tried using different charger cables and charger units, I even borrowed my friend's battery, to whom I know gets a full 100% charge. After doing all the steps outlined above, I'm still not able to get a full charge. In addition, the unit gets hot - sometimes VERY hot while charging.

I am using the approved SD card from GoPro website: https://gopro.com/help/articles/block/microSD-Card-Considerations
I'm using this: SanDisk Extreme PLUS UHS-I 32GB
And yes, the firmware is v1.51

graytree76514 - not included on my original post - after I reset my camera to factory defaults, I did used my friends battery - the one that I know for sure charges at 100% on his camera. the battery was on 2% when I used it and started charging it. from 2% - the charge went up to only 39% in 4 hours, while the unit is turned off, without an SD card.

If that's the case you may try to install a new firmware manually again and if it fails again.
You may return that camera to the shop or contact our customer support team to report that camera as defective unit.
