Re: battery gets low bat easily and the unit getting hot fast

The GoPro will get hot. There is no way around that and that is normal. It isn't designed to auto-power off if the internal temperature exceeds 125 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

How fast does your battery drain? At max I can get 1h50min out of one battery. At worse, I've got under half and hour battery. What setting are you recording at? Is your GPS/wifi on? What about QuikCapture? Screen brightness? Auto-power off?

 

I can help you once I get some specific information.
