The tables below indicate the approximate continuous recording time (in minutes) you can expect when shooting in various video modes using a fully-charged battery. These estimates are based on GoPro engineering testing under optimal conditions with Wi-Fi, GPS, Protune, and Voice Control off. Actual performance may vary based on settings, environmental conditions, and other factors. Maximum battery capacity will normally decrease with time and use.

With a single battery, you will get approximately 2.5 hours of continuous video recording time in mild and warmer temperatures. Cold temps will reduce run times; however, the camera helps to minimize this by transferring the normal heat generated during operation toward the battery. 

If you use our Battery BacPac, you can use two batteries at the same time to effectively double recording times.
