The information in this chart is based on GoPro engineering testing. Actual performance may vary based on settings, environmental conditions and other factors. Maximum battery capacity will normally decrease with time and use.

Please note there are a variety of conditions that can affect run times, such as:
  • Cold weather, which will reduce battery-life.
  • The above times are based on doing a continuous record.  Stopping/starting recording, or powering camera on/off repeatedly will reduce the total record time.
