The best GoPro batteries in our store+tips
GoPro cameras, like most modern devices, use lithium-ion batteries. They do not require special care, but by following the instructions and recommendations in this article, you can significantly extend their battery life and service life. If you need to buy a battery, you can find an extensive selection of products in our store.
The manufacturer's declared service life of the GoPro battery is two years. At the same time, certain factors can both extend the life of the battery and reduce it. Below is a list of tips and simple recommendations by which you will ensure the stable operation of the camera and long battery life:
Charging the battery with poor-quality or faulty cables and power adapters is not recommended. The best choice would be to use original GoPro cables and adapters.
Observe the output current and voltage parameters. It is highly recommended not to charge the camera with adapters whose current exceeds 1A, and the voltage is 5V. Exceeding these parameters contributes to the reduction of capacity and failure of the battery.
Heat is the main enemy of batteries. Monitor the battery temperature, and do not get carried away by high-speed charging. Do not use the camera at a temperature of +50°C and above. Do not leave the device turned on in the sun or in a closed car. If you do not have the opportunity to move to a cooler place during shooting, try to reduce the amount of energy consumed by the device: if possible, reduce the screen brightness, and turn off indicators, GPS, and Wi-Fi modules. For faster cooling of the camera, simply remove the battery.
Cold, unlike heat, is almost non-threatening for this type of battery. But if GoPro is turned off under the influence of cold temperatures and does not turn on, the best solution is to try to warm it up in a warm room or at least in the jacket's inner pocket. Again, for a faster warm-up, remove the battery from the camera.
Do not charge the camera if it has been under the influence of cold temperatures for a long time – let it warm up to room temperature. Usually, it's enough to wait 20-30 minutes. If you need a battery, browse our catalog: the selection will surprise you pleasantly.
