HERO3 (Black / Silver / White)

Here's a list of the average run times for the HERO3 cameras with a fully charged battery*.  

 Avg. time for camera onlyAvg. time for lowest power consumption settingAvg. time for highest power consumption settingAvg. time for Camera + LCD Touch BacPacAvg. time for Camera + Battery BacPac2
Black Edition1.5 hrs1.5 hrs (1080-30)1 hr (WVGA-240)1 hr2.5 hrs
Silver Edition2 hrs2 hrs (720-30)1.5 hrs (WVGA-120)1.5 hrs3 hrs
White Edition2.5 hrs3 hrs (WVGA-60 and 720-30)2 hrs (1080-30)1.5 hrs3.5 hrs
Please note there are a variety of conditions that can affect run times, such as:
  • Cold weather, which will reduce battery-life.
  • Enabling Wi-Fi, 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.
*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. 


HD HERO2 / HD HERO Original / HD HERO 960

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 somewhat, however the camera helps to minimize this by transferring the normal heat generated during operation towards the battery. 

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