HD HERO2, HD HERO Original, and HD HERO 960 Battery Life


What battery life can be expected with HD HERO2, HD HERO Original, and HD HERO 960?

Where does it apply?

  • HD HERO Original
  • HD HERO 960
  • HD HERO2


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. 

*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.
