In some cases the HERO3: Black Edition powers off during recording due to low battery even while it's charging. This can happen if you're using a power intensive setting on the camera, such as 1440-48 or 1080-60, and you're using Wi-Fi and the LCD Touch BacPac.

The camera may also shut down during recording in 1080-60 looping, if left overnight while connected to a charger.

This has been significantly improved with the latest software update so make sure you update to the latest version
