The GoPro lithium-ion rechargeable battery is a battery for use in GoPro cameras. I bought a second one as a spare as one battery seemed to last for around an hour when scuba diving (roughly one dive) and it's not really an option to recharge between dives on most diveboats.
For the techies, the battery is lithium-ion, 3.7V, 1100mAh. GoPro claim that this will last for approximatley 2.5 hours of video recording. I've found this fairly accurate when using the camera generally, but cold conditions sem to reduce this to around an hour of contimuous filming when snowboarding.
The battery is sized to fit tightly into the GoPro camera. It is actually quite hard to remove and requires a bit of levering with a coin.
My main issue with the battery is (as mentioned above) that it rapidly looses charge when it gets cold. I've found underwater in the UK it lasts a lot less than stated, and have found that after a morning snowboarding, the spare battery kept loose in my bag is flat. ONe trick is to keep it wrapped up in the bag, which does seem to work. I can;t really say that this is a major design flaw as I guess that this problem will occur with most batteries.
The battery is well made and very solid, making it suitabe for use with the GoPro which is aimed at sports use.
The battery sells for around £20 in the shops, but can be found on amzon for around £12. This in my opinion is overpricd when a similar rated battery can be found for £3-4 pounds...however the other options won't fit in the GoPro and they can effectivley charge whatever they want.
Another option available is to buy the 'battery backpak' for around £40 which goes on the back of the camera and is effectivley an extra battery. Again, overpriced in my opinion.
Very overpriced, but a good item to have to extend the use of the GoPro camera.
