Which aftermarket battery for hero3?

Post by davsato » Fri Mar 03, 2017 10:49 pm

Hi guys, I recently got a s.h. gopro hero3 and I think the battery may have seen better days, it records just about an hour at 720p, is that good or bad?
If bad, and since a spare would be a good idea anyway, I had a look for a battery and the market is a minefield of Chinese knock offs and nasty cheapo batteries. So what are the reliable brands or reliable sellers out there?

Battery does sound goosed, I get much more than that on my hero 3 from one battery at 720p. I use the original battery and 2 Wasabi units, I got a dual sided charger and the 2 batteries from Amazon for about £27. Cant notice any difference between those and the original so I would recommened them!

I use Wasabi & Smatree. Keep an eye on them when not in use for a protracted period. Don't leave them fully discharged.
