GoPro battery lifetime

Results are recorded in real-life situations outside of a lab, with changing scenery and light conditions. These analytics are not official or in any way associated with the manufacturer of the GoPro cameras. Battery life depends on many different variables, such as operation envoirement, temperature, age of battery, number of recharges, quality of memory card etc. Your results may vary. This table and all of it contents are copyrighted. Feel free to link to this page from your own website.

Remember that your memory card only can store about 90% of its labeled capacity. A 16 GB card can only store about 14,7 GB video. Video size depends on recording time, resolution and what you are recording. Static video (i.e. surveillance at night) take up less space than moving video (i.e. inside a racingcar).
