Default Go Pro HERO 3 - BATTERY LIFE

So what's everyone trick to not running out of juice?

I bought an extra battery and a charger that plugs into my 110v plug in the jeep. But we were barely able to keep them both working all day. But we did!

So, should I just buy a 3rd battery or is there something else? Faster chargers?

Thanks!!!

Ive found if I don't continually stop and start it with the wifi I can get through most of the day on two batteries. I do know that you can buy the extended battery as well I think it actually piggybacks on the back of the camera.

I run mine off the cigarette lighter. This means you use the frame case and not the scuba case. You can find them for about $20.Click image for larger version
