Tips to Extend GoPro Hero 11 Battery Life


Even though the Hero 11 battery performs better previous battery models, you can still follow some simple tips I wrote for you below, which will help you save some power:

Keep the GoPro Off When Not Recording

It’s a no-brainer, actually! Keeping your GoPro off when not recording will check the battery drain. Therefore, you should always make it a point to keep the Hero 11 off when not in use.

Keep Your Batteries Warm in Cold Weather

Even if there’s a huge improvement in the cold weather performance on the Enduro battery that Hero 11 features, you should still consider putting it in the inside zippered pocket of your jacket to keep it warm when the camera is not in use. After all, it’s still a lithium-ion battery.

Turn Off the LCD Screen

Again, a known fact – if the LCD screen of your action camera is ON, it will use more power. So, to extend its battery life, you may consider going back to the old-fashioned way of not using its LCD screen. I especially recommend it when you’re running out of juice but still have quite a bit left to shoot.

Update the Firmware

With each firmware update, GoPro comes up with many minor fixes. A few of these fixes may help improve the overall battery performance of your Hero 11 Black. So, you should always keep the firmware of your GoPro Hero 11 updated.

Don’t use the Extra Settings (WiFi, GPS, Voice Control)

Turning off the extra settings like WiFi, GPS, voice control, etc. if you don’t need them. It can help boost the overall battery life of your Hero 11.

Reduce the Recording Resolution or Frame Rate

As I’ve already enlisted above in the ‘How Long Can You Film?’ section, lower resolution or frame rate leads to an increase in recording time. That’s because, when you record in lower resolution or frame rate, your GoPro uses lesser power. So, if you reduce the recording resolution or frame rate of your Hero 11, it will boost the camera’s battery life.

Bring along Extra Batteries

If you really want to shoot with your GoPro for extended durations, you should consider buying an extra battery or two, depending upon your recording time. This will help you double or triple the run time of your GoPro Hero 11.

Are GoPro Hero 10 and 11 Batteries The Same?


Yes, the GoPro Hero 10 and Hero 11 use the same battery. Both cameras are compatible with the GoPro Rechargeable Battery. This allows you to interchange batteries between the Hero 10 and Hero 11 without any issues, making it convenient for users who own both camera models or upgrade from one to the other.
 
On the other hand, GoPro has significantly improved the battery life on the new Hero 11 Black by introducing the Enduro battery which significantly longer runtimes and dramatically improved cold-weather performance. Here’s an example. In 4K/60fps, the Hero 11 offers a 70-minute run time. In comparison, the Hero 10 Black could only manage 51 minutes with the same resolution/fps.

Can GoPro 11 Record While Charging?


Yes, the GoPro Hero 11 can record while charging. By doing this, the power is drawn directly from the power source rather than the battery. It’s important to note that the battery won’t continue charging while this is happening.

This feature is useful when you need extended recording time or want to use your GoPro as a webcam, for instance. To record while charging, simply connect your GoPro to a power source using a USB-C cable. Make sure the cable and the power source can provide sufficient power to keep the camera running and charging at the same time.

Please note that using your GoPro while it’s charging can generate heat, so it’s essential to ensure proper ventilation to prevent overheating. It’s also a good idea to use a high-quality, reliable power source and USB-C cable to ensure stable power delivery and avoid potential damage to your camera.

 

How Long Does GoPro 11 Battery Take to Charge?


The time it takes to charge a GoPro is determined by two primary factors: the battery’s health and the power source. If the battery is older, it may require a longer charging time compared to a newer one. If a low-current power source like a computer’s USB port is used, it may take up to 4 hours to fully charge the GoPro. However, when a standard wall charger is used, the GoPro can be fully charged in about 2 hours.
 
During the charging process, the initial 80% is usually the fastest and can be completed in approximately an hour. For newer GoPro models that utilize a USB-C cable, fast charging is supported, and when plugged into a high-current USB port, it can charge up to 70% faster.

Last Word Of Advice


If you still feel the need to increase your GoPro Hero 11 battery life, follow the above-mentioned tips, which will help you save some battery power. However, if you need to shoot for a longer time without worrying about changing your batteries, then I strongly recommend you stock up on GoPro batteries. If you are a casual user, 3 batteries should be enough for a full day of shooting.

The following battery kit is super convenient when I’m shooting on a location and I need to quickly charge multiple batteries at the same time. It includes a USB-C charging port, which means that you can connect it to any power bank if you are on the go.
