The new GoPro Enduro battery enables longer video recording times compared to the cameras’ existing standard battery, GoPro says. Examples of what can now be achieved include:
- 5.3K60 – 47% more runtime than previous for an average of 29 minute-long clips
- 5.3K30 – 11% more runtime than previous for an average of 44 minute-long clips
- 4K120 – 52% more runtime than previous for an average of 26 minute-long clips
- 4K60 – 154% more runtime than previous for an average of 63 minute-long clips
- 4K30 – 35% more runtime than previous for an average of 50 minute-long clips
GoPro says the Enduro battery can also perform longer in colder temperatures. At a battery temperature of 14F / -10C, Hero10 Black users can expect, on average, 56 minutes of 5.3K60 video, 50 minutes of 4K120 video, 76 minutes of 4K60 video and 115 minutes of 1080p30 video recording.
The new GoPro Enduro battery will be released on November 30.
GoPro also announced a new firmware update for the Hero10 Black that will be released at the end of October. The new GoPro firmware will introduce three new Video Performance Modes:
- Maximum Video Performance – Maximum resolution and frame rates for the very best image quality and ultra-slow-motion video.
- Extended Battery – Optimal resolutions and frame rates for the longest possible video recording times and maximum battery life.
- Tripod / Stationary Video — Optimised for recording long video clips at the highest resolutions and frame rates when the camera is stationary without motion or airflow to cool the camera. GPS and HyperSmooth video stabilisation are turned OFF in this mode.
