    I use Hero 3 cameras as 'c' cameras when shooting weddings and purchased this battery to get more time margin when shooting longer wedding ceremonies while using the camera's wireless capabilities. While this battery will work with the Hero 3 camera (bareback), the camera and battery bac pac combination will not fit into the "The Frame". "The Frame" is a very thin frame without a back sold by GoPro. I prefer using "The Frame" over the 197'/ 60m Waterproof Housing included with the camera for weddings to obtain a smaller footprint and capture as much audio (for video timeline synchronizing purposes) as possible. The B&H website was mute about this limitation when using this battery with the Hero 3. After receiving this battery (and finding out it didn't fit into "The Frame") I called GoPro about the issue and found out that only the newer GoPro Battery BacPac (B&H number GOABPAK) will fit into "The Frame". Therefore, I RMAed this battery and ordered the newer Battery BacPac instead. As usual, B&H was very accommodating with their RMA. I've received the newer Battery BacPac and indeed it does work with "The Frame" so problem solved. By the way, I really enjoy using the Hero 3 in "The Frame" for my purposes. It's a great combination.

      If you have a GoPro get one of these. The battery life on the GoPro is appalling. This at least gets it to a usable 3 hours.

                      Comments about GoPro Battery BacPac:

                      Forgot the waterproof back on my original hero while using in the ocean. That left several batteries to go to waste. With this BacPac I am able to use my existing batteries on my new Hero 3 Black Edition. It works! Haven't taken it out for a long ride yet but I have used it for some short clips. The only downside is that if I use this pac, I have to use the housing extender that came with it. It's too big for the newer battery pac housing extender. Likewise this housing extender is too big for the newer battery pac. The hero3 with the newer battery pac is too lose with this housing extender.

                                When doing time-lapse, the GOPRO runs out of juice within 2 hours. The BacPac allows for an additional 2 hours without having to swap batteries.

                                    not only does it prolongs the battery time by twice as much, it can be used as a stand alone charger as well. comes with an extra battery and a USB charger, perfect for those long time lapses or day long use.highly recommended.

                                          I am rarely near a wall plug when I shoot and with the Battery BacPac I am able to connect the USB to my car charger in my truck or on my motorcycle. I really like the option of it being a portable charger for the extra battery or that it can just clip onto the bac to double the run time. I was going to just buy an extra battery and an additional charger but this was clearly the best option for me. This was really great for an extended time-lapse I did that covered several hours.
