Extending the life of your GoPro HERO, the Battery BacPac is a removable battery pack that seamlessly attaches to the back of the camera. This version features a 15% boost in capacity compared to the previous model - perfect for all-day adventures, marathon surf sessions, or any application where you need more battery life than the internal battery alone can provide.

You can charge it with any standard USB charger, the GoPro Auto or Wall Charger (available separately), or a computer. A USB cable for charging, BacPac Backdoors, and a protective case are included along with it.

    GoPro ABPAK-401 reviews

    Battery BacPac is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Included Door Will Not Fit Hero3 Dive Housing The battery fits on the Hero3 Black but... The included back doors fit the newer smaller standard case The Hero3 Black was shipped with a larger Dive Case. You will need to upgrade the case to new newer smaller standard case, or look at other options that include back doors for both size cases. You may be able to find the larger back door elsewhere also. I gave three stars because the battery seems very good but the lack of clarity about the different sizes of back doors made me de-rate it 2 stars. If you have the newer Hero3+ or Hero4 type case then this will work well and I'd give it 5-stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, B&H even better. B&H exceeds expectactations! Product seems to work great, though I haven't tried pushing the limits in the field. No reason to think it won't work perfectly as advertised. The BacPac effectively doubles your GoPro battery life, from 1 hour to 2 hours. It covers the LCD screen, but I don't mind because I don't use it much anyway. It comes with a couple skeleton cases which are perfect for my use on a motorcycle. Product arrived faster than I expected and included more accessories than I thought. B&H always does a great job with their online store, even better than the huge ones like Amazon.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Power life extended but not a back up. I used this with my GoPro Hero 4 and it extends the battery life for about one more hour if you're recording video. It comes with two� bac housing so you can use it.� I only gave 4 stars because in order for this to work the battery in your camera has to be charged. If you have no power in your camera and then you attached the BacPac the camera is not going to turn on.� � This is a nice thing to have if you are recording or taking pictures and you can't replace the battery in your camera, like scubba diving or long snowboard runs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Doubles run-time..... Works good. The camera is capable of charging both the internal battery and the BacPac! The only downside is that the camera uses the BacPac first by default - I would prefer it the other way, or even better would be a software update which would allow the order of use to be selected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from OEM works better and last longer The OEM battery may cost more. Some things you can use aftermarket batteries for since they do not draw nearly as much power. The GoPro goes through a lot when you use the camera. It gets banged around and it has a lot of function. I have found that the OEM battery has lasted longer than the aftermarket batteries. It is also built to fit inside of the camera better. When it gets banged around, it is not loose and moving around inside. I use three batteries which for any trip gives me more than enough battery without worrying about charging or running out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should Have Bought This Long Ago Standard battery doesn't have enough power. This of course is much bigger and lasts longer. I wish I had purchased it with my GoPro a year ago.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Backdoor that comes with the BacPac doesn't work on Hero3 Contrary to as advertised, backdoor that comes with the BacPac doesn't work on Hero3. Total waste of time. Good thing is, B&H is working with me to get a replacement.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work with Hero3 Not worth the try. Didn't work with my Hero3 contrary to what's advertised.
