Calling all GoPro owners! An all-new, high-performance Enduro battery is coming and you won’t want to miss it. The upgraded battery will work with both HERO9
and HERO10 Black
devices. GoPro says that Enduro will dramatically improve the performance of customers’ cameras, particularly in cold weather.
It’ll also provide significantly extended recording times across the board. And best of all? It’ll cost just $24.99, which is only $5 more than a standard replacement battery. Those with a GoPro subscription, previously known as GoPro Plus, can even save 20 percent, bringing the price down to only $20.
It’s a win-win, it seems, albeit only for HERO9 and HERO10 Black owners. Owners of older GoPros, unfortunately, won’t be able to make the upgrade. However, for those that can, here’s what to expect.
GoPro Enduro Performance
By upgrading to GoPro’s all-new Enduro battery, HERO9 and HERO10 Black owners can expect to capture up to 60 minutes of 5.3K60 video — a 28 percent improvement over the standard battery. At 1080p30, meanwhile, it’ll be possible to record up to two hours of footage with an Enduro battery installed under optimal conditions.
There’s also a 40 percent improvement when recording 4K120 video. It’s now possible to keep rolling for a maximum of just over 50 minutes. Even at extremely low temperatures, where most batteries struggle
, GoPro’s revolutionary Enduro performs almost as well as in warmer conditions.
For example, it’ll be possible to capture up to 56 minutes of 5.3K60 video at subzero temperatures with an Enduro-equipped HERO10 Black. That’s just four minutes less than Enduro buyers will be able to expect normally. The Enduro will also reportedly fully charge 13 percent faster than standard GoPro batteries.
Where to Buy a GoPro Enduro Battery
GoPro’s high-performance Enduro battery will go on sale at the end of November. Those interested in picking up one or more of their own can join a special VIP waiting list
The GoPro Enduro looks set to be in high demand, so prospective buyers will likely need to be ready to pick one up at launch. Because it offers impressive performance, it’s almost certain that the Enduro will become a must-have accessory for many HERO9 and HERO10 Black owners.
HERO10 Firmware Update
It’ll be a few weeks yet before the first customers get their hands on their new Enduro batteries. In the meantime, GoPro HERO10 Black owners can look forward to a crucial new firmware update. According to GoPro, the update responds to feedback from users.
The latest firmware release, known as v1.16, will introduce three new modes created to offer improved video performance depending on usage. These are:
- Maximum Video Performance mode
- Extended Battery mode
- Tripod / Stationary Video mode
Maximum Video Performance mode will grant users peak resolution and frame rate for the absolute best image quality and ultra-slow-motion capture. On the other hand, Extended Battery mode optimizes resolution and frame rate settings to maximize recording times. As its name suggests, selecting this mode will also considerably extend a GoPro HERO10’s battery life.
Finally, Stationary Video mode responds to users’ requests for an option to record long video clips at the highest possible quality while a camera is stationary.
However, by automatically disabling GPS and video stabilization, Stationary Video mode should prevent overheating issues on the whole. As a result, HERO10 owners running firmware version 1.16 can look forward to up to 154 percent more runtime.
