I feel that Gopro should have not included the battery and instead included their wall brick, since this charger is ridiculously slow without it. To me, that combo is worth $60. I really don't understand the high reviews being how terrible the pricing scheme is. If you bought the supercharger brick and this item, that would set you back $100. That is way too much money for what you get. For that price, it should be the supercharger brick, charger, and two batteries.
Did I mention this charger is ridiculously slow without the supercharger brick? I average 3-4 hours of charging time. Doesn't matter if there is one or two batteries. It takes a really, really long time. I have tried several high end bricks, that I know for a fact are quality and have used them to charge dozens of other electronics that I have to great success. 3-4 hours is very poor, IMO. My Hero 3+ era Gopro dual charger and using the same wall bricks takes half the time (and that charger is also nearly half the size). And my Hero 3+ batteries are still very healthy, getting 100-110 mins of runtime with top res/fps. 100-110 mins of runtime, 100-110 mins of recharge time. Perfect cycle for two batteries and near continuous operation. Using the Hero 5/6 era setup, you would have to have 3 batteries in the rotation.
In summary, this charger is too big, charges too slow, and forces you to buy more batteries vs the Hero 3+ era system for near continuous video recording. I feel that this combo (charger plus one battery) should be more like $30. A combo with the charger and supercharger brick and no battery should be $60. Add $20 for each battery. So, for $100 you should get the supercharger brick, this charger, and two batteries. At the end of the day, if you are away from wall power, the supercharge brick is useless to you and you are stuck with super slow charging. Being that this is an action camera meant to be used in in the field away from wall power, Gopro missed the mark on this one. It should work very well with charge packs with 2.4A (QC, etc.) USB ports, 12V plug in style 2.4A (QC, etc.) USB ports, etc., for field use. It doesn't. You are probably better off just buying more batteries and not buying the Gopro charger or supercharger brick. Get a 3rd party multi bay charger instead. Overall probably cheaper and will work out better.
UPDATE: Used the following wall brick, and this one did charge the fastest of the half dozen I have tried.
All batteries cooled down before attempting recharge. 1 battery alone starting at 10% took just under 2 hours. 2 batteries at the same time both starting at 1% took about 3 hours and 3 hours 5 mins respectively. I really doubt that my Gopro charger is defective, or that trying yet another wall brick will make much difference. This is just a really slow charger. I seriously doubt others claims that this will charge 2 fully depleted batteries in under 2 hours, even if used with the Supercharger wall brick. 3 or so hours to simultaneously charge 2 fully depleted batteries of this mAh capacity and composition, IMO, is just not good engineering on the part of Gopro. Battery charging these kinds of batteries is a solved problem.
In my opinion, this thing is a ripoff. It's really depressing that the GoPro brand cannot make a good battery, and also put a big price tag on it.
I had a big vacation last month that i knew i was going to use the heck out of my GoPro Hero 6 on. I actually bought a spare that was on sale on Amazon for $16, then bought the GoPro brand Battery Charger and spare battery, giving me 3 total. I've got to say, what a pathetic battery these are.
It takes NO TIME at all to drain these. Just using your GoPro to flip through settings, look at pics, or have On while using the app to download pics or use a a remote, will drain it at an amazingly fast rate. Of course, if you don't already know this, recording on your GoPro in better qualities at better frame rates will also help drain the batteries fast. Why does this happen? I have no freaking idea and it pisses me off. I've read nightmarish reviews about the GoPro's and their batteries but wanted to find out for myself. According to some reviewers, they recommend that you remove the battery from the GoPro after use because it will overheat the camera and also harm the Micro SD card that is in the same slot as the battery! That's insane and uncalled for. We spend a TON of money on GoPro's cameras and accessories, only to buy something for the name. The quality is really quite pathetic. The word pathetic can also stretch out to their poor customer service and App. Might sound like i'm getting off topic, but mediocre technology is the reason why the battery life is poor, and why i had to buy 2 spares. I can tell you that i used every one of these batteries on my vacation, as well.
GoPro's website has plenty of hints, tips, tricks, troubleshooting, and recording times versus battery life. In my experience, the actual battery life versus how long GoPro claims the batteries will last, is far less. It's my belief that they, themselves, don't really know what's going on. They also tell you what SD cards work with their cameras, but wouldn't you think that it should be ANY Micro SD card? Me too.
Don't believe the hype with non GoPro batteries. Use only the real deal. They are not expensive and they work when you need them.
