Definitely an improvement...,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: GoPro Battery BacPac (Camera)Bought this to try and help combat the effects of cold weather on a recent winter sports trip.
The battery pack is easy to fit and comes with an extra door so you can add it to the camera and still keep the camera water-tight.
The battery life does indeed appear to double with this addition. If you're up the top of a mountain in sub -20°C temperatures though, don't expect to get more than an hour or two's footage out of it.

Hi, I ski (snowboard) with the camera and also had a problem with the cold conditions drastically reducing the battery time, so..... using the back door I got with the LCD back screen I bought gave me room enough to shove in a pocket hand warmer (tea bag thingy) which kept the operation time nearer it's normal duration (although still slightly less!) Make sure you put something in between the hand warmer and Go Pro though as the hand warmers initially get very hot. (I used a small peice of cloth..... Actually it was a sock haha!)
