Faulty battery has ruined the experience
on 13 November 2016
I bought a GoPro for my boyfriend's birthday, as we had plans to visit Canada and Nepal this year and figured there would be lots of opportunities for using the camera. The first real opportunity was white water rafting in Canada, but when my boyfriend came to switch the camera on, it had no battery. He swore he charged it the day before, however I thought he may have made a mistake. When we next tried the camera again a few months later though, the same thing happened. The camera was fully charged one day, left over night and come the following day the battery was completely flat. We therefore missed the opportunity to use it whilst rafting in Nepal and trekking through the Himalayas. I've looked online, and this seems to have happened to some other GoPro owners too, but both GoPro and Amazon seem unwilling to help at this stage.
