    Battery bacpac

    I am thinking of buying the battery bacpac. I was wondering what kind of extended times are folks seeing using the battery bacpac? Is it worth it, or is it better to buy a second battery then just swap it out when needed?



    Thanks

    I get a good four hours of shooting the with it. You won't be able to use it with the chest strap. it makes the camera too thick and the camera points downwards. Unless I am missing something.

    Thanks,
    I let the unit run last night, an recorded the clock. Got a little more than 2.5 hours out of the standard battery. I think Im going to buy the Wasabi power option for 25 vs the backpack for 50. This way I get a wall charger, a car cahrger, and 2 additional batteries for the unit for half the price.

    You can allways flip the camera up side down. works great

    I bought one but found it too bulky.. I use it to charge my batteries.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.
