Wasabi Power 2500mAh Extended Battery

GoPro Hero5/6/7 Black, Hero Black, Hero 2018

I have been using Wasabi Power in my GoPros for since 2005 and I have has flawless performance form them! Now Wasabi has come out with an extended battery for the GoPro 5/6 and touts that you can get up to 4 hours of run time from one charge! I am here to tell you without a doubt you can.

What’s Included:

  • Wasabi Power Extended Battery (2500mAh)
  • Extended Battery Frame
  • Extension Arm Mount
  • Thumb Screw
  • Micro-USB charging Cable


All in all this is an excellent buy, especially for anyone that doesn’t want to mess with swapping batteries. However it is not waterproof, so it can only be used in dry conditions. I did make a small modification to one of the frames (I have 3 of these) so that I can slip the battery/camera combo in from the front while still mounted to my bike.

NOT Compatible with the GoPro HERO5 Session or other previous models (e.g. HERO4, HERO3, HERO2).

All Trails Lead to Riches!

All season long, I am outdoors testing new products and consider them for reviews, some I keep, many I don’t. For the ones I don’t keep, once reviewed and photographed, I give them away to followers of The Outdoor Life blog who have subscribed to my newsletter! Products are typically for Biking, Hiking, Backpacking, Kayaking, Camping, and other outdoor activities. Once I accumulate 3-4 items, I use an online random picker and select a name for each item, email you for your address and send it on its way. No strings attached!
