Pricing & Battery Life

– GoPro Hero 7 Black VS Hero 7 Silver: Which One To Buy?

Both use 1220mAh lithium-ion rechargeable battery so you will get a similar active time. They can give you power backup for at least 2 hours if you do not use the mobile app as it will reduce its battery life. GoPro cameras never have a stellar battery life so if you use GPS and Protune in the black then they will reduce the battery life further. As black uses a removable battery, we can keep spares in hand to reduce time consumption. Whereas the Silver uses a built-in battery and you can only charge it by connecting the camera directly to a power source using a USB type C cable.

The great thing is you can shoot on both GoPro Hero 7 Black and GoPro Hero 7 Silver while it is charging but that won’t charge the battery but will keep it powered on. The charging will be started once you turn the recording off. The GoPro Hero 7 Black is priced at $222 and Silver is priced at $169.
