Im not sure on the exact battery to be honest i can take a pic tomorrow if that helps? I got mine from actioncameras.co.uk because i didn't want to risk a fake of ebay. It was 20 quid but if you get a discount code you should be able to get some money off.

Its a niche camera that doesn't sell in huge numbers.. so highly unlikely to be a target for fakery. I wouldn't have a problem of trust in the genuine batteries that are on sale on eBay... and I don't see why there would be a problem with copies either. its not the sort of camera that would use a 'chipped' battery.


by 'chipped' I mean the batteries used in many high value cameras have a chip that is recognised by the cameras software.. so this means most fakes wont have this chip and so will not work. or not work as they should.

I agree with you 100% but for the sake of a few quid i bought through a reputable seller. After spending 225 on a camera i thought why try and save a few quid on the battery.

Hello after testing it for quite some time it seems to work flawless, only problem i have had is the sticky pads only working once, which i did not know as i misplaced it.


Ordered new ones and perfect.

Spare battery works a treat, only downside of the camera is the amount of time it can run.

I use a ghost and debating an external mic.


I am damned if it looks waterproof when using the external mic though. Anyone able to comment on that?

 

Its not waterproof with the external mic i got caught in a rain shower and it ended up misting up the camera.

How long are you getting from a battery? Make sure wi-fi is off as it kills the battery if left on.

I got a Drift HD 1080 a couple of years ago for a trip to Scotland.

Great camera. easy to work with.

3-4 hours battery life is good, if you want to record ALL day you only need one spare and some spare sd cards.

I love the remote on/off which you can strap to your wrist. I have this strapped around the brake reservoir.
