This is a superb guide but where can one buy a replacement battery? I have looked on the web for the one in your photo but can't find a specific one.

I want to buy one of these cameras but would like to know I can replace the battery.

Thanks.

I am also trying to find the replacement battery for a Hero+. Have found a lot of batteries for all other versions of Gopro cams, but not one single one for a Hero+.

I have also sent an email to Gopro to get help. I am not prepared for an answer but I really would like to get hold of a battery.

Does anyone know how to get one?

Please contact me: rhafsrhafs@gmail.com. Rikard from Sweden.

Thanks
