Not original, but okay – DSTE Replacement 3.7V 1300mAh Battery for GoPro HD Hero 3 AHDBT-201/301 - Black Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Worked on my Hero 3 Black Edition. If you want to have a spare battery pack for your GoPro Hero 3 this one is perfect. Half of the original price and works the same way. Don't hesitate to buy it!
Cons:
Could be priced cheaper. The paper tab used to pull the battery out of the GoPro seems to be fragile so be careful pulling it out of the camera.
Other:
Considering the ampere is bigger then original (1300 mAh this one and 1050 mAh the original) this battery should left longer but is not what happens. After tests, recording in 1080p @60fps the original battery records for 1hr2min and this one records 57min (5 minutes less). But any way, no big difference. Worth it buy it!
Bottomline:
Even for a non original battery works perfectly as spare battery. I will get two more and the wall charger.
