Complete newbie here, recently purchased a hero 5black from GoPro refurbished eBay site, I have a slight issue, that the battery won't charge past 30%, even after 12 hrs on charge, I've received a second battery, alas no joy, so it seems the fault lies with the cameras charging system.
While I wait for the reply for a replacement, I read somewhere that a similar fault has plagued others, and charging on a stand alone charger may result in a full charge, so, at long last, the question is, will any GoPro, or after market charger wor, or does it have to be specific for a hero 5 black?

Because the batteries shape and connections have changed for each model you will have to get a charger that is specific to the HERO 5.
