Whether you’re looking for a replacement battery or a spare (or two), here are the model numbers for GoPro batteries that correspond to GoPro cameras.

If you’re new to GoPros, it’s a natural question whether all GoPro batteries are the same. And there’s a simple answer: no, they’re not. You must get the correct model battery for your specific model of GoPro camera. 

Many GoPro batteries look similar, but there can be differences in physical dimensions and contact points between camera models. And in recent years, some have used different technology. So you do need to make sure that you get the right battery for the specific GoPro camera model.

The same goes for external battery chargers. The GoPro Dual Charger for the HERO8 batteries, for example, won’t work with HERO9 batteries. (But the Dual Charger for HERO9 batteries will work with the HERO10 batteries.)

* The HERO12 Black and HERO11 Black will also work with the Standard Battery (ADDBD-001). But the Enduro battery will offer better performance and is the battery that GoPro ships with those cameras and recommends for them.

In some cases, there’s more than one model number that can be used in a particular camera. For instance, some batteries have been tweaked and replaced with newer iterations, along the lines of AHDBT-201 and AHDBT-301. In those cases, I’ve listed the most recent iteration, which is both the newer version and is generally more widely available.

I should mention, too, that I’m referring here to the official GoPro model numbers. Aftermarket batteries can also be good value, and they often perform well (but quality and quality control can vary). They nearly always refer to the same official GoPro battery model numbers, so a search for these model numbers should also be useful for finding aftermarket versions.

Things Worth Knowing About GoPro Batteries

There’s more than one way to charge GoPro batteries. I’ve included the corresponding external battery charger models in the table above, but the batteries can also be charged directly in the camera (with a USB charger cable). The charger models I’ve listed above are the official ones put out by GoPro, but there are many aftermarket external charger cradles that also work well.

Some GoPro cameras don’t have removable batteries. They have built-in internal batteries that can’t be replaced. The most recent GoPro models like that are the HERO11 Black Mini, HERO7 Silver, and HERO7 White, but the same is true for all Session models and some of the older models.

Aftermarket batteries by third-party manufacturers can often be very good options. Many of them perform well, and they can provide much better value than the official GoPro-branded ones. But quality control can vary with some of the no-name brands. And it is at least theoretically possible for GoPro to cut off compatibility with aftermarket batteries with camera firmware updates. They’ve actually done that once—back with the HERO5—but it’s not something that camera manufacturers do often.

In some cases, there can be more than one type of battery that’s compatible with the camera (I’m referring here to differently performing batteries, not the smaller model number tweaks I refer to above). So far, that only affects the HERO9 Black, HERO10 Black, HERO11 Black, and HERO12 Black. All of those will work with the latest Enduro batteries, but the earlier models in that list come with the Standard battery (with the HERO12 Black and HERO11 Black, the Enduro is the recommended battery to use).

GoPro Battery Compatibility FAQs

Are all GoPro batteries the same?

No, not all GoPro batteries are the same. While many of them have looked similar over the years, there are important differences, and it’s important to get the right model of battery for your specific camera.

That said, some battery models are retained for a few camera models in a row, so there are times when upgrading when you can use batteries you might already have on hand.
