I have a GoPro Hero 5 Black camera. I want to make timelapse videos with the default settings of TimeLapse video mode in the camera. I also want the camera plugged in since the time lapse will be running for a long time. If I connect the power cord before starting time lapse recording, it shows it is charging. However, once I start recording in time lapse mode, it stops charging.

Is it possible to record in time lapse mode and charge the camera at the same time? Do I need to change settings to enable this?

  • Have you verified that it runs out of power? It could be that it keeps drawing power from the power source even though it doesn't show that it is charging. Dec 30 '19 at 20:18
