    I have the Go Pro battery back pack that snaps on to the rear of the camera. Works very well. I also bought extra batteries to carry with me just in case.

    I had the Wasabi battery kit, two or three extra batteries and the AC wall charger. Worked well enough.

    I recall the Wasabi batteries had a bit less duration run time in the camera, compared to the original GoPro battery. Overall the Wasabi batteries were fine.

    That said, I sold the whole works last year. GoPro with extra batteries, almost all of the mounts. Probably should start thinking about a replacement action camera

    Nice
    Wonder how would the floaty keep it from sinking with the extra weight?
    Hmmmm

    It specifically says in the instructions that it may not float with the floaty. My Hero 2 with the battery back pack and the floaty barely floated. I think my Hero 3 sinks with the floaty and battery back pack. Thats why I haven't actually used it on the ski yet.

    I have thought of doing that. Some day I will get around to making a tether for it. I just skip the battery back pack for now in case I do break the camera from its mount.
