Top Customer Reviews
I'm also using their NP F975 batteries for various LED panels and lights that I work with, and they're as good or better than original too.
The wasabi hero 5 batteries are working fine with the latest GoPro firmware, no problems at all with fit or performance.
I highly recommend them unless you really feel compelled to pay twice the price to have the GoPro or Sony name on your batteries!
I really like the USB triple charger. I never liked charging my batteries from inside my GoPro, so this triple charger is awesome! It stays sitting on my desk always and I can easily dock my batteries to charge after a day of shooting. The batteries charge very quickly, I think it takes less than 45 minutes to fully charge. Having 3 battery chargers-in-one means that you will always have enough slots to keep up with your charging needs. It also charges my original GoPro batteries just fine.
Blue Nook was the seller and they have great customer support if you ever need it. Thanks Blue Nook and Wasabi Power!
Another pro is that battery life (still) is comparable to the original GoPro branded batteries, so that's good.
However, the pessimistic part of me is wondering what's going to happen when future GoPro firmware updates are released. I know Wasabi states these will work with all future GoPro firmwares but then again, they probably thought the same about the original Wasabi Hero 5 batteries as well: would Wasabi sell batteries they know will have a chance of being rendered useless in the future? How many back and forths are Wasabi and GoPro going to interchange with this whole battery authenticaion stuff?
All that aside, I am impressed with Wasabi's customer service, that's why I'm giving them another shot. I was tempted to give 5 stars but will reserve that until I'm convinced future GoPro firmware releases will not disable these batteries again and leave just 4 for now. We'll see how these go in the future!
EDIT: I didn't know GoPro released FW 1.57 right before I wrote my original review. It kind of surprised me since it was so soon after these Wasabi v03 batteries were released (like within a month). Happy to say that these batteries still work with 1.57. Either GoPro gave up or didn't have enough time to add any firmware to disable these batteries! Fingers crossed!
Terry from Blue Nook (Amazon Marketplace seller for Wasabi) contacted me immediately after I posted this review. He is sending me a replacement. Evidently, there are a small percentage of chargers from a previous shipment that are defective. I'm told there have been no defects discovered in the most recent shipment. I'll post an update once I get the new unit.
