From what I have read, battery life has alot to do with temperature. I used my gopro for the first time last month and i noticed I got about 1.5 hrs out of mine but I bought an extra battery so if I need to switch it out over the course of a day I can.

do you guys turn the camera on and off every time, or do you let it on standby when not filming.

I have created the following table with details about battery lifetime according to different settings.

View table here: sttr.no GoPro battery lifetime

Take note of changes in recording times just by disabling blinking LED and using Class10 SDHC memory cards.
