As title asks, can I use GoPro Hero 7 battery on my new Hero 8?  I have 6 Hero 7 batteries and  would rather not have to buy new batteries if I don't need too.

You can use it, but some features in the HERO8 won't work as I understand.  I don't know why, but that is what I have been told.

Found this

"Previous Batteries will work with the HERO8 Black with limitations. Users may see performance issues when shooting in high performance modes. For this reason, we suggest only using the HERO8 Battery in the HERO8 Black camera. "

I just got an 8 and was using my 7 batteries and don't see any negatives yet.   Just saying.  

Try them.

Which points of the camera don't work with the older batteries?
