Fairly Long Battery Life

The battery lifes of camcorders of this type and age range from 0.083h to 5h. The The Game ActION has a fairly long battery life (3 hours) compared to most of the other camcorders of this type and age.

We compared all the other 3h battery life camcorders to this video camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Veho Muvi HD NPNG[plb_2384279_price] is also worth considering.

If you want a camcorder with a longer battery life then you might want to look at the Drift Innovation Drift Ghost-S Action[plb_2962227_price] (4h).
