    I can try this, just give me 24 hours to start the test and then read the results. I will do this indoors, outdoors the battery life will be different (shorter if it is very cold).

    If you are looking to go longer than 2 hours I would probably just wire the cam into micro usb power. My experience with helmet cams is that they are always dying sooner than they should. As satur9 said, cold weather really destroys battery life.

    Still testing, I had to recharge the battery to full condition so I started the test just a couple of hours ago - still running.

    3 hours 56 minutes, but only 5984 pictures. It looks like the 1 second interval is after saving the previous one, not after taking it, so it is 2.366 seconds on average between 2 photos.
