Other features of the GoPro Hero3 include a 1050 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery, with a up to 64 GB of external microSD storage. iFixit have awarded the GoPro Hero3 action camera with a 7 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair) for repairability. But say that because the display cable is adhered to the midframe, replacing the LCD requires use of a heat gun.
