This morning I tried a 720p with 60 FPS and the goPro cut off around 60-70 minutes into my ride this morning. Which I thought was a bit short, only an hour worth of recording time? The SD card had plenty of space on it as well, so I'm guessing I may need to get the battery pack if I want it to last longer.
It depends what type of GoPro you have. 60FPS is only really necessary if you want to show slowmo video. However if you have a GoPro3 Black, that is the minimum. If you don't then cutting down to 30fps (or 25fps depending on PAL or NTSC setting) definitely extends the battery life. However, 60-70 mins on 720 with 60FPS is pretty bad. You should get closer to 120 minutes at least.
I do use the battery pack for my GoPros. I have the GoPro1 and 3 (Silver). The older battery packs and batteries are cheaper if you can find them and are compatible. The only downside is they are silver, not black.
