Battery

Battery:
"I thought that a bad battery could be the cause of the device failure."
_
"The first problem was that the battery would not hold a charge for more than 5 minutes."
_
"Battery life isn't great, but I like being able to tweak the settings by editing a file on the card (for those who don't enjoy that kind of hands-on hacking, they have apps that will handle generating the file for you)."
_
"No view finder or window to look through....have no idea what the shot looks like til after you record it and look at it...battery sucks...camera fails after 1-2 months of use...not as good as gopro....gopro has much better camera, better image quality, better battery, has image editing and uploading network....mobius is junk...GET A GOPRO...yeah its a bit more expensive, but you get what you pay for...GOPRO is QUALITY and WILL LAST MUCH LONGER"
