I would generally agree with this observation along the price point for most personal-use devices with battery power these days. I did plenty of research and found the GeekPro 4.0 which was realistically priced at 120 and has a 1050mah battery that has reviews indicating a real world battery life of 1.5 hrs of recording time at 1080/60fps. When I tried it out the battery life estimate seems correct. That seems comparable to the GoPro 3 or 4's reported battery life. Any action camera seems to require multiple batteries for a full day outing but anything that only lasts 20 or 30 mins is problematic.
