One way to offset this is to always keep a set of batteries warm, and swap into the camera before shooting video.
20-25 minutes?? Seriously? That's horrible.
I actually made a ghetto helmet cam out of velcro and a $12 M.I.C. spycam. Video quailtiy is decent, but shake is pretty bad. Also, the fact that I couldn't tell if it was recording or not, made me miss most good footage.
