GoPro 5 and GoPro Hero 6 action camera users that find the on-board battery life inadequate for their needs, may be interested in a new external power kit which has been designed both the GoPro 5 and 6 generation cameras.
Watch the video below to learn more about the X~PWR-H5 which has been specifically designed for the GoPro range of action cameras and is now available to back via Kickstarter with pledges starting from just $20 and shipping expected to take place during November 2017.
The creator of the X~PWR-H5 external GoPro power kit explains more about its inspiration and design:
The GoPro HERO action cameras are notoriously short of battery power. It’s a function of the camera’s small size. Up until the introduction of the 3BR Powersports X~PWR all-weather external power case for the HERO3, HERO3+ and HERO4 the only solution was a bulky auxiliary battery pack attached to the back of the camera.
X~PWR was an immediate success and has been the most popular product in the history of 3BR Powersports. With X~PWR’s ability to be powered from any USB power source users could take advantage of the many options available from small auxiliary batteries to vehicle USB power and AC USB converters.
Now with introduction of the HERO5 and HERO6 cameras folks have been asking when we are going to support them as well. The time is now.
