Best Power Bank For Your GoPro

Published

on

When it comes to power banks and portable chargers for your GoPro Hero 5 or previous generations of GoPro’s there are definitely plenty to choose from. I have been using portable power to keep my GoPro’s charged while on the go for several years and I find the Anker power banks are always a good choice.

I love creating time lapses and long night lapses and some days I am out from morning until night capturing natures beauty with my GoPro’s. For me having reliable portable power is a must to keep me charged up all day so I can get the shots I need.  I use Anker power banks while I am doing long extended 8 hour or longer night-lapses. I just simply plug into my GoPro and it will keep it powered reliably all night long. Anker power banks are light weight and powerful, they keep all my cameras and devices charged quickly and safely with the IQ technology that adjust the voltage automatically depending what its charging, selecting the fastest way to charge your device without damaging it.

Anker power banks have simplistic and beautiful design all while remaining rugged to hold up to my daily charging and sometimes demanding needs. There are many different models to choose from depending if you just want a small pocket sized power bank or a unit that will power you all day.

The Anker PowerCore 10000 has a capacity of 10000 mAh with a footprint about the size of a credit card, just thicker. This unit can recharge your GoPro Hero 5 about 7 times quickly and safely. It can recharge your iPhone 6 up to 4 times. This is a great portable power bank that fits comfortably in your pocket for portable recharging on the Go.

Updated 2018 GoPro Chesty Mount

Published

on

In this video are taking a closer look at the new and updated 2018 GoPro Chesty. GoPro quietly released several new products this summer including and updated seeker backpack, silicon cases and a new updated chest mount. The design is quite different and now has a large back plate. I find it has a very similar design to the chest mount that is included when you buy the Seeker backpack. I think this is to help provide a more stable platform for this who like to mount gimbals when mountain biking. The larger chest plate should help prevent the gimbal from bouncing around as much.

This video is more of a “closer look” style video mainly due to the fact that there is not a lot of information or photos on the GoPro website about this new updated chest mount and some people may want to have a better look at it before they decide if it is worthwhile to upgrade.

The Best Case For Your GoPro

Published

on

Over the years I have used and reviewed many styles of GoPro storage cases, some hard shell and some soft. I always found the same problem with them and that is they are for the most part never customizable. This can be a big issue especial when you think that each and every one of us uses different gear and accessories and that makes it difficult to find a case that is suitable. Not to mention if you want to carry a gimbal in your kit…forget it. Most cases come with pre-cut inserts with spots for GoPro’s and various gear, many case come with 2 or 3 spots for cameras. But what if you only own one camera, that space is now wasted.

I recently came across this case by BUBM and instantly knew it was the perfect case for me. This case takes a different approach and instead of pre-cut foam it has a series of straps and pocket in different sizes. This allows you to securely pack you gear in what ever configuration that makes the most sense to you. You can pack just one GoPro or ten if you wish, You can even pack a gimbal and even a small extension pole. BUBM offers the case in two sizes a medium and large. They even offer the cases in three different colors (blue, black and grey). This case is durable and has a nice build quality, it’s a soft-shelled case but very rigid to help give you some crush protection. I have booth the medium and large version so I can pack depending on how much gear I need to take and I have been extremely pleased with them.

The other nice thing about this style of case is that it’s not design for specific GoPro’s. If you upgrade cameras down the road you know your case will work if the form factor changes. Watch our video review below.
