Freewell Triple Charger for the GoPro Hero 5 Black

Published

on

Today we are taking a look at the triple charger by Freewell for the GoPro Hero 5 Black. This charger has a nice slim design that easily fits into your pocket and doesn’t take up much room in your backpack or camera bag. It has a nice carbon fiber look and feels durable and strong. This GoPro battery charger is capable of charging 3 GoPro Hero 5 batteries simultaneously in just under 2 hours which is really nice.

One of the best features of this battery charger is the fact that it is an enclosed unit. This design allows for the charger to act as a battery case for your Hero 5 batteries instead of having them floating around loose in your camera bag, they are quite small and can be hard to find that way. The other benefit is you can plug the Freewell GoPro Charger into a power bank and charge all your batteries on the go. Because it has a lid the batteries stay securely in place while charging even if cycling or hiking, jostling around in your bag won’t knock them loose.

During my testing, I found that using an Anker power bank I was able to charge 3 batteries all drained to under 5% in just under 2 hours. You can use any USB socket to use this charger. The port on the charging unit is a USB-C type socket and comes with a USB-C cable. There are built-in LED lights to signify when the batteries are charging. Red LED’s means the batteries are charging and when they turn blue they are finished.

LED’s change from red to blue when charging is complete.

All in all, I am extremely pleased with this GoPro charger and would recommend it to anyone who is in the market for a multi-charger for their GoPro Hero 5 Batteries. You can watch our YouTube video review below.

GoPro Vlogging Case | How To Connect A Microphone To The GoPro Hero 7 Black

Published

on

In this video review, we are taking a closer look at a new style of casie for the GoPro Hero 5/6/7 Black that is aimed at vloggers. This new style of case or as some would call it “housing” has a built-in cavity that can hold the GoPro microphone adapter. When connecting a microphone to the Hero 7 Black you must use GoPro’s microphone adapter which for the most part is a big brick. In the past when you set up a GoPro vlogging rig you would have this adapter hanging off the back and it would always be in the way. There are some DIY methods for managing all these cables and adaptors but they really just were not all that convenient.

A few months ago these new styles of GoPro vlogging cases with a built-in microphone adapter holder started popping up on Amazon and eBay. I ordered one in to take a look at it and I really was quite impressed and wondered why it took so long for someone to come up with this idea. The other necessary component when setting up a GoPro Vlogging rig is you need a way to attach your microphone, most commonly this is called a cold shoe. In the past, there have been many offerings of aluminum GoPro cases that had a built in cold shoe and for the most part, they have always worked well (except dangle mic adapter). The downside to these cases is they were quite heavy and added a lot of bulk to your rig. This new style of vlogging case is made of durable plastic and is significantly lighter. They also feature a raised cold shoe for connecting a microphone, this raised cold shoe helps keep the microphone out of the GoPro’s wide field of view.

You can watch our video review of this new style of GoPro Vlogging case that is compatible with the GoPro Hero 7 Black, Hero 6 Black and Hero 5 Black.

Here is a quick unboxing video of the new GoPro Hero 7 Black Dusk White Limited Edition that GoPro released on March 3. It is available for purchase on the GoPro website as well as select stores around the world. As of the posting of this article, it is not available on Amazon yet and I am not sure if it will be. This new Dusk White GoPro is not to be confused with the Hero 7 White which is GoPro’s budget entry level camera, this is a full-fledged Hero 7 Black just with a new limited edition look. There are no hardware changes all internal components, specs, and features are the same as the original Hero 7 Black.
