GoPro Hero 5 Battery Grip | Extend The Life Of Your Battery

Published

on

In the GoPro world, there are so many accessories you can choose from. There are some that I consider a must-have accessory for every GoPro enthusiast and this is one of them. This is the GoPro battery grip that is compatible with all GoPro generations including the latest Hero 5 Black and Hero 5 Session.  Basically, this is a power bank that is built into the handle of this grip…genius! Most of the time when I am out filming I have the GoPro mounted on a grip or handle of some sort anyway so this makes perfect sense.

Inside the handle is a 6000 mAh power bank that when connected to your GoPro can extend the battery by 5x so we are talking about an extra 4 to 6 hours of extra usage. This is really nice while out for the day, you don’t have to bring 3 or 4 extra batteries with you. There is a standard USB slot on the handle that you can plug your GoPro into using the charging cable that came with your GoPro. However, you may want to purchase a shorter 6″ USB cable so it not dangling in the way. If not you can simply tie up your longer USB cable.

This unit comes with a GoPro mount as well as a smartphone mount so you can charge and mount your phone in a similar fashion. It has a nice rugged design with soft rubber grips to keep the battery grip from slipping out of your hands.

This GoPro battery grip definitely makes into my top 5 must have GoPro accessories.
