Here is an unboxing and review video of the new charging accessories for GoPro Hero 5 Black and Hero 5 session.

GoPro SuperCharger

The first item we go over is the new SuperCharger from GoPro. It is the latest charger from GoPro that has two USB slot that allows you to charge two devices at once. One is a traditional USB slot that can charge any GoPro or compatible  USB device including the Hero 5 Black and The Hero 5 Session. The second port is a USB-C port that is designed to charge your Hero 5 black super fast via a USB-C cable that comes supplied with the unit. The package also comes with international adaptors which makes this a great accessory for people who travel abroad.

GoPro States that you can charge compatible GoPro devices from 20% to 70% faster when utilizing the USB-C port. I can confirm that my Hero 5 Black and Session do charge significantly faster while using this charger. The Supercharge from GoPro is also a great tool for those that like to shoot long time lapses. You can power your GoPro continuously while plugged into the supercharger for long extended time-lapses or overnight night-lapses.

This charger allows for two Hero 5 Black batteries to be charged simultaneously and when used in conjunction with the Supercharger you can charge both batteries at lightning speed. Another nice feature is its closed design, this allows you to connect a power bank to charge your batteries and place it in your back pack.

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.
