WeatherProof External Charging For GoPro Hero 5/6 Black | X~PWR-H5 Review

Published

on

Have you ever wished you could have your GoPro Hero 5 Black or GoPro Hero 6 Black plugged into external power so you can do extended time-lapses or recordings without having to worry about rain or moisture getting into the ports? You should check out the X~PWR-H5 by 3BR Power sports. With this add-on for your Hero 5 or Hero 6 you can create a water-resistant seal on your existing GoPro frame.

With this kit, you get everything you need to modify your stock Hero frame. This is a non-damaging modification as it just sticks on with an adhesive that can be removed if needed. Once the kit is installed, it allows you to plug your GoPro Hero 5/6 Black into a power bank or outlet using their specially designed USB-C Cable and keep your GoPro charged while recording for extended periods outdoors without risk of damaging your GoPro from the rain. Not only does it keep out moisture but dust as well. If you are a moto vlogger you know how dust can quickly accumulate in the ports of your GoPro when you have the door open for charging. This can over time cause your GoPro to malfunction, trying to blow it out with compressed air can actually drive it deeper within the ports. The X~PWR-H5 prevents this from happening and allows you to record your activities worry-free. If you are using an older Hero 4 series camera, they even sell a casing for them as well.

The X~PWR-H5 USB-C cable comes in various lengths depending on how much slack you need in the cable. It’s a good idea to get one long enough to allow you to tuck away the power bank in a pocket or backpack.

My 2019 Minimalist GoPro / Camera Travel & Adventuring Kit

Published

on

Earlier in the week, I uploaded a YouTube video titled “What’s In My Drone/Camera Backpack for 2019” basically showing what gear I pack and bring with me when flying my drone, hiking or just out adventuring. Now here is my 2019 minimalist camera kit that I take with me when traveling and I want to pack light. My 2019 version of my minimalist GoPro/Camera travel kit has some new editions from last year. To start things off, the case I use when traveling is the GoPro Casey, I like it because I find it to be a perfect size. It’s not too big, yet not too small and can hold an ample amount of gear. For the most part, I only bring what can be fit inside this case. Watch my YouTube video to see what gear I pack inside minimalist camera kit when traveling, you be surprised how simple and streamlined it is, yet still all the gear I need to capture our adventures. All the gear I pack is listed at the bottom of this post if you saw something you liked and want to check it out further.

It has a USB-A port that can be used to charge any devices such as GoPro’s, smartphone or any device that supports USB charging. It has a USB-C port that is input only for recharging the power bank.
