I have the Wasbi (2 batterys and charger).. but that is only good if your around to change the battery... Also you have to stop recording to replace the battery...

I was looking for somethinig that would extend without interruption..

I use this setup. Goal zero guide 10 battery charger inside a pelican case so I can carry this any place I want and sit it down and start recording. 64gig memory card in the GoPro and I can tell you the battery lasts longer then the memory card. You can record for hours and hours with wifi on. I drilled a hole in the side of the pelican case to run the usb cord to the GoPro. Hope this helped. photo.jpg

Really any USB power extender will work, it is just a matter of how big you want to go.

That is a great idea!! Exactly what I have been looking for. I was looking on Amazon, and they have a few different ones listed. Is this the one?

Buy three sets of internal/external batteries. Charge one and take two along for the day. Recharge overnight. Works for me. Have not missed any shots due to battery issues, but admittedly spent a few $$ on batts.

Is that pelican case still water proof with the hole maybe not so much for diving, but from rain or condensation. Also, Is there a way to use that with the water proof housing it is? If not I feel like I may be looking up some DIY stuff soon.

Anyone use this yet? Starting to like the look of this goal zero brand seems very comparable price wise

Hello, guys. The external charger that I have used to charge camera battery is 300w power inverter. Sometimes, I need to charge camera battery outside. Like enjoy the trip in the countryside. simply connect it with car cigarette lighter charger outlet, you can charge tools now. Maybe you can catch more information about this charger on bestekmall. Hope this tip is useful to you. Best regards.
