Millions of people have used GoPro’s wearable cameras to record their every sky-diving, drone-flying, shark-riding adventure. When thinking about why GoPro is so popular, some GoPro fans will say:“They don’t just sell a video camera, they sell the memory of the wave or the ski trip down the slope,” The GoPro is extremely small and lightweight, which is very convenient when filming yourself with sports or just action shots. In a short, this is great if you’re skiing or surfing and you can even get cool first-person angles for the sports or action videos.
This camera maker is a favorite among surfers, bikers, skydivers, pretty much anyone who’s looking to strap a camera to her person—or drone—and capture an adventure. But more than that, not only adventure fans but also lots of normal people will use it during a trip or in daily life. You can use Wi-Fi button that let you quickly change the settings on whichever mode the camera is in at the time and share your cool first-person angles video immediately.
GoPro is such a great revolutionary product, which may remind you of the first iPhone or iPad. But when you insert “why GoPro is so” in google, the first sentence google thinks is “why GoPro is so expensive”.
But GoPro comes at a price point that is very steep for most of its target consumers. The latest GoPro Series, Hero 4, comes in 2 different versions: Silver ($399.99) and Black ($499.99) editions. For some people, these sums are just way beyond their financial range.
OK, even you come over the price problem, but do you know what’s disadvantage of GoPro except for expensive price?
The most common and enduring complaint about GoPro cameras is that they chew through GoPro batteries. Unfortunately, shorter battery life is the cost of shooting large images at a high frame rate in a small camera. The Hero 4 gets about the same two-hour battery life as the previous models. What would you do in these short two hours? Or would you like to have some smart solution for your X-sports?
A power bank for GoPro and your smartphone is a smart solution for the short battery life of your GoPro.
When looking at the feasibility, the input of GoPro is 1A, the input of your smartphone is usually 2A. So I would like choose a power bank with smart technology and 10000mAh capacity, so that it can identify the type of device and output the suitable electric current for your device. Here I choose a power bank from EasyAcc with 10000mAh capacity to supply the GoPro 4 Black, it is 10000mAh with 2 smart ports from 0.2-2.4 amp. What is wonderful is that this EasyAcc power bank can identify the type of device and output the suitable electric current. When the power bank identifies the GoPro and deliver 1 amp electric current, the battery will be correctly charged. When you want to use Wi-Fi connection with your smartphone, you can also connect the power bank with your phone and it can identify it and deliver 2 amp electric current for your phone.
Here I estimated a 1180mah GoPro battery lasts about 2hrs in 1080/30, so our GoPro can work with a 10000mAh power bank for 8hrs. So that with a power bank we were looking at about 12hrs run time.
A right power bank for GoPro camera could keep you move freely. The one from EasyAcc uses the best 10000mAh level A+ Lithium-ion polymer batteries with high conversion rate, but is super light and slim to fit your hand and pocket.
What’s the weakness of GoPro except for the expensive price? And will you solve the battery problem with a smart power bank?
