Battery swapping idea

Hello GoPro, 

 

I had an idea today on how to swap batteries on the go. 

Would it be possible to add a USB C port on the battery. 

Then then if you need to swap out a low battery with a fresh one tether the new fresh one to the camera through the USB C port (GoPro charging port) to power the camera. Then pull out your depleted battery and pop in your knew one. 

Untether and your ready to rock and roll without ever having to turn the camera off.

Re: Battery swapping idea

Yes.  You can use a Powerbank while the Battery is inside, and swap out batteries and  plug in & out as needed. what I shown doing a few vids.     Owner of a Hero 8. Hero 7  I have to verify that again
