Re: Can I charge my GoPro7 Black using a usb c male-male cable?

@daringlift82261, since not all USB-C cables are the same, some may only support certain data, transfer speeds, or protocols such as transferring data and power simultaneously. It is recommended to use the GoPro USB-C cable provided with your camera for charging and computer connection. If you only have a USB-C wall charger or plug available, you may need to use a USB-C to USB adapter. Check out this article for more information about GoPro camera's recommended chargers.

Many thanks for clear and helpful advice!  My new international power adapter has a usb-c charging option offering 5v/300mA. As you suggest, I'll use the usb cable supplied by GoPro along with a usb-3.x female - usb-c male adapter.
