Re: Charging/powering GoPro Max on motorcycle

That was my thought

does anybody know what power output (input) is required to power/charge the max. I can't seem to find it in the manual.

Ok, more details...

checking the output from the bike.

voltmeter between the bike usb and the camera

output 6v 0amps, this appears to indicate that the camera is not pulling any current.


Is it possible that the camera is not pulling any current as the 6v presents a risk.

Ok, all now resolved 

USB was faulty and it appears that the 6v was the issue with the camera 

 

I contacted Nippy Norman's and they confirmed that the voltage should not be >5.25v

NN have replaced the dual USB and now everything is working 

gopro max is working directly from the usb without a battery 

😁
