GoPro 5 & External Power

[ New ]

Hi, I am led to believe i can connect an external poer supply via the usb port and the normal functions of the camera will still work. Record Loop Voice etc.

 

Everytime i connect the external usb the camera displays the USB icon and thats the end of that without removing the cable and reseting the power. ive tried starting to record then connecting and all is fine untill i save the currect recording then back to square one.

 

IS IT POSSIBLE PLEASE

Hello, @timbuggy. The USB symbol only shows up if the camera is connected to a computer or any other device that could read data off the camera. Connect the camera to either a power outlet or a power bank instead.
