GoPro Hero 5 Black amperage draw

I've been attempting to determine what size battery I should get to power 2 or 3 GoPro Hero 5 Blacks during a full day of fishing. 

 

When I'm fishing in my own boat I use 10 foot USB cables for each camera to connect to the boat battery. 

 

However, for this trip we'll be in a small boat that may not have a boat battery.  I'm thinking of getting a motorcycle battery since it is smaller and easily portable.  I just want to be sure I get one that has capacity for a full day of recording with 2 or 3 cameras.

 

Thus my question of the amperage draw from the cameras so I can figure which battery to purchase!

 

Thanks

Hello @fireycreek27580

 

A charger or power source that will output 5V, 2A to the camera is recommended for the HERO5 Black.

 

Thanks, 
Marius
