GoPro heated housing for extreme cold

I'd like to use my gopro on my snowmobile but due to the extreme cold the battery won't last more than five minutes.

I wonder if there is a heated housing so I can plug in the usb port of my sled.

 

Or what If I use it plug in the usb port would the battery last longer? On the other hand I'd heve to use the housing with the hole on the side for the cable, which would allow for the snow to go in.

 

Does anyone have any ideas?.

Hand warmer before you head out but do not let the air hit it 100%

Re: GoPro heated housing for extreme cold

Plugging the camera into a power source will generally keep it it warm as long as the camera is on. Poke a hole in some duct tape and feed the cable through and then tape over the media port. It should be good enough to keep the snow out. You wouldn't want to submerge the camera like this, but for your snowmobile, it should be fine.

Re: GoPro heated housing for extreme cold

 they make cases like Digipower at Bestbuy  

 

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/digipower-rechargeable-lithium-ion-battery-for-gopro-hero7-black-hero6-...

 

 

Yes we can keep the camera on  do a recording at first before going then keep on that will be the amount of heat needed to run at  the Cold weather  time.  what I personally do is keep my camera in my Pocket when I leave my house in todays   weather at 20 degress , wind chill single digits.  and the camera works, but if I keep it not on and outside  and the battery will be  at 5%.  not ssaying the  accessory will work that way I am saying it is a lot better that was mentioned to duct tape water is an issue and these ports are Not waterproof or resisitant.

I've tried that with my cell but it didn't work.
