Re: Hero 7 Black External Power Issue

Tested Timelapse Photo on Hero 7 Black for 60 minutes. I plugged the power source on to the camera and then started the recording. I used the Sony Ericsson phone power plug, GoPro charging cable that came with my GoPro and it recorded non-stop without any interruption.

Re: Hero 7 Black External Power Issue

Second test to understand Hero 7 Black external power issue;

1. Connected Hero 7 Black to Duracell Power Bank (10000mAh) using charging cable that came with GoPro box
2. Turned the GoPro ON and then started time-lapse video recording with the battery loaded & fully charged. Temperature: 26deg Celsius
3. Stopped recording the time-lapse video after 3 hrs and the video recorded perfectly fine.

Wow ! nice video !
If you're using it on the wing are you supplying extra power ? If so, how ??
