Re: How can Hero 8 be used with External Power without Battery & SD card vulnerable?

I am also facing this same delimma. I had another idea that I wanted to run past all of you experts. What about removing the door and then putting on one of the colorful GoPro 8 silicone sleeves.... that I have cut a hole into to let me plug in the charging cable? Has anyone tried this? Any obvious problems with this approach?

 

Thanks

I have uosed my HERO8 in the car, connected via USB cable, and in the beginning before I started getting battery out, it would get really hot. That stopped as soon as I started taking battery out then plugging cable in and switching it on
