I use a 20000mAH powerbank with GoPro8 and will only record video for 16 seconds (each time)

I have no problem recording when I use the 1 ft. cable that came with the camera but when I use a 6 ft. cable it will stop recording.  I have both 1A and 2.1A outputs on powerbank.  Is one better to use than the other and is the length of the cable (usb-A to usb-c) an issue ?

Entferne de Akku, wenn Du die Kamera extern versorgst ...

Certain cables may or may not work.

1amp might be a bit low if your using high recording settings, but its a good chance your longer cable isn't thick enough & can't supply the power it needs

Das ist mir kürzlich auch aufgefallen. Ein USB Kabel, welches bis 3A zum Schnelladen Geräte versorgen kann, aber 2m lang ist. DIe GoPro saugt dann den Akku leer und schaltet ab, obwohl diese über das Kabel versorgt wird.

Akku entfernen und schon funktioniert alles wie erwartet.

MIt dem kurzen Originalkabel gibt es auch mit Akku kein Problem.
