Looking for ideas to extend Hero 5 battery life on the water

I am looking to start doing some on-water recording and I want to integrate clear audio into it.  I've had a Hero5, and I've only used it once.  It will be mounted on the windscreen of my boat, and I am looking for possible solutions for external power AND connecting a external mic at the same time.  What options if any are available for the Hero 5 Black?


THANK YOU

Hi @grandpike85526

 

Leaving the camera door open will NOT make your HERO5 camera waterproof.

I am not sure if other users have made the setup you are trying to achieve.

 

Let's see other user's thoughts on this.

 

Thanks!

Correct, and if I would not use the camera in any inclimate weather for this very reason.  Hopefully someone has a wild hair idea like mine and hopefully they chime in

I did see this product and it would work well for extending battery life, but there then comes the issue of AUDIO.  I would want to also ad an external mic to the camera, and this device will not allow that.
