Good day support team.


Short question:
Is it safe to use thunderbolt 3 port on my laptop to charge and transfer information in case of Go Pro Hero 6


Thank you for reply in advance.

Re: charging gp hero 6

Yes, you should be fine. The charge time will be longer than if you use a wall charger, but using your computer port is fine. Just a note, it's best to have your laptop plugged in while charging.

Re: charging gp hero 6

computer  will charge the longest at 80% fast charge 20% slow charge, you'll  see the red led go on and off about five times after the  innitial 2 plus hours that will indicate the   remaining 20%.
