Re: is it okay to charge the gopro hero 5 on the power bank with 3.1 A output?

Great Question @epicsand4427.

USB 3.0 Fast Charging At 3 Amps won't hurt, but its recco0med to do 1 amp.

Like an iPhone, or Android Charger.

I bought a powerbank with 3.1A output, I'm just asking if it's not affect the battery life or it's not recommended to use in hero5

[ Edited ]

your gopro has a rating of an Amp, do not plug in four devices that has a rating of an amp each or you will pop it. so yes you can use it the powerbank for your product.   you have an inpuy rating of 3.0 amp with an output of 5.0vdc not 3.0am output.

 

Maybe I missread it Lol  But I see it as a curcuit breaker of 3.0A and  when you overload the breaker, it will pop and that rating is 3.0A each product has a output rating ofXXamount add that up to find your load capacity.

Your welcome @epicsand4427.

The battery life is a little affected like a phone.

It won't last 2 years it will last a year and half if you use

the 3A all the time, so it's fine.
