Recording for 24h straight with my Hero 5 - time-lapse...

I'm planning to record 24h straight with my Hero 5 - time-lapse and I'm looking for a solution - external power bank or any other that will allow me to use the camera for 24h straight. It doesn't have to be waterproof. Any suggestions?

Hi @zorano8100,

 

You can get any reliable power bank brands. 

Remove the battery to avoid battery damage and make sure that the camera is connected.

Thanks Jay. Another question, can I keep the power bank connected to power, so while the bank is charging GoPro, that bank is charged at the same time - because I don't think that there is a power bank that will last 24h.

Hi @zorano8100,

 

I think there is those power bank that has 20,000Mah.
Not sure if that charging the power bank and charging the camera is a good idea.

Thank you, Jay.

I got it. Now I'll just have to test it.
