Re: Hero 6 charging and charger cable

According to the Manual:
Using a wall charger other than a GoPro charging
device can damage the GoPro camera battery and could
result in fire or leakage. With the exception of the GoPro
Supercharger (sold separately), only use chargers marked:
Output 5V 1A. If you do not know the voltage and current
of your charger, use the included USB cable to charge the
camera from your computer.
