Long Hero 9 Charge Cable For Car Recommendations

Hi


I want to be able to power my GoPro Hero 9 Black using my car's USB port (or the 12V outlet using a 12V to USB adapter) to save the battery life when recording trips.


Sadly, the cable that comes with the GoPro is far too short for this. I was looking at this cable:

Has anybody tried this cable, and if so, is it compatible (for charging AND data transfer) with the GoPro Hero 9 or have recommendations for a good quality USB-C to USB 3.1 cable?

 

Thanks in advance.

Nevermind, I'm returning my Hero 9 camera, it constantly freezes, the battery life is awful, my PC refuses to recognise the camera, and the image quality is a massive disappointment.

 

The last camera I had was a Hero 3, that constantly kept turning off.

 

This will be the last GoPro camera I will ever buy.

 

So long GoPro, been bitten once too many.

I've already returned the camera to BestBuy for a refund, but I will be needing an RMA on my recent order from your store because despite the fact that it hadn't shipped, I wasn't allowed to cancel my order, so I will be returning that the second it arrives.
