What is this GoPro 2 ended Usb Cable

Can you tell me what this 2 ended usb cable is for?  It has 2 regular usb plugs (male) and 1 mini usb plug (malej.

 It was in the bundle we got with hero 3 accessories including the lcd touch bacpac and battery bacpac.

 

we are new to GoPro hence just buying a cheaper one to see how we go, we also have a GoPro 4 as well.

 

thanks

Re: What is this GoPro 2 ended Usb Cable

Hello, @guardsmanjohno. The cable that you got is simply a charging cable. This is used particularly for the 3D system where two HERO 3 cameras are used at the same time. The cable helps keep both cameras charged.

Re: What is this GoPro 2 ended Usb Cable

We thought that It was to charge 2 cameras except it has only 1 end which can plug into a camera and 2 usb Plugs which plug into 2 usb sockets on a computer Or power sockets. You can’t plug in 2 cameras to this cable only 1 and the usbs are both male so it’s not a plug through cable either which would allow 2 usbs in the one socket as both usb ends are male! I tried to find a way to contact GoPro but could only find this community contact for support.

Thank you for trying to help - just no way to plug in 2 cameras 😊
