Battery Eliminator - External Portable Power Supply

Postby bombero » Mon Aug 10, 2015 10:38 pm

I've just ordered a battery eliminator that acts like a dummy battery. I'm now shopping around for a portable battery pack. Most of these packs have to USB outputs - one at 1A and one at 2.1A (some even have 2.4A available). Excuse my lack of understanding here, but what's the safest to power my GoPro?

They are all safe as the camera only pulls what it needs. How much power depends on mode but some will pull a little more than 1A so it is probably best to go 1.5A or better.

I went with the plug from Hyper juice, plugs in the wall x2 10w usb ports. Plenty of power and battery life, recharges by plugging in the wall.
