Can I power my GoPro from a USB port on my motorcycle?

Postby DeanoBeano » Wed Dec 10, 2014 6:21 am

I'm travelling to Ukraine next year and will be running a GoPro Hero 4 on the front of my motorbike. I have a USB port on my motorbike so will it be possible to just plug the GoPro into the uSB port and leave it permanently powered to save the battery running out?

Do you know what output the USB port on your bike will provide??
I reckon it will be OK, but would double check.....

No sorry I'm not sure of the output but I'll try it tomorrow once my GoPro arrives.
