GoPro Hero 3 or 3+ charging kit

Wasabi Power

Batteries die quickly in my GoPro cameras. Wasabi Power's handy kit comes with 2 extra batteries and a wall wart.

I get around 1 hour of recording from a single battery, based on the settings our video editor Eric recommends. On a typical dive day of scuba diving I need several batteries, and if I am on a trip I'll need to recharge them again for the next day. This kit has me covered. GoPro ridiculously expects you to charge via the camera's USB. It takes forever.

There is also an adaptor for charging in your car. I have not used it.

Wasabi Power Battery (2-Pack) and New Charger for GoPro HD HERO3+, HERO3 and GoPro AHDBT-201, AHDBT-301, AHDBT-302

  1. The company that makes the Wasabi charger also makes other branded chargers.

    I recognize the charger's shape. I purchased a a charger, 12DC cord, a pair of batteries (both twice the capacity of the factory battery) for my Panasonic video camera - at half the price of the factory battery. Great stuff!

    As we say in French: beau, bon, pas cher!

  2. Well, you could use it in a 12V adapter on your yacht, no?

    /You shoot stills? Like stills used for alcohol? Talk about specialization.
