Your GoPro Can Record For 10 Straight Hours If You Mount It On The PowerPole

We’ve seen plenty of extension poles for mounting the GoPro. The PowerPole, however, does everything else one better by integrating a large battery into the pole, allowing it to charge your GoPro on the go, removing the need to switch to a fresh battery every couple of hours.

Armed with a 5,200 mAh battery, it adds the equivalent of 4.5 GoPro batteries onto your supply of juice, giving users an extra eight hours of recording time all on its own. Whether you’re recording a kayaking session on the water, taking laps on a go-kart in a track, or just taking selfies with a GoPro while riding a unicycle for no reason whatsoever, just find a way to mount the pole onto your gear and capture near half a day’s worth of video without swapping batteries at any point in time.

Made by Polar Pro, the PowerPole is extendable from 17 to 30 inches, giving you plenty of options in angles and applications. Construction is high-grade aluminum from tip to tip, so it’s both lightweight at 13 ounces and tough enough to survive most accidents in the thick of the action. It comes with a mount that can swivel at a 90-degree angle (for recording at the exact positions you like), a durable silicone grip for comfortable handling, and two USB slots for charging phones and other gadgets from the onboard battery. It’s splash-proof, so you can get the pole wet with no danger of damaging the battery, although it’s not waterproof, so submerging in water is not an option.

    Awesome! Not that battery life is a big deal when filming short scenes with the GoPro, but my guess is that this will sell very well!

    I can see a lot of people using this to monitor their area every so often, maybe see if any animals are in the area. Hunters could use it. 10 hours is a long time and it can record a lot in that time.

    Anyways, it’s a pretty cool device. I might have to get one for myself. 🙂

    Not see how they can suggest using it on the water when it needs to have the cable connected to get the extra power, which means it doesn’t have the protective waterproof case while it is using the extra battery power.

    That disgruntled news reporter used a Go Pro camera to film his crazy behavior in Virginia yesterday. He went to a live interview being done by the channel that fired him, and he shot and killed the news reporter and cameraman who were doing the interview. He also shot the lady they were interviewing, and then he turned the gun on himself. He was given life saving care but didn’t make it. Sorry to post about that on your blog, but when I saw the go pro, it reminded me of Bryce Williams heinous act, and I couldn’t hold my tongue about the incident. I still love GoPro, but hate that this guy used one to make and upload videos of his murder spree.
