One of the most frustrating things that can happen when you’re outside adventuring is a dead GoPro battery. Well, forgetting a memory card can be a bummer too which I happen to do all the time but that is a different story and a harder problem to fix. The Brunton All Day High Capacity Power Supply will extend battery life of your original GoPro battery by about 4 times.
Not only will the All Day provide your GoPro with extended power, it can also serve as a battery to charge a smartphone or tablet (about 2.5 charges). It’s great to have an extra power source for the GoPro but even more beneficial for that power source to have the capability of providing power to multiple devices.
While I’m mentioning added bonuses, I should mention the cable that comes with the Brunton All Day. The 3-in-1 adapter cable not only provides you with a cable to charge the power device, it also provides you with a Micro USB, Lightning, and 30-Pin to USB. The 3-in-1 adapter cable is very beneficial for backcountry travel but we also found ourselves using the cable in the car to clean up the mess of cords that often lingers. It’s similar to Brunton’s new Power Knife so if you’re not in need of a GoPro power source but looking for a 3-in-1 USB, definitely look into it.
The Brunton All Day simply snaps on to the back of the Hero 3+ case (the standard housing) as if it were a backdoor. All you have to do is make sure the original GoPro battery and battery door are removed and this will fit right in. While the All Day snaps and seals into place, it is important to note that this additional power supply is not waterproof. It is weatherproof but not submergible.
If you’re taking long day trips hiking, backpacking, skiing, or dirt biking, the Brunton All Day is definitely something that needs to be added to your gear bag. By the way, this power supply is only $49.99 (a Hero 3+ single battery is $19.99). Named the All Day for a good reason, you won’t want to leave home without it.
