There’s not another GoPro camera accessory on the market that is like the power pole. The power pole eliminates the need for constantly changing the batteries in your camera. It’s one of those camera accessories that you say “Why didn’t I think of that”.
The power pole has a 5200 mAh battery built into grip. The 5200 mAh battery is built into the handle and has a Usb connection near the top of the monopod where the camera connects. It not only has one Usb connection it has two. You can charge two devices at once or leave the camera on the monopod plugged in. PoloarPro PowerPole claims the power pole will extend the GoPro film time up to ten hours. That’s huge! We all know the one big downfall of the GoPro camera is the battery life. If you can get better quality video and not have to change the battery out every hour, this could be a win win.
The power pole serves two basic functions. It serves as a basic monopod and also a battery storage compartment. The power pole extends from the 17 to 30″ position to help get those awesome angles when shooting video.
The Usb connection has a splash proof cover that helps protect it from light rain/snow and any other water related activities.
