I’ve been wanting to either purchase or build a GoPro camera pole. I’ve done quite a bit of research and have decided that I’m going to build my own GoPro pole.
If you’re not very handy, you can still build this reach pole. It’s actually so simple I’m not sure why I didn’t think about it before I saw it. Like I said after reading multiple forum posts, watching a ton of videos, and talking to some friends, I decided to build the GoPro pole in the video below.

Should you buy OEM or cheap knock off parts for your GoPro Hero camera? What’s the difference? In all honestly not that much. You’d actually be surprised at the quality of the knockoff parts available for your hero camera.
I’ve purchased a lot of OEM accessories and have little to no complaints about the fit and function. On the other hand the only real complaint I have about knock off parts is the build quality. The quality of the materials used is not as nice as OEM parts. The knock off parts still work as designed they just don’t have the same build quality of their OEM counterparts.
I would not hesitate for a minute to purchase and use more knock off parts. I recommend parts to friends and family that do not want to pay often times the extremely high prices for OEM parts.
Have you purchased knock off parts? Have complaints? Love em? Let us know which parts you’ve purchased and hate or love..

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.
