Core SWX DV-GP3-USBPS overview

  • 1Description

The GoPro Battery Eliminator with Wall Adapter from Core SWX is designed to provide a secure way of powering a HERO3 or HERO3+ action camera from an external USB power source. The GoPro's form factor may be a major part of the camera's appeal, but it limits the effective battery life to what an internal battery can provide. Where the camera is readily accessible, it is simple enough to keep spare GoPro batteries on hand and simply swap out as needed. However, especially as a growing number of professional filmmakers are drawn to the GoPro's versatility, the camera is increasingly finding itself placed in spots that are difficult to access for a quick battery change. The GoPro Battery Eliminator employs a similar concept to a DC coupler that you may be familiar with from camcorders and DSLRs, using a coupler plate that mimics the original battery, but with a 10' power cord that terminates in a USB type A male power connector.

Since the HERO3 and HERO3+ cameras support USB charging, you can use the Battery Eliminator to power the camera from nearly any 5 VDC USB source: a laptop computer, portable powering station, car USB port, or even the included AC wall adapter. In addition, using optional transformers, it is possible to adapt the USB to power from 12 VDC sources such as car batteries or professional video battery systems.

If a housing is used, the Battery Eliminator requires the Skeleton Housing. It is also possible to use the Underwater Housing with the Skeleton back door. Using the Underwater Housing will still provide splash protection from the front, however the camera will not be fully watertight because of the opening at the back for the USB cable.

    Core SWX DV-GP3-USBPS reviews

    GoPro Battery Eliminator with Wall Adapter is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Satisfactory One con is that the AC block won't power the camera with the HDMI port turned on. Had to get a higher amperage AC-USB power adaptor. Otherwise, it fit well in the skeleton case, and works just fine.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke my GoPro? I bought this thinking it would help with long term shooting with the GoPro but instead I'm pretty sure it fried my camera. The cord is constructed in such a way that you must bend it severely at the base to get it to stick out if the back of the camera. When I plugged in the camera using this adapter, it consistently turned off. It would not stay working. Likely this lead to other issues in my camera. Poor design.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Better design needed. If you are using a skeleton for your gopro this unit is problematic, works fine until you clamp the skeleton closed and you then loose power. Seems that then the unit is squeezed the unit moves and loses contacts with the internal power pins. I bought two and happened with both units.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unleash the Camera The Gopro is a decent tool to use for capturing certain types of video. With the battery eliminator, I can shoot using a 64GB card for an entire day and not worry about it shutting down randomly or overheating. I just ran it for 24 hours yesterday and it worked perfect for a time-lapse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great! For long time lapse or anywhere near a USB plug you can take longer video's or pictures without having to think about the battery usage.. A+++

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of Junk Will not power the Hero 3+ BE. Intermittently turns on.. won't stay on. Stay away from this. Bought two of them, neither works.
