    GET-A-CHARGE OUT OF THIS

    Bought this from Best Buy over Memorial Day weekend. Advertised with an MRP of ~$70.00. Memorial Day sale, $39.95 (SWEET). Using the charger is a "NO BRAINER". As long as you have a USB charging port, your in business. Ever been somewhere, and you have waited all day for that one special shot, just to find that by the time you have the opportunity for that shot, yep "YOUR BATTERY IS DEAD". You will never have that problem again. The charger comes with one battery, but I would recommend the purchase of an additional battery. This affords you the opportunity to charge two batteries while you are using the one in your GoPro. If you are like most people, you can never have too many batteries. Unless you are a GoPro GURU and know how to manage your batterie consumption , at some point in time, you are going to wish you had an extra battery. Great way to beat Murpy's Law for Picture Taking, pick one up.

    Easy Charging

    I love using the WiFi feature on my GoPro Hero 4 but it sucks the battery life so fast! Knowing that I have a backup battery on deck lets me use the WiFi feature care-free and with this charger I can easily charge my gear up for the next run. I know there are some battery packs with third-party chargers and batteries but with the risk of incompatibility and some of them not fitting in the battery dock properly and some even overheating and exploding I didn't feel like risking my $400 investment on a cheap knockoff battery and charger. What's another $30 on a genuine GoPro battery and charger if it means my gear doesn't get destroyed. If you don't want to spend money, you probably wouldn't have gotten a genuine GoPro in the first place right?

    Does what it's supposed to do!

    A must if you have multiple batteries! Sure, you can charge your batteries inside your camera but I would rather use a dedicated battery charger instead of having the GoPros components subjected to current just to charge the battery. Just seems like extra wear on the GoPro internals that doesnt need to happen. The ONLY real complaint I have is sometimes a battery will reach full charge but the status light won't change from yellow to green automatically but if you pull the battery out and put it back in the light will turn green if the battery is fully charged. Just a little quirk. It happens with all 5 of my batteries for my GoPro Hero 4.

    Great multi-charger but sensitive to cold

    Because the batteries are easier to remove in the new Hero 4's, I decided an external charger would be beneficial. I especially like that it comes with the extra battery and can be charged via micro-usb, thus I can charge with my solar panel. Charging works well with a yellow light for charging and green for complete. Each bay can be charged independently. My only concern is sensitivity to cold weather because the battery acts like it is still charging (yellow), but likely has completed already. To re-trip the test, I had to remove the battery and place it back in which then immediately went to a green light. Otherwise, a well built and nice unit.

    I'm in the construction and remodeling industry and always need to take high-quality photos and videos, whether it's pre-job, in-progress, or final walk through having a spare GoPro battery ready to pop in and record is a must. I didn't know about this accessory until I went into the local Best Buy looking for an additional accessory cable. When I saw it I thought this is exactly what I'm looking for. It stays in the console of the truck and is always ready to charge my drained battery and keep the footage up to date.

    Holds Charge Well, Overall Good Buy

    Id say this is a great purchase if you're looking to stick with the go pro brand. The product works well and does it's job. The only negatives are that it takes a little bit to charge the batteries so I woukd definitely say buy 2 of these. That way you're never out of juice on a shoot. Also Wasabi power makes a 2 and 3 battery charger with batteries for right around the same price point online. And to me the Wasabi charges faster. I have a hero 4 black 4k and I shoot between 1080 and 2.5k. I have one go pro double charger and a wasabi 3 battery charger.

    Dual Battery Charger, over priced, missing AC adpt

    I believe the product is over prices, and needs an AC adaptor for charging. That I suggested to the GoPro product support team, as they recommended I purchase their $39.99 A/C adaptor. Really!? After I said pricy. And was their, no reply from GoPro. So for $99.98 I could complete the kit, yah pricy And apparently the product will no longer be manufactured, GoPro said. I can only guess why. The rating was FAIR, rather than POOR, as the batteries did charge, however; The product was returned, to Best Buy, after no further reply from GoPro

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Very useful external charger + additional battery

    Battery life is not one of the strongest aspects of GoPro 4. Although you can charge the battery by connecting the camera to your laptop etc, this means you cannot use it during this duration. This external charger gives one the ability to charge one battery while using the camera with the other, and this pack includes the additional battery. One drawback is about the status indicator lights. Sometimes the orange light meaning "it is still charging" does not turn to green even though the battery is full.

    Must have if you have multiple batteries

    A full days adventure with a GoPro requires multiple batteries. And unless you want to spend hours babysitting your GoPro while it is plugged in to swap them as they charge, you need an external charger. The fact that this one charges two batteries at once is a big plus. It allows you to throw some batteries in to charge and still play with your GoPro if you want. The price seemed a bit steep, but was a little easier to take when I found it it also came with an extra battery.

    A MUST for GoPro Owners

    If you do any amount of recording with your GoPro, I would highly recommend getting this dual charger. Batteries can go quick, especially if you're experimenting and learning the GoPro camera. With this, you can charge 3 batteries at once. Two in this charger, and then one charging in your GoPro via a computer hookup. On a weekend trip, I always had batteries charging in the hotel room, while I was filming with my GoPro around the city. Worth the investment!

    A necessary accessory if you film all day

    The great part about this accessory is that you get a battery along with the charger. I found that a full charge on one battery will not last me a whole day at Disneyland recording at 1080 (granted that I do have the camera on most of the day to be able to catch candid moments). It definitely helps to have two batteries when I go. The only thing I wished was better was the charge time; it does take a a few hours to get both batteries charged to full.

    If you're going to spend on a Hero 4 then you do not want to handicap your investment by having only one battery at the ready. Getting a second battery is a must! Especially with the built in touch screen, battery life is only moderately predictable. This dual charger comes with an extra battery! Two birds, one purchase. Get two and keep one on the car. They are USB and charges perfect on my iPhone car charger!!!

    Must have charger if you have a GoPro camera!!

    The best part of this charger is that the lights on it show the battery level for each battery individually so you know if one has more charge on it than the other one. It's portable so you can take it with you ANYWHERE and it will give you the ability to charge 2 batteries at one time. If you have a GoPro camera, with the amount of battery they can consume in an outing, this charger is definitely something you need to have with you!!

    This is extremely convenient to have when on a trip/vacation or just in general. Since the gopro batteries run out of juice like every 45 minutes, it is good to have a spare battery or just have the option of charging two batteries at one time! Gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because it takes a little longer to get a full charge from a completely dead battery like an hour and a half - 2 hours or so, just to get 45 minutes of run time.

    A Necessary Accessory

    This is a necessary accessory all because someone decided that the HERO 4 Silver needed a Touch screen built in. Which meant the battery could no longer go into the back of the camera. This should not have been a big deal but they decided to make the BLACK EDITION take the same new SMALLER battery as the Silver. For Seasoned GoPro fanatics like my self who have over 20 batteries for the 3 and 3+ cameras this is a very big deal.

    This product is great, i took my Go Pro on a month long trip where i was filming in a variety of settings for really long periods of time and this was a life saver! Being able to have multiple backup batteries available and then recharge them while on the go by having this hooked up to my laptop, portable battery charger, or car charger to keep batteries constantly charging was absolutely great.

    I love my GoPro so much and when I use it... I tend to go through the battery life rather quickly. I bought an extra battery, but since I was only able to charge one at a time, I mostly just forgot to keep my spare charged. Buying this product made it easer... AND ON TOP OF THAT, it also came with an extra battery that I did not know about. So, now I have 3 batteries and won't ever have to really worry about running out of battery life.

    I needed a battery charger for my Gopro 4 Silver and while searching the Best Buy ads, found the dual battery charger WITH a battery included on SALE. A good deal, considering I really needed an extra battery to begin with, and much less than buying each item separately. Luckily, it was available at my store and didn't have to wait a few days for delivery. Works good for charging 1 battery or 2 together.

    Extra Battery Really Helps

    I do long time lapse captures that tend to drain the battery. When I go to download, my computer's (Surface Pro 3) power management will not power the camera until the battery is recharged, delaying my workflow. Having a fully charged battery to pop in the camera means I can download right away. While I'm downloading, the depleted battery is recharging on a separate circuit. Multitasking is a good thing.

    Absolutely fascinated with this dual GoPro Battery Charger. The convenience of charging both of my batteries at once saves so much time. I have both of my batteries ready to go at the same time. Its awesome for when i do my spartan races, Im able to carry my backup battery fully charged ready to be changed out when needed.
