    i bought a SmarTree 3 Battery Channel Travel USB Charger, and it was alright, and it was cheaper. But when someone stole that Charger, i bought this without reading the reviews. Not only does this charger feel strong, and durable. i'm able to put it on a slick counter and it won't slip. This Charger swallows the whole battery, so its NOT sticking out, making it harder to tip over, or come out of its charging position. Yes, you are paying more, but your getting better quality. If PRICE is your determining factor, go with the cheaper one, it chargers just the same. Cheaper or not, they seem to all take a long time charging - SMH - Good Luck :o)

    Don't waste time or money buying the cheap knock off battery packs. They are crap and they don't last long in between charges. Stick with the real deal, go pro, go GoPro Hero 5 official batteries and accessories. I am not a paid reviewer. But, incidentally, GoPro, if you want to pay me, please contact me privately, I am not above getting free stuff. I did try some crappy knock off brand first and regret it. Yes, it was cheaper. yes, it worked. For a while. But the quality of the official battery is more than worth the extra price and reduced frustration of having your power go out in the middle of a cool shot. Also by the way those little kits with dozens of accessories for the Hero 5? Most of it is cheap, flimsy, and feels like a bad idea to risk your expensive camera on. Not all, but some of it. Some of it is pretty cool.

    GoPro Charging on!

    I purchased the GoPro dual battery charger to make sure that I have a backup battery for use in cold weather. The charger is neat well designed package that is powered with a USB-C cable into a laptop, computer or a wall charge inverter. Two batteries can be charged simultaneously, or one at a time.A power light shines amber when it is charging and Green when the battery(ies) are fully charged. This is a necessary device to carry with the GoPro 5 and up cameras as the batteries are different from previous GoPro camera batteries. You can tell when the battery is charged as there is a built in GREEN light when re-charging is complete.

    The best part is the extra battery

    While it's nice to be able to charge 2 batteries at once I was shocked to find that it took somewhere in the neighborhood of about 6 or 7 hours. It takes only about 90 minutes or so to charge when the camera (GoPro Hero 7 Black) is plugged in. I could see if it took 3 or 4 hours but nearly double that negates any possibly of having only 3 batteries in total. You'll need a 4th one. At least it includes an battery. Still, the ability to have at least partially charged batteries at the ready while using the camera is useful. I would still recommend it as most reviews of aftermarket batteries and/or chargers are usually negative.

    The hero GoPro 7 is a great camera with stabilizing the picture. I have taken it to many places and have recorded many things which include universal studios and islands of adventure. I have also taken it with me under water and it takes great video. With the extra battery and charger you’ll never have to worry about running out of battery life. I recommend buying the charger with the extra battery for your experience needs to capture memories.

    I bought the GoPro Hero 7 Black with extra batteries, because the battery life on the GoPro just isn't all that great. But theb, I realized I would have to charge 1 battery at a time in the camera, which meant I coukdn't uee the camers whike charging. So I started looking for a charger, & found this one. It comes with 1 battety, but has 2 slots to charge 2 batteries at once. For me, it's been perfect! I recently took a trip to NYC, and I could charge 2 batteries at the hotel while out with the camera & 2 other batteries. I didn't miss a single shot ever. I would highly recomend this charger to anyone with a GoPro.

    This charger is a must have. I record in 2.7k60fps and battery usually last about an hour or so. I picked up an extra battery and the charger so I have two batteries and now I am able to charge two batteries at once so I don't need to charge it via GoPro then wait for it to finish then charge the 2nd battery. Cuts charge time in half. Tried a 3rd party one and quality was alright but it didn't stop charging. Luckily, I knew it takes about an hour to charge but the 3rd kept charging after 75 minutes. I took it off and put it in the GoPro and it said 100%. I put it back on the 3rd party and it said its charging it. Looks normal but after 10 mins, it's still charging. I'm not risking and issues by saving $20 from a 3rd to a genuine GoPro charger.

    I recently bought this GoPro dual charger , since I had only 2 batteries and the only way I could charge them was in my GoPro Hero 5 camera.The advantage of this is that it comes with a battery and now I can be using 1 in my camera while the other 2 are charging. When I unboxed my dual charger with battery I started charging the battery and it took an hour or a little over an hour to fully charge it ,which I was bummed out. Other than that it's a great product and I only buy genuine GoPro products for my camera.

    Purchased this initially with my GoPro Hero5 Black over a year ago; the charger was recently damaged by saltwater corrosion, and the indicator lights didn't always work afterwards. So I purchased another as a replacement. Compact, does what it says, and you get another battery. Considering the GoPro remote is $80, and this $50, I'd say this is at a more reasonable price point, (though I understand some would say that's comparing apples to oranges.) Like I say in my review for the GoPro remote, this is something you should buy with the GoPro right away.

    You probably want an unlimited supply of mobile power for your GoPro. Well, the batteries, even with minimal options enabled on modern GoPros will simply inhale power very quickly. With WiFI linking and GPS features turned off at 4k-60fps I get about 1 hour of use to a fully charged battery. I have two of these chargers and four batteries which is only four hours total. You'll end up buying this or something like it eventually. Personally I stick with original GoPro accessories just in case future camera firmware updates prevent use of third party accessories...like in the past! ;-)

    Not sure... could be part of the battery issue

    So, maybe my charger is the reason my batteries don't hold a charge but they take forever to charge and drain ridiculously fast. All 3 batteries did it so I'm not sure. The camera is awesome though so, for shots in the elements... moisture, wind, salty air, sand, snorkeling, scuba diving, drone work... this camera really does its job! You can blow the shots or video up, and make yourself some sweet footage. It picks up audio so well, we could hear gray whales coming up for air, blowing, splashing flukes, surfacing, etc...from quite a distance out in the ocean. Unbelievable!

    This is great if you are looking for an additional battery. The charger works great and seems to charge the batteries fast than if you charged them in the camera. Overall, the charger looks nice and has a LED for each bay to show you when they batteries are fully charged or charging. The only downfall for some people is that the charger only comes with a USB cable and not a wall adapter as well. Other than that this works as it is suppose to and is a great package with the additional battery.

    Charges two GoPro Hero 5 batteries at a time, works as a battery charger should. LED lights are amber when charging and green when completed, it can't overcharge the battery. Also, when inserting the batteries, remember that the pull tab on top of each battery bends towards the LED charge indicator light when sliding the battery into the charging slot (the light will come on when the battery is seated properly). The charger doesn't come with an A/C Plug or D/C Car plug, but the standard USB connector will fit most after-market USB plugs/jacks or will work fine when plugged into any USB port on your desktop computer.

    Due to Go Pro Hero's latest FW update(s), you can no longer use 3rd party batteries in the Hero 5. That leaves the Go Pro batteries as the only power source that's usable. AND since you need more than 1 battery, it only makes sense to buy this battery/charger combo. This is really the only option if you want multiple batteries. So far, it has worked fine. Keep in mind that you must use the cable provided with the charger which is a USB-C type charger. If you already have this cable, you'll obviously have a 2nd USB-C cable now. Again - note that a Micro-USB will NOT fit this charger.

    For the 7 Black this is a must buy. Having owned a couple GoPro’s I feel like the 7 Black drains the battery the quickest (understandably so due to all the features) ... I was hesitant about buying this before a trip and saved the receipt just in case I ended up not using it. Needless to say I threw the receipt away as soon as I go home. This should be bought as soon as the camera is purchased.

    Great to have a charger that can plug into the wall, instead of needing to recharge the GoPro battery while IN the camera. Wish it came with the wall adaptor (why 4 stars instead of 5), but most people have enough adaptors laying around anyway. We were able to find one that met the specs required. The iPhone charger seems to do the trick. It's also nice that you can charge batteries independently- you don't need to have two in the charger for it to work. Decent price for it to include the charger AND and extra battery!

    A fantastic, necessary accessory for the Hero5 Black! For someone like myself who has 2 HERO5 BLACK's it's kind of a no brainer. Even for someone looking for a spare battery for $20 you just get a second one you have to charge inside the camera, or for $50 you get this with a battery and an external dual battery charger so you're not without a camera when charging. Since the product is as described when I ordered it, serves it's intended purpose well, and it makes my life easier I gave it a fair 5 stars. Thank's Again, GoPro! You guy's rock!

    The charger and battery that came with it work better than I could have ever hoped for. However the package only includes a usb cable for the charger and no necessary wall block to plug the charger in. I had assumed it would make sense to include a vital part of the "charging" aspect, but I guessed wrong. Still a great product, but wish that GoPro would give their customers a little more.

    The charger does exactly what its supposed to. it is designed very well and when the batteries are in the charger they are flush with the top and stay in quite well. this makes it a great charger for hooking up to a power bank in your backpack and charging batteries on the go. it also has light that's signify when your individual batteries are charging or fully charged. A great product by GoPro.

    If you have or had a gopro. You know you need the batteries, and a lot of them. Gopro batteries are small so they don’t last long. This charger should almost be purchased the same time you buy the camera. I don’t trust third party gear when it comes to power supplies and batteries. I wish they would make a 3 or 4 battery charger but this works perfect and as should. With the Best Buy price match it is well worth it !
