Get Epic GOPRO Battery Life Using a Canon LP-E6 Battery
The Tehkron CagePro Powers Your GoPro 3/3+ for 5 Hours Using a Canon LP-E6 Battery
January 7, 2014 -- With the ability for the GoPro Hero3/3+ to record up to 4 Hours of HD video on a single 64GB microSD card, the last thing you want to worry about is battery life. The GOPRO HERO3 / HERO3+ is capable of far longer run times than the internal battery can provide. Once you've enabled Wi-Fi, or attach the GOPRO LCD BacPac, you'll be lucky if you can squeeze out a full 40 minutes.
Sure, you can achieve an extra hour of run time by mounting the external GOPRO Battery BacPac2, but this means removing the LCD Touch Screen - our favorite accessory. So we came up with a better idea - the Tehkron CagePro.
How Does it Work?
The Tehkron CagePro uses a unique Patent Pending design that solves several problems for filmmakers who use the GOPRO HERO3 / HERO3+ in
professional production and broadcast environments. First and foremost,their cage offers additional mounting points - an important feature to
minimize vibrations when rigging the GOPRO to cars, motorcycles, planes,
boats, and more.
The CagePro also incorporates a 62mm threaded filter ring
to further improve the image quality from the GOPRO HERO3 / HERO3+
Cameras. By adding an ND Filter you can reduce shutter speeds on bright
days which can help to reduce Jello and Rolling Shutter effects. Or slap
on a CPL (circular polarizing) filter to reduce glare on reflective
surfaces and enhance color saturation in skies, oceans, and trees.
However, the most innovative feature pumps power to your Hero3 using the very popular LP-E6 battery (Canon DSLR Type)! A single Canon LP-E6 Battery can provide more than 5 hours of run time on a single charge. A perfect solution for long video takes, or a full day of Time Lapse projects.
The CagePro retails for $150 and the CagePro with Top Handle retails for $180.
