If you are using the GoPro camera for extended periods, it is better to power the camera with a Battery Eliminator instead of connecting it to the camera’s mini-USB charger.

The coupler style Battery Eliminator snaps into the battery slot of all GoPro HERO3 and HERO3+ models and latches like the GoPro lid for a secure fit. Using a Battery Eliminator eliminates two sources of heat. The charging circuit in the camera and the battery itself, which gets warm while charging. Less heat makes the camera more reliable. Overheating can cause unexpected shutdown of the camera. A Battery Eliminator also bypasses the problems that some users have had with the GoPro charging logic causing the camera to freeze and require a reset.


The Battery Eliminator includes a voltage regulator and power line filter for maximum noise immunity and automatic accommodation to a wide range of input voltages. The Battery Eliminator’s USB input is designed for use with any DC power supply capable of supplying at least 1A of current at 5V to 24V DC.

  • Increases Reliability

    • The Battery Eliminator prevents two sources of heat: the charging circuit in the camera and the battery itself, which gets warm while charging. Overheating can cause unreliable behavior or unexpected shutdown of the camera. Using our Battery Eliminator also prevents the camera from crashing if a problem occurs while the internal battery is charging.

    Frees up your camera’s USB and HERO Ports

    • No more charging through the camera’s mini-USB port.  Now your USB port is ready for camera data retrieval and your HERO Port can be used with our controller boards.

    Simple to use, just add power.

    • Replace your camera’s battery with the Battery Eliminator and plug into a USB port. We recommend using a USB port capable of supplying at least 1A of current at 5V to 24V DC.

    Efficient Voltage Regulation

    • The voltage regulator efficiency is better than 90%, ensuring the lowest power drain on the source and eliminating excess heat generated in the battery coupler.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Why Use Our Battery Eliminator?

    Our Battery Eliminator increases your camera’s reliability. It prevents two sources of heat: the charging circuit in the camera and the battery itself, which gets warm while charging. Overheating can cause unreliable behavior or unexpected shutdown of the camera. Using our Battery Eliminator also prevents the camera from crashing if a problem occurs while the internal battery is charging.

    WHow long is the Battery Eliminator cable?

    The USB cable is 4'10" (1.5m) long.

    Will the Battery Eliminator work with other CamDo accessories?

    The Battery Eliminator replaces the GoPro camera’s internal battery, so it leaves the HERO Port open for accessories such as our Programmable Scheduler, Time Lapse Intervalometer, Bullet, or Motion Detectors. Blink cannot be used with our Battery Eliminators since Blink does not have a slot for the cable to pass through. However, Blink has a USB port that can be used to power the camera from a 5V source while avoiding the GoPro battery circuit.
