We now have a new auto download software, email us here for details.

The PowerPad Multi Camera Charge and Sync Station can charge multiple cameras and is also capable of connecting all cameras to a computer through a single USB port for downloading files at high speed and clearing the SD card, especially when coupled with our new auto download software. It can also be used to installing scripts for immediate shooting on the Hero3 series of cameras. The PowerPad15S can charge and download files of up to 15 cameras. The PowerPad8S handles up to 8 cameras. 

When the PowerPad is connected to a computer, each camera can be switched from connected (for charging and viewing files) to “disconnected” (for only charging) under the control of the host computer. This allows the use of multiple cameras without the need to plug and unplug cables or remove the SD cards from the cameras. Standard USB cables can be used to connect the cameras to the PowerPad unit.

In charging mode, each port can supply 2.1 amps of power at 5.2 volts DC, sufficient for rapid battery charging or for operating tablets as well as GoPro cameras. The PowerPad is capable of recognizing any USB chargeable device and automatically configuring itself to emulate the appropriate charger for maximum charging efficiency on each USB port.

In computer connected sync mode, the PowerPad provides power and a computer connection for multiple GoPro cameras simultaneously. The host computer sees the camera’s SD cards and mounts them as individual disks. Files can be downloaded from the SD cards at 480 MB per second (USB 2.0 speed). The cards can be erased and control scripts can be uploaded from the host computer, as required (Hero3 cameras).
