GoPro Supercharger – Review


With two USB Ports, the 27.5W GoPro Supercharger allows you to charge two GoPro devices simultaneously. The USB-C port offers 20 to 70% faster charging on fast-charge compatible devices, which include all the latest GoPro cameras that came after the GoPro Hero 5. The fast-charging USB-C port charges at 5.1V 3A, 5.5V 3A, and 12V 1.67A. The second port (USB-A) is for normal charging speed. It charges the GoPro camera at 51.V 1.5A.

This charger also lets you power your GoPro continuously in situations like when you’re capturing a time lapse for long durations. Another great feature of this Supercharger is that you can use it anywhere in the world! It includes interchangeable AC plugs for US, UK, EU and AU style wall sockets.

From personal experience, I can tell you that this charger really does charge your GoPro quickly. It used to take me around 2 hours to charge my GoPro with the standard USB wall adapter by GoPro. The Supercharger, on the other hand, just takes about 90 minutes to charge my GoPro.

Alternatives to GoPro Supercharger


In this section, I’ll let you know about a couple of alternatives to the GoPro Supercharger that you can use:

The 65W AUKEY Omnia Fast Charger ensures that you get incredibly fast charging speeds for your compatible GoPro cameras (Hero 5 and newer). Just like the Supercharger, this charger also features two USB ports. Therefore, you can charge two GoPro devices simultaneously. The USB-C port gives full 65W power when used alone. If you use both the ports, then the USB-C port delivers 45W power.

Apart from being able to charge your camera fast, this charger is also very safe and reliable with a suite of safeguards to protect your devices while charging. Its remarkably slim & lightweight design ensures that the charger is always travel-ready.

Thanks to Quick Charge 3.0 and PowerIQ technology, the 18W Anker Quick Charge 3.0 guarantees the fastest possible charge to the compatible devices (for GoPro – Hero 5 and newer). This Premium USB Wall Charger features a single USB port for fast charging your GoPro.

In addition to charging your camera fast, this charger is super safe with surge protection, temperature control and many more advanced safety features. Also, a foldable plug, compact size and international voltage compatibility (AC 100-240V) make it your ideal travel companion.

Conclusion: Is the GoPro Supercharger Worth it?


While all the alternatives that I’ve mentioned presently work well with GoPro cameras, there’s a catch! GoPro doesn’t officially recommend using third-party chargers. So, a firmware update from GoPro can make all these third-party chargers useless. Also, if any damage happens to your GoPro using these chargers, your camera’s warranty can be void. Therefore, even though the alternatives are cheaper, buy them at your own risk!

So, if you own a fast charging compatible GoPro model (Hero 5 & newer), buying the GoPro official Supercharger is the best and safest option for you. However, if you own an older model of GoPro, then the standard wall charger which comes with the camera is sufficient for you, because you won’t be able to take advantage of the fast charging with those models.
