Although GoPro comes with a charging cable, you may need a backup replacement in case you lose the original one or if it fails to transfer files due to internal damage.

When looking for a new charging cable for your GoPro, there’s a possibility that you may come across some sub-standard cables in the market. Such cables might be inefficient or harmful to your GoPro’s battery life and overall performance. To avoid this, I’ve come up with this blog post.

In this article, you’ll find charging cables for all GoPro cameras.

What Kind of Charging Cable does a GoPro Use?


The type of charging cable you need for your GoPro depends upon which model you’re using. Throughout its models, GoPro has adopted 3 types of charging cables:

The initial models (from HD Hero original to Hero 4 Black) used Mini USB cables. Hero Session and Hero 4 Session are the only two models by GoPro to have used Micro USB. The company then switched to the latest USB-C cable for all the models that came out afterwards (from Hero 5 to Hero 11 – including Max & Fusion).

Here’s how these cables look like (along with the compatible GoPro models):

USB-C – Hero 12,11,10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, (2018), Max & Fusion

Micro USB – Hero Session & Hero 4 Session
