A few weeks ago I published an article about my GoPro Karma Grip + Hero 4: Installation & Outdoor Test. In that article, I provided you with an alternative solution to charged it. It is worth remembering that by default, it can take up to six hours to fully charge the GoPro Karma Grip but GoPro has released the Super Charger which is meant to reduce the charging time down to two hours. However, I find its £44.99 price tag pretty stiff and instead I decided to invest in the Anker Power Pro 3.0 (£16.14) which according to its specs should have the same two hour charging time. That being said, at the time of the publishing the article, I had not tested it since I had received everything on the same day and the GoPro Karma Grip came fully charged. Yesterday I decided to drain the Karma Grip’s battery and today I recorded its charging time. Suffice to say that the 1h45 that it took to get the four continuous lights on made me very satisfied. So I absolutely recommend the Anker PowerPort Quick Charge 3.0 as a cheaper alternative to the expensive GoPro Super Charger. Some of you have told me it took 5h30 to charge your Karma Grip. I cannot tell you why that is or whether your Anker PowerPort Quick Charge 3.0 has a defect. Maybe have you left the GoPro Hero 4 or 5 in the harness and the charging time is increased because it charges both at the same time.
