Which USB power banks/mains adapters are best to power my SyncBac PRO and HERO7 Black camera?

The SyncBac PRO can be used to pass external power through to the GoPro HERO7 Black camera. It is crucial that a high quality solution is used, to prevent power surges and camera crashes, which may result in lost footage.

If you are considering using the power through option running on the mains supply, please refer to GoPro's recommended chargers.

If you prefer to use a power bank, please ensure that your unit is of high quality and use short, high quality cables. Lower quality power banks and cable are useful for re-charging purposes only, when the camera is not recording. When a HERO7 Black camera records it creates a power surge, which causes the camera to freeze, if the attached power bank is not of a high quality.

To try and avoid camera crashes and the potential for lost footage for our users, we have tested a variety of portable USB power banks. Unfortunately, we are unable to endorse a particular brand, but please refer to the results below for guidance.
