I went for a run today down the beach and found a go pro in the water.I have manage to find out who the owner is by some detective work.It is probably going to take awhile before I can get it back to the owner as he is on a cruise ship.My question is ,will the battery charge up ok ?The reason I ask this is shortly after I found the thing the battery went flat.If it stays flat for a long time it may not be able to be charged.So basically how long can it stay in this state before its battery is kaput?

Just charge it up and then remove the battery. The don't lose too much when they're out of the camera. It will be micro USB or USB C depending how new it is.

Ah you might be the only person on Geekzone with this problem!! Do you know which version of the GoPro it is? Raid your old drawers, someone here can probably donate one.

 

I've got a few GoPros and I'm not sure I've ever used the genuine cable. Did they drop it off a cruise ship?

The chap lost it in the surf by the look of the video.

 

its a newish one called gopro 8 black.The socket is half round at the ends,I just have nothing in the house like that.No one round here appears to sell ,except if you want a new battery and charger cable  deal.That's a bit more that I would like to outlay to help this guy out..

A GoPro 8 Black needs a USB-C cable

 

Like this one from PB Tech $6.84

 

Or one from virtually any recent smartphone that isn'r an Apple iPhone (they are 'special')
