Brunton All Day 2.0 Extended GoPro battery Review

Brunton all day GoPro extended battery pack is a must have for the avid GoPro user. Especially for users aiming at shooting longer time lapse videos. The all day gives you a massive 5+ hours of recording time. Brunton has made two versions of this handy little battery pack. The first was for use with the GoPro Hero3 and 3+ cameras. More recently they released the Brunton all day 2.0 for use with Hero4 Silver and Black GoPro cameras. The original all day was not fully waterproof just water resistant (IPX-5 Rated) Brunton all day 2.0 is a fully waterproof (to 40 meters) version of this extended battery pack. (well maybe)

Brunton All Day 2.0 with included accessories

My review of the waterproof Brunton all day 2.0 extended battery pack for GoPro Hero4 Silver & Black cameras. Is it a great pick for your GoPro gear bag if you are into shooting longer time lapses or need extended recording capability. The waterproofness is questionable at best I tested it just submerging in the sink prior to taking it in the pool and I was glad I did, it leaked. Not bad enough that it damaged the battery pack itself but not sure if I want to trust my GoPro cameras to it. So as to the 40 meters water proof not the unit I have. Maybe thats why they included multiple rubber seals for both the seal to GoPro housing itself and the output/on button compartment. I would still cal this a water resistant battery pack.

One of the other knocks I have on the all day 2.0 is how tight the rubber seal is on the GoPro housing. I broke the top clasp on one of my GoPro housings when first using it. To combat this I compress the seal by hand before attempting to close the housing clasp putting less pressure on it. Overall the Brunton All Day 2.0 is a great GoPro accessory to have mainly if you are after extended recording time like long time lapses. It does have a couple short comings but as long as you do not need it to be completely waterproof it’s fine.

Pros:

  • Perfect accessory for the GoPro time lapse user
  • The Brunton all day allows for extended recording at over 5+ hours.
  • Can be used as battery/5000 mAh power pack for charging other devices like phones or other GoPro batteries.
  • The black model allows you to completely black out your camera.

Cons:

  • Waterproof  seals are not very trust worthy, lets call it water resistant for now I would not recommend this for use with scuba diving or snorkeling.
  • Rear seal is very tight and can lead to breaking the clasp on your GoPro housing.
  • Adds quite a bit of weight and heft to the camera.

Get yours from Amazon
