JOBY Extends the Battery Life of Action Video Cams with Release of Lightweight, Compact & Universally Compatible Action Battery Grip
New Accessory Gives Action Video Cam Shooters a Powered and Flexible Solution
November 3, 2015 — Petaluma, Calif. — JOBY continues to expand its Action Series collection with the new Action Battery Grip. Designed to work with Contour®, Ion®, Garmin®, GoPro®, SJCAM®, Sony® Action Cam and other popular action cams, this powered solution provides up to three times the normal battery life of a device, and includes its own mount and built-in charger with 2600mAh capacity.
“The JOBY Action Series line was designed to bring light, convenient and versatile solutions to action enthusiasts. We’re building on that promise with the Action Battery Grip,” said Kate Farmer, JOBY brand director. “Our design alleviates the need to carry around extra batteries, weighs under six ounces, is compatible with all action video cams, built with premium materials, and is JOBY quality and safety tested to add extra peace of mind. The Action Battery Grip’s extended power capabilities helps to bring more action – allowing users to capture even more epic moments with their action cams.”
The Action Battery Grip (US MSRP $69.95) is a lightweight and compact solution for avid action video cam consumers. With this tool, they can use the grip alone or pair with an extra ¼"-20 accessory for grabbing great footage while biking, hiking, camping, attending a concert, or capturing any type of action. An included USB charging cable enables consumers to charge their action video cam or smartphone while in use, saving time and extending battery life. The adjustable wrist tether provides added security and may be detached when not needed.
All of the Action Series products come with a built-in, standard GoPro mount and thumbscrew, plus a top pin to use with other action cams with a ¼-20" attachment point. Removing the GoPro mount makes each of the Action Series products compatible with other action video cams. This tool is designed with durable ABS plastic, a silicone grip pad, nylon cording, stainless steel, thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), nickel-plated copper and polycarbonate for durability and seamless connections. The Action Battery Grip features a bottom mount to attach to a tripod for an eye-level, hands-free set-up, and pairs nicely with the JOBY UltraPlate 208 to create a powered mini-rig for steady and long-duration footage.
