When it’s all of 5 degrees and feeling like -5 degrees, freezing your ass off to get the shot is only half the battle. You also have to keep your camera charged and warm enough to keep working.
One pro tip from Ivan Lajara (the Life Editor of the Daily Freeman) and Daniel Rojas Roa (3Go Video) is to connect the camera to an external battery pack to keep your camera warmer and powered up.
“The cable won’t show up if you keep it going down your monopod/selfie stick,” Lajara said about using this trick with his Insta360 ONE, adding that you’ll probably need an extension cable.
Roa adds that if you use a left- or right- angle MicroUSB cable, the cable can run directly own the monopod so it won’t be in your shot and you won’t damage your USB port as you could using a straight MicroUSB.
for most consumer-level 360 cameras (Insta360 ONE, Mijia, Gear360, Rylo, Fusion, etc.), the cable won’t be in the shot and you won’t be damaging your USB port if there’s enough slack in the line.
Here’s one from StarTech that Roa suggests, which offers both right and left options and varying lengths from 6 inches to 10 feet.
