It doesn’t happen all that often that you’re able to say a particular Kickstarter campaign is almost 100% going to be successful, before it hits the goal. It appears that this little innovation will do just that. At the moment of writing this MOTA wireless charger for GoPro has got over $10 000 out of $15 000 goal, and plenty of time to go.
The name is self-explanatory – the MOTA charger has been designed and optimized for GoPro 3 and 4 and the set allows you to charge these cameras wirelessly without the need to swap the batteries – the camera can remain in its housing. Without further ado – the video posted in the product’s Kickstarter campaign page explains it all:
More info from the campaign page:
The patent-pending wireless receiver is the technology that makes the MOTA Wireless Charger compatible with Hero 3 and Hero 4 batteries. The receiver is engineered to enable wireless charging for your existing batteries. Before placing your camera in its casing, replace the GoPro’s USB port cover with the MOTA wireless receiver and align the bottom flap along the device’s base. After doing so, enclose your GoPro in its casing and simply insert it into the MOTA charging station.
If (of when, should we say) the campaign is successful, the product should be available at the turn of first and second quarter of 2015. Find out more about the product, and support if you wish, at the official Kickstarter campaign page here.
