  • Garmin Charge connectors - What's the difference?

    I've found that Charger connectos: https://www.screencast.com/t/tR72z6flx

    Powered Tripod Mount 010-12521-01 - 49.99 usd
    Powered Vehicle Mount 010-12521-04 - 79.99 usd
    Powered Marine Mount 010-12521-03 - 79.99 usd

    Could you advise:

    - Does it go with USB plug (all 3 models)?
    - How to provide waterproof for Powered Marine Mount?
    - What's the difference in price? (cable length and waterproof)?

    It's not clear for Garmin page - 1 image for 1 connector only :-(

    This has been answered before: https://forums.garmin.com/forum/on-t...powered-mounts

    Specifically addressing your questions:
    • Only the tripod mount has a 5V USB plug. The Marine and Auto mounts are bare-wire for 10-30V supplies.
    • I'm not sure I understand the question. The inline connector and connection to the VIRB are both water-resistant on all 3 models. The only real consideration is to make sure that your connection to the power supply at the other end of the cable is protected from the elements.
    • All are water-resistant. The part that clips onto the camera is exactly the same for all three. The cable length is 10m on the Marine mount, 2m on the others.
    Hope that helps!

      Thanks for comment. Have you seen full photo of Powered Tripod Mount 010-12521-01 ?
      This foto - https://www.dcrainmaker.com/images/2...ctor_thumb.jpg from Marine or Whicle Mount. Am I right?
      According to prev. posts - Powered Tripod Mount goes with USB connector only.

        In that photo, the left cable is Vehicle (2m, 10-30V). The right cable is what comes with the powered tripod kit (5V USB). The lower-middle is the powered mount, which can be used with either of the pictured cables.

          Thanks for the answer. I want to have Powered Tripod Mount 010-12521-01. Does it meant that USB plug will not be included in this model? I want to connect Power Bank with cable.

              From what I understand:
              - the mount in the middle with the female connector is part of all 3 models
              - the right cable with male connector and usb is part of the Powered Tripod Mount (you get also a tripod mount with this model)
              - the left cable with male connector is part of the 2 other models (a 2m cable for the vehicle mount vs. a 10m cable for the marine mount)

                coconut54 is correct. All three kits include 2 electrical components: The mount (same for all, female connector is universal) and a cable (different for each).

                The tripod mount also comes with a tripod screw (1/4" 20tpi) adapter that is not part of the vehicle/marine kits.

                So the powered tripod mount includes everything you need to connect your VIRB to a USB power bank and mount it on a standard tripod.
