INTRODUCING THE TRIPPLER!
Now available with our bundled pledge! The Trippler is an extremely compact grip, extension pole and tripod all in one. The Trippler features collapsible tripod legs, a standard tripod mount and 10-26 inch extension.
Building off the success and feedback of our original PowerPole, we recently set out to design a single product that would not only power our devices while out in the field, but also bring along the convenience of being fully waterproof; making this a truly universal and essential accessory.
The PowerGrip H2O is the world's first waterproof, battery-integrated pole system. Housing 6700mAh of power; users can now increase film time to 12 hours, or fully charge the GoPro camera 6 times with ease.
The 6700mAh Battery
Running out of power while filming outdoors has been an issue since..well, forever; so we made sure the PowerGrip packed as much power as possible while still providing a beautiful ergonomic design.
Featuring Dual-USB ports, the PowerGrip has no problem simultaneously charging two devices. To charge the PowerGrip itself, simply use the micro-usb port located below the two USB ports.
Waterproofing was our number one priority with the PowerGrip H2O. We wanted this to be the one accessory you could take everywhere; from surfing in the morning to an evening hike and everything in between.
With the PowerGrip's waterproof door installed, it has a depth rating of 99 feet, leaving you worry free for most (if not all) water sports.
The PowerGrip H2O features a multi-functional, folding arm design. Included are two 11-inch extension arms which seamlessly collapse onto the grip for incredible portability. Fully extended, the arms can provide up to 33-inches of extension away from the user, allowing for great wide-angle shots.
The PowerGrip H2O weighs in at a mere 9 ounces, making it effortless to hold for long periods of time. Each extension arm weighs in at 2 ounces each, giving the PowerGrip a maximum weight of 13 ounces (without your camera of choice attached)
For those who love shooting time-lapses with a GoPro or mobile device, we made sure to include a 1/4-20 tripod thread at the base of the grip, allowing users to turn any tripod into a power source.
Nothing was overlooked when it came to the design and functionality of the PowerGrip H2O. The two included extension arms are fitted with cable slots to securely run the charge cable to the GoPro while filming.
With a huge rise in the number of people using their smartphone as a secondary (or even primary) film source, we made sure the PowerGrip was cell phone compatible. Included with the grip is a smartphone mount, bringing the PowerGrip H2O beyond just a GoPro accessory.
Making our products compatible and interchangeable with one another is always one of our most important aspects when designing something new. With the PowerGrip H2O, this was no exception. We added our universal mounting plate, allowing you to attach the PowerGrip to any backpack, scuba bcd, life vest, etc. with our StrapMount.
Underwater Live Charge Kit
Designing an accessory that could be used to charge the GoPro in any environment was a must for us. After countless attempts, we finalized a design which would allow users to charge their GoPro camera at depths of up to 99 feet. This underwater charge kit is compatible with the GoPro Hero4, Hero3+ and Hero3 cameras with the Standard (40m) Housing.
LED Light Kit
Shooting in low light with a GoPro or smartphone is still a extremely difficult, so we set out to design a waterproof LED light that's powered by the grip itself. The light consists of 6 ultra-bright LEDs that put out 500 lumens.
The team here at PolarPro doesn't just design products for capturing epic moments, we live it. Our company culture is young and innovative with employees ranging from professional snowboarders, skiers, talented surfers and avid divers. We look forward to enhancing your videos and we hope to see you surfing North-side of the Huntington Beach pier, lapping the park in Mammoth, or on one of our tropical diving “research” trips.
Risks and challenges
We began the extensive development process about a year ago, working through a series of design concepts and material selections. The tooling for this high end product was an extremely large investment for us, and wiped out our operating capital. Since this is a very technical product, it is very expensive to produce. We have the tooling made, along with an awesome and perfectly working prototype. Now, we just need your help in getting this first order placed! With your help and support, we can make this project a reality, and bring this incredible GoPro accessory to market.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
