2.0 out of 5 stars doesn't work well for me 25 Aug 2011
By Tom - Published on Amazon.com

The USB charger allows using the camera while it is powered through USB (other USB chargers don't seem to allow that). It is useful, for example, for recording a drive, in combination with the windshield mount.

While that sounds nice in theory, in practice it doesn't work so well. First, while this may charge the camera when it is off (I didn't try), it doesn't charge it while it is recording; in fact, the battery seems to be draining slowly if you're recording even if it is plugged into the charger. In order to use the USB charger, you need to leave the back of the camera open; that makes it difficult to push the on/off button (you need a pen or paperclip), and it also makes it difficult to remove the camera from the car mount.

In the end, it kind of works: you can record for about 8h at a time. But it's a fiddly and complicated experience.

This car charger lets you recharge the cameras' battery in between the action without having to have take a computer/lap top where ever you go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for my two year old contour. 6 Mar 2013
By Kamal O Rowe - Published on Amazon.com

When recording in 720-1080p and using the Contour as a dash camera the battery life leaves a little to be desired. I picked this bad boy and a few extra SD cards and it gets the job done. Wire is a little long so I just used some cable ties.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as expected 18 April 2011
By Christopher Edgington - Published on Amazon.com

After initially being sent the wrong item I ordered again and received the correct cable.

Nothing really remarkable as it works as expected with no surprises, good or bad. The cable is nice and long and allows you to power (or charge) the Contour camera while recording, which is something a regular USB cable won't do. I used the cable along with my Contour GPS camera to record an off road trip in the west Texas desert and it worked like a charm. I haven't had good luck with the batteries for my Contour GPS so I recorded the trip with the battery removed to prevent any issues with overcharging shortening the life of the battery.

If you are in the car and need to record for awhile I highly recommend this along with the Contour 2800 Windshield Mount by Panavise.
