London, UK  19 October 2015 – PNY Technologies has today announced the launch of the PNY Action Charger, a universal rechargeable mobile battery bank designed to provide power for adventurous photographers on the move. 

The use of Action Cams to capture extreme outdoor activities means access to power sources for the recharging of batteries can be a challenge. The battery life of the Go Pro Hero 4, for example, is 1 - 2 hours, which is not nearly enough for users to capture all the intense moments and extreme sensations that they are experiencing. 

The PNY Action Charger solves the problem by being able to power the Go Pro Hero 4, as well as any USB-powered mobile devices, including tablets, smartphones, mp3 players, eReaders, portable game consoles and more. With its 2 Go Pro Hero 4 battery bays, you will also be able to charge two batteries at once. You can even charge two Hero 4 batteries and a tablet or smartphone at the same time.   

Along with power on the move, active photographers and videographers also require flexible storage options – PNY’s MicroSDHC/XC Elite Performance flash memory card provides ideal storage for Action Cams. With up to 100MB/s transfer rates, fast transfer speeds are guaranteed so you can quickly store, transfer and share your content while you’re on the go.

Award-winning adventure sports filmmaker Sebastien Montaz-Rosset utilizes PNY power and storage products like the Action Cam charger and the MicroSDHC/XC Elite Performance to enable his work. His films can be viewed here

Sebastien is a member of the PNY Photo Ambassador Program, a select number of photographers from diverse focus areas, ranging from sports and adventure photography to nature and photojournalism, that PNY selects and supports each year.
