My entry is something I built when I got tired of swapping batteries on my GoPro while out four wheeling. Went from swapping batteries every 45-60 minutes, to every few hours.
I'll post all links at the bottom of my entry. I've edited the STL and SKP files to exclude my YouTube name.
Disclaimer: I'm not a designer, just got annoyed! Quality isn't that great, however it functions well.
Mophie Battery Helmet Mount
Designed around Mophie Powerstation.
These mount to the back of my helmet with velcro, and I use this case to get power to the camera while still protecting it from water/dirt/mud.
The battery pack is a VERY snug fit, and nearly impossible to remove once inserted.This was by design.
On the thinner model, you can see the charge indicator lights through the plastic fairly well. The charge indicator button is just recessed enough that pressure where the button is activates it.

Photos of original prints. First functional version is on the left in each photo. They're dirty cause well... mud!
The right one is slightly slimmed down. Printed in white PETG and "painted" with a paint marker.
On the helmet!
Wire goes through the helmet itself so it's not flopping around while riding.
Camera is mounted to the front of the helmet with this mount and a toggle bolt. Camera isn't in the case since it was busy recording the time-lapse video below.
Early photo from my old helmet when I was still testing.
Very thin section for charge indicator lights to be more easily visible. (Leaving the button blocked off for moisture concerns.)
Note: If you choose to print this, keep in mind every helmet is different, and it may not contour well to yours.Because of the velco, a perfect fit isn't necessary as long as it holds well. I've also included the Sketchup file to edit yourself.
Printing pics! The text looks terrible.
Note: This was from today, the original mounts were printed early this year. I also just installed a new hot-end so quality may not be the greatest.
You can also see a bunch of my four wheeling videos on this channel. Nothing recently, as I've had no time to edit. I also just installed a new hot-end so quality may not be the greatest.
