  • Inquires on charging case, batteries, and firmwares that suits Andoer Q3H-R

    Hello, I am living in Seoul, Korea and I am new to this forum, so forgive me if I am violating any rules in this forum.

    I recently purchased an action camera from Aliexpress.com and the link is below.

    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Ando...3a084c4dQNEUWh

    I have received the item yesterday and checked the main functions and they seems to work great, although I am having some problems with the accessories.

    1. Where would I be able to get a waterproof case that also enables charging when using?
    I am using the action camera on my motorcycle, and sometimes it requires additional power input to stay longer than 90 minutes.
    I looked up for the case in google, but the results I get are cases that fit for SJ4000 design (with power button on upper side), not SJ6000 design (power button on down side, which resemble my cam).

    2. The battery for my cam is 900mah, but upon researching I found that there are variations on batteries such as 1050mah, 1150mah that resemble the design of original 900mah battery.
    Will they be compatible with my camera? Will the battery capacity be genuine and work for longer hours?


    Thank you in advance.

    Oh, I forgot to mention that I am looking for waterproof case that has a charging port hole on the side, obviously.

      here - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Spor...744697076.html - and if you don't like this one for any reason, then just search "sj4000 usb waterproof shell" in Aliexpress. * I can't find a case that has a power/mode button at the bottom. I had the same problem about these case when I owned a Andoer Q3H much like yours. But I sold that thing months ago.

      i got an idea... get 2x of these cheap sj4000 cases - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Whol...870971742.html - and use one case as your base unit, and use the other case for parts in order to DIY make your own case for USB charging. If you don't need an actual waterproof'ed case, then this idea might work okay.

      Put a small hole in the base unit case at the bottom of the case where the camera power/mode button is. Take out a push button from the other case and put into the base case unit.

      Next, One the side of the base case unit where USB should go in, just melt or cut a hole big enough for a micro USB cable to go in. And there use hot-glue, foam, epoxy or rubber hose or something as a cushion and fixture for the USB cable.

      compatible = yes. longer hours (time) = probably yes depending on battery quality, your surrounding weather conditions (hot, cold, or humid) and your camera settings.

      I use various brands but same shape/size of 1050mah and 1250mah and 1350mah batteries and they work fine, and offer some more run time too. for example check this 1350mah battery that has rounded edges but it fits fine. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Univ...859518767.html - or this 1150mah one, it also fits fine - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2Pcs...891143711.html
