More than just a selfie stick

The PowerGrip H2O is a waterproof GoPro extension pole and more. Inside its handle is a powerful rechargeable battery that can be used to keep your GoPro powered up, even underwater. Polar Pro has also designed several accessories to use with it to make it more useful than just a selfie stick with a battery.
