What SD card do I need to use for SOLOSHOT3?

Both OpticX Cameras utilize microSD cards for media storage. These are sold separately.


Sandisk or Lexar are preferable to us, however we can recommend the following cards:




Capacities (GB)


Extreme Pro

16, 32, 64


Extreme Plus

16, 32, 64, 128



16, 32, 64, 128



32, 64, 128



32, 64, 128



32, 64, 128


If you choose to go with another card, it should be rated U3 (UHS-I Class 3) or faster. Please note that compatibility/stability with other cards is not guaranteed.


*We do not recommend the Lexar 633 x 200 GB microSD card.


*Please beware of Amazon microSD cards disguised as SOLOSHOT microSD Cards. We DO NOT sell microSD cards on Amazon and these are not sanctioned by the company.

How long does it take to fully charge SOLOSHOT3?

SOLOSHOT3 takes about 3-4 hours to fully charge. We recommend using a Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 Wall Adapter for best results. 


When fully charged, the SOLOSHOT3 system lasts between 2-3 hours with typical use cases. Please note that livestreaming and 4K resolution will use more battery power.

Can I connect SOLOSHOT3 to an external power source to make it last longer?

Yes, you can. With SOLOSHOT3, you can plug the Base into a USB power source to not only keep the unit from dying, but also charge the unit up a bit during use.


Please be sure to use caution with the cable if you are doing 360 degree turns because it will wrap around the Base. Be sure to leave some slack on the line so as not to damage the charging port. Damage done to this port due to external charges are not covered under warranty. 


Use a wall adapter/power source with at least 5 volts and 2 amps. We recommend Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 enabled wall adapters for best results. You can plug the Base into a wall power source, or a portable power source - such as a USB power pack from GoalZero. Using a laptop to charge may not result in charging the Base as many laptop USB ports don’t provide sufficient USB power output.

How can I prolong the battery life of my SOLOSHOT3?

SOLOSHOT3 runs on non-removable, rechargeable li-ion batteries. To get the most amount of charge/discharge cycles from these batteries, please follow the tips below:


  • Keep batteries at room temperature (about 75 degrees Fahrenheit) and avoid extreme heat.
  • For the first 30 charge cycles, partial discharge cycles are recommended.
  • After 30 cycles, it's recommended to let the battery discharge completely so as not to alter the accuracy of the battery gauge. 


For extended storage, it is recommended to discharge the li-ion battery to 40% and store in a cool place.
