I haven't got a GoPro, but a quick Google found this :
GoPro AHDBT-401 Dual USB Battery Charger so it would appear the answer is YES !  :028:

Whether it fits in the glove box or not is another matter !

If you have a Top Box you can get a USB adapter to go into the ( Cigar Lighter type ) Power socket  :169:

It should be.... Or run a USB cable direct to the camera and keep it powered at all times! That is what I do with my Garmin Virb
Triumph Trophy! Not for every Tomaz, Dieter or Herman!🇬🇧

I bought some flat USB cables that sneak out from under the lid of the glove box and allow it to close easily.  Plugged into a USB adapter in the glove box socket.  I did have to cut the waterproof enclosure on my camera but behind the screen I have never had any problem with water getting in.  I use a ball mounted in the 'spare' mirror mount in the clutch lever mount.

Would you be so kind as to share the exact ball mount adapter that you used for this?  Thx!

I don't know what John used, but the mirror threads are both M10 x 1.25 and are both right hand threads.
( Some bikes like Yamaha have a left hand thread for the right hand mirror ! )

If it's a 1" / 25mm RAM ball type mount you're looking for -
These should do the job : RAM Mount UK - Part No. RAM-B-349

Cheers  :821:
