    Is it possible to charge SJ8 (Air/Plus/Pro) and record with an external microphone at the same time, using USB Type-C splitter?
    If aftermarket splitters don't work, has anyone tried to use a custom built one?

    Charging should work with such prefabricated splitter. But as SJCAM uses their own choice of pins for mic in, the mic probably does not work with it. Of course, it's possible to build a custom splitter, that matches SJCAM pinout.
