GoPro Waterproof case that allows charging?

The company I work for photographs Ironman and endurance events globally. Part of our offerings is a short video clip of the athletes are various points on the course. This video is captured by one of 6 to 10 stationary GoPros that need to be capturing video from 3 to 10 hours. Quite often we are working in inclement weather and we've occasionally lost a camera.

We have several video kits that roam. We have Hero Sessions, Hero5 Sessions, Hero7 White cameras.

I've seen a couple here and there that are OK...

I've got a couple of their GoPro 8 models and they are really nice. I'm not positive the power connection is truly waterproof (submersion) but I think it's definitely rain proof which is all I need.

I also have a couple for the 3BR Hero 3, 3+, 4 and it's really close to ideal.

The 3BR model for the Hero7 doesn't work with the White and Session is only for the 5 Session, not the older one.

A store-bought solution would be ideal.

A simple jury-rigged solution would be acceptable. Simple meaning easy to do with little to no tools and even less time.

What have you seen?
