Thank you for the feedback, I understand the issue has been raised. I would also like to join the people are (very) displeased with this "feature" that can't be turned off. I've tried to work around, but without luck. Even when the Karma Grip is turned off, the grip trickle-charges the GoPro camera. I often have an empty grip, but full GoPro, just like stated by the others here.
Since this issue is very old already, I don't think a solution is even possible, but it never hurts to keep pushing...
I've even found negative reviews on different sites stating not to buy the grip, because of this issue...
