Re: Karma grip disable gopro charging

I just recently purchased a Karma grip; I've been running into this same issue. It would be great if we could choose whether or not to have the Karma grip charge the GoPro camera. I have 3 spare batteries for my camera, and would love to be able toe extend the life of the grip by changing out the camera's battery when it is depleted.

I don't see a reason to not have both power options. It could be accessible by double-pressing the power button.

@graytree76514 could you verify with the team if this would even be possible to change with a firmware update?

Hi @mauriciow30620

 

We'll have this shared to the team in charge.

 

Thank you for your suggestion.

 

Thanks!

@aragon1006 were you able to confirm with the team if this is a possibility, given the existing hardware? I don't mind waiting for the feature. But if it is not possible to implement due to a hardware limitation, I might have to consider returning the product.

Re: Karma grip disable gopro charging

Hi,

 

It *really* is frustrating. Last Saturday I was with Karma Grip + Hero7 black and I should stop filming since the Karma Grip battery was empty. Hero7 was full, as were the two hero7 batteries in my pocket...

 

🤦🏻‍♂️

Re: Karma grip disable gopro charging

Try to remove battery from the camera. It game me at least 2 hours of filming.

But in any case , this is very bad solution from GoPro

@aragon1006: Is there a better way to stay updated with this feature request? It is very important to me.
