- QuestionHi Are the problems that karma grip not "talking" with Hero 5 fixed? (5 Answers)Answers
I've had my Karma Grip/Hero 5 setup for a couple months now and have used it strenuously in all types of environments. I have not yet encountered an issue with the Grip not "talking" with the GoPro however I did find a review from an online blogger who had a similar issue: "Sometimes the GoPro battery continues to drain after being turned off from the Karma Grip, which you won’t realise until the next time you try to power on the system and find the GoPro battery is flat. At first I thought there was an issue with the devices communicating with each other. Although the grip charges the cam, if the cam’s battery is completely drained it won’t power on again. Very bad, and here you actually need a spare battery for the cam, as there is no way to tell if the cam is “really” powered off." I have not personally encountered the GoPro battery continuing to drain after I've turned it off from the Grip but if your GoPro is drained by the Grip all the way to power failure then it stands to reason you could perceive that problem as the devices not "talking" when the camera has actually died. From what I can tell GoPro customer service has been very responsive after the drama with the Karma Drone so if you don't find your answer here that would be my next step. Sorry for the over explanation, hope this helps and best of luck.

- QuestionCan you charge it with a battery bank while its being used? is essentially extending the battery life. (5 Answers)Answers
Yes. I returned my Karma due to battery issues however while I was testing it I found that it would still function while I was charging the unit. This means that it will work with an external battery source. Check with GoPro to be sure. They have excellent support.

- QuestionDoes it come with any extra harness for the Hero 4? On the verge of ordering one but not sure if it comes with the H4 harness. (10 Answers)Answers
As of right now (December 3, 2016) On the box of the karma grip it says compatible with hero 4 and hero 5 session but the harness is "sold separately". I don't think there will be different SKUs for the karma grip with camera specific harnesses. Everyone is forced to either get the Hero 5 camera or wait for the Hero 4 and hero 5 session harness to come out.
