Cool Karma Grip and Stabilization

Hey everybody. If the the Karma Grip runs out of battery, does the stabilization system still function properly? In other words, can I use the stabilization system without power provided by the battery in the grip and still be able to film a steady shot? The reason I ask is I will be going on a backpacking trip for 5 days without any way to charge the grip. With the amount of filming I am planning on doing, I imagine the Karma will run out of battery in the first day. If that is the case and the stabilization system won't work, I won't bring it with me. I understand that there are extra ways of charging the grip but I don't want to carry that extra weight with me. Any insight would be great! Thanks! By the way I have not bought the the Karma Grip yet. This will help me decide.

No battery - no stabilization. 5 day trip I would find a way to charge maybe solar or buy a different stabilizer that has small batteries

You need the battery.

Pick up a portable battery charger and that should allow you to charge the grip.

i also understand Karma hasn't got changeable battery, so once its flat (which is quite quick) its out of use while its on charge
