“Safety is our top priority,” GoPro CEO Nicholas Woodman said in a release about the recall. “A very small number of Karma owners have reported incidents of power failure during operation.

We are very sorry to have inconvenienced our customers and we are taking every step to make the return and refund process as easy as possible.”
