Yes. Developing the Unleashed we wanted it to be as tiny as possible so it can actually stay on the camera at all times. From our own experience we know that once you have to take camera gadgets off, charge it etc. most of the time you forget that you even have them. The Unleashed is designed to be unobtrusive and power saving so it can stay attached to your camera. Of course, you can always choose when to plug it in or unplug it.
