No issues with running battery flat. Been using energy saving mode for longer record times. It goes to sleep and will record when there is impact.
I might consider adding on Thinkware ivolt battery but I'm satisfied with current settings for now.
Thinkware U1000 works like a treat. It's one of...
Sorry for confusion. It's running 24/7 but parking mode is set to motion detection.
So the dash cam is always on to monitor any movements but only records when motion or impact is detected.
Correction - winter battery protection powers the dash cam off 0.2 volts above 12.2V
Right now it's recording 24/7 but I might try energy saving mode later on to put the dash cam in sleep mode to save power consumption.
In motion detection mode. Thanks for the advice - I have it set to 12.2V and it is still going good.
Great to hear :thumb: How much did your batter pack cost?
I’m using a Thinkware dash cam hardwired for running 24/7 while parked. I don’t to flatten the car battery and it drains pretty quickly in the cold. But I have not installed an external battery because it will cost me £170.
So I’m trying out battery protection on Thinkware Cloud app...
