We fitted this brand new Kona EV with the best dash cam and battery pack Thinkware has to offer. The Thinkware U1000 dash cam features impressive 4K front recording and 2K rear recording. It's also got one of the best parking mode features in the industry with various energy saving technologies, memory management techniques, and great alerts. These are further improved when paired to a battery pack like the Thinkware iVolt BAB-50, On a 45 minute full charge, the iVolt should give about 15 hours of parking mode recording with this setup in the normal motion detection mode, that being said there's other accessories like the Thinkware Radar module that further reduce power consumption and extend parking recording times. We always recommend a 128GB Micro SD card when trying to do parking recording on a 4K dash cam system, anything less can be risky when it comes to overwriting.
For this Kona we installed the dash cam on the driver's side where it is readily accessible. As this camera slides to the left to release unlike the F800 or Q800, we can mount it right against the windshield module. The battery fits easily under the driver's seat and is hardwired to the fuse box on the driver's side.
