Those looking for a great parking mode security setup should always consider a battery pack when installing a dash cam. The battery pack not only removes stress from the car's electrical system but it also extends parking recording significantly. With a 2CH camera like the Blackvue DR900S-2CH, the Cellink Neo can extend recording from a mere 3-4 hours (typical Japanese sedan on 12.0V cutoff) to about 15-16 hours. Those who need overnight recording must opt for this battery as factory batteries simply can't supply that much power.
Our customer wanted to run Blackvue Over the Cloud which further increases battery drain so the battery pack was a must. A cigarette splitter could also be added to the battery pack to charge a hotspot device or other 12V accessory. The battery pack tucks under the driver seat nicely, a bit of the rear passenger's foot room is lost with the battery in position. This battery also features a bluetooth app to check charge status.
