  • It will automatically start to record as soon as the ignition is on and you can set how long to record once engine off, BUT! This does not have an internal battery and will only stay on recording for a maximum of 20 seconds after power has been stopped…
  • Very good quality at night as well and it does have built in battery which will last for a minute or something for emergency recording…
  • The only small downside is if you don't use it for a couple of days you have to reset the date, time etc as it does not have an internal battery…
    LeEcHeR (Amazon.co.uk) - November 2015
  • Just a bit disappointed for the money paid in a high end dash cam you expect it to come with features that many of the lower cams come with like a built in battery…
  • As stated don't leave it switched on you will flatten you battery if the car is not used for a day or two!
  • Not having a battery is a plus in my opinion because there is no need to worry about battery failure…
  • You do need the camera plugged in for it to work as the battery isn't used to power it…
  • Also of course it has the battery feature…
  • Also has a small battery that provides power for 30 seconds after car ignition is off which could be handy in an accident situation…
  • That it has a battery is one of the best features…
