Welcome to our collection of dash cams equipped with cutting-edge capacitors!

Engineered for reliability and durability, these dash cams are designed to offer seamless performance even in extreme weather conditions. The incorporation of capacitors ensures consistent power supply and greater temperature tolerance, providing a more reliable alternative to traditional battery-operated dash cams.

Explore our selection of capacitor-powered dash cams, known for their enhanced stability, longer lifespan, and ability to withstand varying temperatures without compromising recording quality.

Whether you're seeking a reliable parking mode or consistent performance in hot or cold climates, our range of capacitor-powered dash cams delivers the assurance and dependability you need for comprehensive vehicle surveillance.


Do capacitors last longer than batteries?

Capacitors generally last longer than traditional batteries. In the context of dash cams, capacitors are more durable, with a longer lifespan, and can withstand extreme temperatures better than regular batteries. They don't degrade or suffer from the "memory effect" like batteries, making them a more reliable power source for continuous use in varying weather conditions. However, they also store less energy compared to batteries, so their use depends on the specific needs and functions of the device.

How do I stop my dash cam from draining my battery?

To prevent your dash cam from draining the car battery, consider using a capacitor-equipped model, which offers benefits such as low power consumption and reliable power storage. Capacitors in dash cams efficiently manage power, ensuring minimal strain on the vehicle's battery. Adjust your dash cam's settings to activate power-saving features like a parking mode that consumes less energy or uses motion detection to activate recording. Additionally, using a dedicated hardwiring kit or a capacitor-equipped dash cam can help avoid excessive drainage by cutting off power when the car battery reaches a certain level. 

Should I unplug my dash cam at night?

It's generally not necessary to unplug your dash cam at night. Dash cams are designed to operate continuously and are particularly useful during the night to capture any incidents or activities near your vehicle. They typically consume a minimal amount of power and are engineered to work 24/7, even when the vehicle is not in use. Unplugging the dash cam at night might interrupt its recording capabilities and surveillance, especially during parking mode, where it functions to monitor the surroundings when the car is stationary. If you're concerned about power consumption, most dash cams have low-power modes or settings specifically designed for parking, ensuring they use minimal power while still being operational.

Does a dash cam reduce battery life?

A dash cam typically has a minimal impact on a vehicle's battery during regular driving. While driving, the power draw from the dash cam is usually insignificant. However, during parking mode or when the vehicle is stationary for extended periods, the dash cam might slightly contribute to the battery drain. Some dash cams have features to prevent excessive draining, but using a dedicated hardwiring kit, a dash cam with a capacitor, or low-power parking mode can help manage power consumption and reduce the impact on the battery.
