i am also thinking of using external battery to connect to parking mode, but i see the speed my phone is being charge up inside my car, i don't think the external battery will be charge up alot unless you drive like 45mins a trip?

Anyone using external battery can share your experience?
Yes, would take about 45mins to fully charge. Depending which camera you use amd whether front only or dual channel, would need to see whether it covers the longest car parked duration you are expecting.

Zhutou, yes i also feel not worth it. My friend use external battery for his V9 because he says conti cars with complicated electronics, better dont hardwire to car battery. Mine Japanese car.

Only concern about testing the wear on car battery is that there is a chance you are caught with a dead battery one day, and you might be in a rush to go somewhere.

Dun worry abt battery wear
Keep a portable jump start battery in ur car
If happen that battery flat, just jump start urself

Usually people who use parking mode, the car battery can last around 1.5 to 2 yrs only i think
Ok la one battery 100+ only

Install V9 iroad

Hi

I decided to install V9 at nam huat and it cost me $800

It include V9 (front n back) + Carecell + installation + 64G memory card.

It is very easy to use and connect to my Samsung Note 5 easily.

No problem with 24/7 parking motion mode and image quite clear

What is your longest parking period? The Carecell can keep the camera running throughout, no shutdown?

Yes the carecell can allow it to run all night non stop. I bought the one with higher capacity that cost around 320.

HI

I think you should be able to find a cheaper price than mine. Honestly I am too lazy to
search. Let me breakdown my cost

V9 + Installation = $420
Carecell (I bought a bigger capacity) = $320
64 memory = $ 60

Anyone that get cheaper price please share and benefit all
