1) I have a new car (under agent’s warranty), am I allowed to install the B-124 to my dash cam to enable the parking mode?
Professional installation should not void any new car warranty. However, if you do not wish to hardwire the B-124 into your car, the B-124 can also support charging via the car cigar jack. If you plug your B-124 directly into your cigarette socket, then this should not cause any issues – just remember to run the B-124 in the LOW mode only.
2) I have a high-end/luxury car and I heard that some installation methods of the B-124 can cause a battery warning error?
The B-124 battery is a standalone power supply, therefore it will only be charged when the car engine’s is running and hence it will not cause an error like “Excessive Leakage Current” in BMWs.
3) What is the advantages of using a B-124 battery over tapping the power to my existing car battery instead?
Automotive batteries perform and behave differently to regular lithium ion batteries found in smartphones. Unlike lithium-based batteries, batteries for vehicles last much longer when stored in a charged state. Instability caused by leaving it discharged most of the time will increase the sulfation process, a build-up of lead sulfate crystals. A sulfated battery can lead to:
By installing the B-124, you can ensure your batteries health is maintained, while also having the benefit of running your dash cam in parking mode for extended periods of time.
**You need to drive for 40mins – 80mins per day at least in order to charge the B-124 to it’s full capacity. Shorter driving times will result in fewer hours of parking mode. Charge time is also affected by the charge mode setting (9A/5A).
