Hard wired as in connected to battery for recording when parked? What hard wired kit did you buy?

Maybe a dumb question but - if I buy two of these (front and back) and hard wire them, how big of a load is this on the battery? Say I didn't drive my car for two weeks in the winter, would there be any reason to worry that the battery would die? My battery literally died on Saturday while I was out and I just had it replaced so it's more on my mind now.

People around you may have weaken immune system (or live with one). Wear a mask if possible, especially if you have cold symptoms.

I have this cam along with the A129 Duo. The latter has wifi. I would highly recommend one with wifi as it’s a pain moving your stored videos by ejecting the sd card and using a pc - that’s the last thing you’d wanna be doing after a crash

I dont know about on sale but I've read good things about the sandisk high endurance cards since they're designed to be overwritten constantly.

I leave my V3 in my car all the time. It's mounted as close to the top of the windscreen as i can get it, just to the right of where the rear mirror is, and the lens just peeks out below, and it's pretty well hidden. Sure if you look hard enough you'd see it.

I've also got it hardwired, but I'm not using parking mode, so when the car is off then I'm fairly sure it's not pulling any significant current from the battery. It's sat in the garage for at least three or more weeks and battery has been good.

The hardwire kit has a built-in shutoff you can set. I think mine is set for 12.0/24.0V. For me the camera will work in parking mode on battery for about 3 days before it hits the cut-off and shuts off the cam.

Also looks to be on sale right now for $20. It's been $30 for quite a while.

Any good/reliable fuse taps kits anyone can recommend? I also have the HK3 hard wire but i feel like the fuse taps would work better for me than actually wiring. I have no electrical knowledge.

Yes all the time. I have it set to record continuously in low-res mode when the car is turned off.

You can request the hardwire kit to come with the fuse instead by messaging the seller.

I bought this one and it's probably not the highest quality but it has been working fine. Just make sure the fuse type is compatible with your car:
