Your new car battery keeps dying. You were sure you didn't leave the headlights on. Yes, you have a dash cam with parking mode enabled, but it is hardwired to your car's battery, and the installation was done a few months ago, and you've never had any problems until now. Could it really be the dash cam that's killing your car battery?
Many people are rightly concerned that hardwiring a dashcam will draw too much power and give them a flat battery - after all, a dash cam hardwired to remain on for parking mode recording will continue to draw on your car's battery. If you are hardwiring your dash cam to your car battery, we strongly recommend using a dash cam or a hardwire kit with a built-in voltage meter that cuts out when the battery reaches a critical point to prevent it from going flat.
But say, you're already using a dash cam with a built-in voltage meter - your battery shouldn't die, right?
