An alternative to traditional hardwiring kits, dash cam battery packs are for users who want to take advantage of parking mode-equipped dash cams. Powered by LiFePO4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate), battery packs are perfect for drivers that park for longer periods of time where the vehicle's battery is not enough.
This cable certainly simplifies the installation process. The only issue I have had with my 2020 Volvo XC40 is that it sometimes takes a little bit to power on the camera, mostly after sitting for a day or two. Maybe this is normal. Wouldn’t stop me from making the purchase though. They also delivered the cable in good time.
Arrived quickly even though I had to make last minute changes. Blackboxmycar rose to the occasion and everyrthing was handled fast. Customer service was awesome!
product is my second rear camera and works great.
The Power Magic Pro works well, just as stated.
Used this for my blackvue 900 2 channel dashcam. It works fantastic. The staff at blackboxmycar are extremely knowledgeable and intuitive. The customer service was beyond my expectation. Thanks
I YouTube the instruction from various users. The installation was very simple. I was hesitant at first to do it because of the wiring but found it wasn’t hard at all. The most frustrating thing was peeling the 3M tape. I did ask blackbox techs a few questions by email, and they were prompt to respond. I recommend you buy fuse taps and extra fuses that fit your vehicle before you start. These item are found on the blackbox website.
Super professional team!
The best overall experience.
Thanks a lot.
I was in the market to upgrade my black vue and came across this site, not only was the shipping quick but they beat the manufacture website by $100... will definitely buy again
Wonderful product I am very happy with this was a big upgrade from thinkware q800 pro
Had to find a battery to replace my cellink B which suddenly died. Been using this for a bit now and seems to be a lot better. Charges a lot quicker too.
Installation was easy - lots of Youtube videos showing the installation process.
Bluetooth connectivity is helpful, showing battery levels, charge times, and discharge time.
Not so hard to have a clean install, good product, good seller.
I have 2 of these systems, 1 in my Ram & 1 in the Forester.
Camera resolution & view angle are the best.
The app seems sluggish & limited tho.
Over all great feeling if security we can defend ourselves in an accident or attack from a crowd in these crazy times.
I'll never be without these!
Had a few weeks to work with my new Thinkware U1000. Works fantastic and video quality is amazing.
Got it on time FedEx in SoCal. Waited to get up the nerve to first cam install. OK, here I go.. Anxiety in hiding the cable. Most pinched behind the weather strips. Did the set up with a Power Pack in the home the night before with BChobbyist set-up YouTubes. Test drove today: impressed with the vids. Used Polarizing clip-on. Played Mini SD on my Mac. Wondered why the screen shuts off while driving. It's normal I found out. Some JDX classify screen on as a distraction and a vehicle viol. As a Senior, I now feel more protected against false claims, etc.
VIOFO A129 Pro 4K 1-Channel Dash Cam with GPS
Got it pretty fast and I’m very satisfied with this product 👌🏼. I had a problem with my Micro SD card, I couldn’t reformat it (my computer couldn’t read the Micro SD card). I emailed them back and they responded quickly and I’ll be getting my new Micro SD Card. Thanks Grayson for responding quickly! Awesome customer service!
I had a few questions on the installation, I contacted your tech-support and they were answered. The VIOFO A129 Pro Duo is installed and working perfectly. Absolutely great video much better than my previous Dash cam. I will definitely make my future purchases from you, and recommend you to my friends.
I had the dash cams & external battery installed by Car Toys at the recommendation of my dealership (I drive a 2020 Subaru Forester). The guys at CT did great work, all the wires are neatly tucked away and the camera's placement doesn't interfere with my Forester's Eyesight system.
The adhesive that comes with the cameras is excellent for mounting to glass, but my rear camera is mounted to a textured interior panel and the adhesive didn't hold to it for very long. It fell off after less than day. I slapped on some double sided mounting tape about 2 weeks ago and haven't had any trouble since.
So far the camera works great and does everything as advertised. I am noticing that it somewhat regularly locks files on its own so I'm having to reformat the card every other week when it runs low on "unlocked" files that it can overwrite.
The app is pretty sweet overall. It makes changing the cameras' settings a breeze and I can check their orientations very easily with it. I did have some issues with the app not letting me download video files to my camera, which magically fixed itself after I restarted the camera. The new problem now is the app will give me an error when I try to turn off the camera's recording in order to change the settings. It's not a big deal though, I can still manually end the recording at the camera itself and then the app lets me into the settings menu.
Overall I'm totally happy with this purchase!
The install guy was great and very efficient in getting the job done in a timely manner as well as being attentive to making sure nothing was damaged during the full install
I went to the Richmond shop to get the cable, the product works perfectly and the service was awesome
I ordered a VIOFO A129 Pro Duo 4K 2-Channel Dash Cam with GPS on a Friday, and then revised my order the next day to add a couple of fuse taps to make the hardwire installation easier. Katrina contacted me on the following Monday to let me know that the Essential BlackboxMyCar Install Package included the taps, was on sale, and was a cheaper option than buying the fuse taps alone. Now that’s service! I received the complete package 2 days later, and had it installed less than a week after I had ordered it. The high number of good reviews about BlackboxMyCar are well deserved!
I am impressed with the video quality of the Viofo A129. The 4K front camera provides a clear video with good colour balance and clarity (I bought the optional CPL Filter as well), and the 1080p rear camera delivers quality that exceeds what I expected. I’m very satisfied with both. I did test the quality at night, and I think the clarity of the 1080p rear video is actually better than the front 4k at night, although both are very good. That may be due to the CPL filter on the front camera? My vehicle is usually parked in a garage so I wasn’t as concerned about the parking mode or cloud features as some buyers may be, but the parking mode seems to work well.
The installation was very straightforward after watching a few YouTube videos for tips. I highly recommend using fuse taps for a hardwire installation. The front camera is easily detached from the GPS mount so it can be removed from the vehicle easily if desired, but the rear camera can’t be removed if mounted on the supplied sticky mount. My installation was in a hatchback, and I had a little trouble getting the rear camera aligned perfectly, so I replaced the supplied tape with Velcro industrial strength tape (cheap at a hardware store) and bingo, easy to mount the camera and get it oriented correctly! As a bonus, the rear camera can now be easily detached and removed as well.
There is no MicroSD card included with the Viofo A129, so after researching cards I bought a Kingston Canvas Go! Plus 256GB (a U3 V30 card), and it is working perfectly.
There was also a little bonus from Viofo. When I registered the dashcam on their website, my warranty was automatically extended from 1 year to 18 months.
Overall, I’m very happy with the Viofo dashcam, BlackboxMyCar, and a special kudo to Katrina for exceptional customer service!
Easy to install, App works as promised. Will be purchasing more!
satisfied with the unit, works well
Installation was easy, although the default impact detection is a bit sensitive (or maybe the roads where i live are just bad).
Image quality is clear and fantastic on front camera, back camera is good quality for a rear camera also.
Easy to use and made stalling my dash cam quick and neat. Third time I've used them and won't use anything else
