PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING

Please read this important notice regarding compatibility. It is important that you check the firmware version of your Cellink NEO base battery unit before ordering the Cellink NEO Extended Battery Pack.

You can check the firmware via the smartphone app when your Cellink NEO is connected via Bluetooth. Please see our screenshots tab for more info .

If your firmware version, seen on the lower right-hand corner of the app, is F146 or older (i.e. a number is "146" or below), you will need to send your Cellink NEO base unit to us for a free firmware update. The return shipping is on us!

Please contact us via email or over the phone at 1-888-978-6560 and we will send you a free return shipping label. Please note that both your firmware updated Cellink NEO base battery and your new Cellink Extended Battery Pack will be tested and sent back to you together as one shipment

If your Cellink NEO’s firmware is above F146, you will not need to send your Cellink NEO base unit to us and can just order the Extended Battery Pack now.

Please note that the Extended Battery Pack is meant to be a supplement to the Cellink NEO Battery pack. It will not work as a standalone product.

With dash cams becoming more common, it’s much more apparent that we need a new way to power these cameras. If you leave your car parked for long durations and want even more protection from hit and runs, the Cellink NEO Extended Battery Pack is perfect for you!

The Cellink NEO is the latest in dash cam battery packs with an integrated smartphone app that lets you quickly see the battery percentage as well as power draw. Even so, some may feel they need more power, which is where the Extended Battery Pack comes in. This unit acts as an expansion pack, providing more run time to dash cam's from a full charge of both the NEO and the Extended Battery. With a single Extended Battery added to a Cellink NEO unit, the system is able to power most single channel dash cams for 56 hours (up to 50 hours for the DR900S-1CH) of parking mode recording, while 2-channel dash cams can expect around 40 hours (up to 30 hours for the DR900S-2CH) of parking mode recording. Multiple Extended Battery Packs can be chained together to create a system that can last for as long as you desire! Do note that every unit added on means that much more time will be needed to reach a full charge

With an integrated smartphone app and through a Bluetooth connection with your smartphone, quickly see the battery percentage as well as power draw. There’s no need to look at the battery once it’s installed making it effortless to use. This app is available on both the iOS App Store as well as the Google Play Store.

Power Duration

A Fully charged NEO (no Extended Battery) can run a 1 channel camera for about 45 hours (up to 25 hours for the DR900S-1CH) while a dual channel system will last about 25 hours (up to 15 hours for the DR900S-1CH). However this is continuous run time, and some cameras such as BlackSys and Thinkware dash cams have dedicated parking mode systems where it can run much longer than that.

We have tested out and in an optimal situation the main NEO battery was able to power a Thinkware F100 2 channel camera in a vehicle for 2 days before discharging while in parking mode.

Having one Extended Battery Pack attached can double these numbers. The Cellink NEO Extended Battery Pack differs from the base system by having a boosted, integrated 84.5 Wh capacity which explains why adding it on will more than double the overall performance.

What's Included

  • Cellink NEO Extended Battery
  • Charge Transfer Connecting Cable
  • 2x Velcro Strips

Cables Explained

Input Cables

Cellink Hardwire Kit: Allows the Cellink to charge at a higher rate of 9 Amps so it’s able to charge the battery in 45 minutes to full

Cellink 12V Cigarette plug: Easier for install however charges the unit with lower current of 5 Amps extended the charging time to 1hr and 20 minutes

Output Cables

Charge Transfer Connecting Cable: Allows the Cellink NEO Extended Battery Pack to connect to another unit, be it a main battery unit and/or another Extended Battery Pack. This will allow the units to link up and transfer charge to one another.

Female Cigarette Socket Output: This should be used for BlackVue dash cams and other cameras that switch into parking mode using the G-sensor. These are cameras that switch into parking mode after your vehicle is parked for a few minutes. The BlackSys dash cams can also work with this output method if the "use external power" option is enabled.

Spliced Hardwire Kit Output Harness: This kit is designed to work with the BlackSys and Thinkware dash cams. The hardwire kit is pre-spliced by one of our technicians so that it will switch into parking mode based on the ignition. Thinkware dash cams will not switch into parking mode if the female cigarette socket is used. (*Note that the LG Innotek dash cams take a different 12V cable and will not work with this harness, email us if you want to order it with an LG hardwire kit)

Unspliced Hardwire Kit: If you already have a three wire (B+, ACC, Ground) hardwire kit, you can splice it into the Cellink output yourself. This is a good option for the DIY-ers out there

FAQ

What is Parking Mode?

Parking mode is offered on most of the dash cams available at BlackboxMyCar. While it is important to protect your vehicle while driving, it is just as important to have your vehicle protected while it is parked. When the dash cam is in parking mode, footage will only be saved when there is an impact and/or motion. Parking mode can be enabled with a hardwiring kit or a battery pack.

For more information on parking mode, click here.

What is a Hardwire Kit?

A hardwiring kit enables parking mode. It allows your dash cam to remain powered on even when the vehicle's ignition is turned off. Installation is a breeze as you will only need to find an accessory fuse, constant fuse, and a grounding point.

What is a Battery Pack?

Most customers purchase the battery pack to avoid using the vehicle’s battery to power their dash cam. The battery pack is charged by either being hardwired into an accessory fuse or by being plugged into one of the vehicle's 12-volt cigarette sockets. We recommend the hardwiring the battery pack as it charges the battery pack quicker.

How much footage will my memory card store?

On average, a 2-channel dash cam writes 16GB/hour and a 1-channel dash cam writes about 8GB/hour.

Do I need a Rear Camera?

Accidents or events don't always happen at the front of the vehicle! Having a rear camera provides coverage for any events or accidents that may happen at the rear of the vehicle.

For more information on rear view cameras, click here.

Do I need a IR Rear Camera?

An IR camera is designed to record the interior of the vehicle in low light conditions. This option is very popular among rideshare drivers.

What is a CPL filter?

A CPL filter attaches to the dash cam lens to eliminate lens flares, light reflections, and windshield glares.
