  • control settings like charging current, voltage cutoff, LED indicators

Multiple Connections Options

Input Cables

The BlackboxMyCar PowerCell 8 comes with multiple input cables and options, including a 12V Power Cable that you can plug into the cigarette lighter socket (6A) in your vehicle and a Hardwiring Cable that you can connect to your vehicle's fuse panel (9A) for a faster charging speed.

Output Cables

  1. Unspliced 3 Wire Output Cable - splicing to a dash cam hardwire kit will be required

Which power output cable do I need?

Not sure which one you need? Check our Choosing the Right Output Cable for Your Battery Pack guide.

USB Power Outlet

With the popularity of Cloud dashcams such as from BlackVue and Thinkware, PowerCell 8 comes with a 5V USB 3.0 power outlet, this simplify the setup of mobile router in the vehicles. ​

Expansion Battery for More Power

PowerCell 8 works with the Cellink Neo Extended Battery Pack, giving you more the option to expand for more power whenever you need.

Power Duration Capabilities

A fully charged BlackboxMyCar PowerCell 8 battery pack can run a single 1-channel dash camera for up to 48 hours, while a dual-channel system can be run for about 35 hours with its integrated 96Wh. This measurement based on continuous runtime.

How Does It Work?

When vehicle's ignition is switched ON, PowerCell 8 battery pack charges and supplies power to the dashcam.

When vehicle's ignition is switched OFF, PowerCell 8 battery pack supplies power to the dashcam independently until power depletes.

1. Simple installation using 12V Power Cable

Just plug the battery into the cigarette lighter socket of your vehicle using the included 12V Power Cable.

Changing Passwords

If you are planning on changing the battery password, you will need to enter the default password '1234' when prompted for the old password.

Note: There is no password retrieval or reset function. Password reset is a function that can only be performed by technicians at the manufacturer. The Reset function within the Battery Manager App is for resetting the default battery settings (ie. the Dual Charger setting) only and will not reset the password back to the default "1234".

Because of this, we strongly recommend that you don't change the password unless you absolutely needed to, and if you do change it, make sure to keep a record of the new password. Once you have changed the password, you will be asked to re-enter it every time you access the Settings menu within the Battery Manager App.

Powercell 8

Battery seems to be just fine if you want to go with this option. Although I would recommend that you hard wire instead of using the 12v power outlet, the 12v does the job but for quicker charging hardwire would be best

Toyota wouldn’t hard wire my Pruveeo Dashcam. I bought the Power cell 8 and extended battery pack. I had to purchase the Pruveeo hard wire kit with module. Works great. I’ve had it in for about a week now.
