Overview

Thinkware iVOLT BAB-50 Battery Pack

Designed for Thinkware Dash Cams, the BAB-50 is an excellent solution to enhancing the parking mode features of the dash cam and eliminate wear and tear on the vehicle’s battery. When your vehicle is powered off, the BAB-50 will provide power to your dash cam for parking mode recording.

The BAB-50 is compact-sized, making it easy to hide inside the vehicle, especially in smaller vehicles. The BAB-50 takes approximately 45 minutes to fully charge (7A Speed Charge) and can power a dual-channel dash cam system up to 16 hours.

Made up of LiFePo4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) cells, the BAB-50 is designed to withstand extreme temperatures, go through more charge cycles (up to 1,500 charge cycles) and is more environmentally-friendly than traditional Lithium-ion batteries.

Without a battery pack, some vehicles may bring up a ‘Battery Discharge’ warning if you leave your dash cam running in Parking Surveillance Mode for several hours as it is detected as an excessive vehicle battery drain. Fitting a battery pack is the best solution to prevent it from happening.

Note

12V Cigarette Charging Cable is not included. The iVOLT BAB-50 must be hardwired to the fusebox.

Thinkware Hardwire Kit is required for the Unspliced 3-Wire Output Cable option. We strongly recommend soldering the wires for a secure connection between the Thinkware Hardwire Kit and the Unspliced 3-Wire Output Cable. For a plug and play experience, choose the Spliced Hardwire Kit.

Works well, but a different hardwire charging cable maybe required.

The Thinkware battery works well. When switching from a Cellink battery (Cellink B or Celling Neo) to the Thinkware battery, you will need a different hardwire charging cable. The hardwire charging cable that connects to the the fuse box and attaches to the battery, has a different plug type. In other words, the cable for the Thinkware battery has a female end while the cable for the Cellink battery has a male end. So, be prepared to replace the cable when switching battery types.

The Thinkware battery does not have any audible tones. You will have to rely on looking at the red or green lights to know if the battery is charging or not charging.

Velcro Doesn’t Stick

The Thinkware iVOLT BAB-50 battery works fine. Katrina helped me figure out how to hardwire the properly. The only issue I have is with the Velcro. The Velcro doesn’t stick to the carpet under the driver seat in my new 2021 Toyota Sienna. I purchased industrial strength Velcro from elsewhere but that too doesn’t stick. I suggest including Velcro that actually sticks to carpeting in any vehicle, if such Velcro even exist. Other than the Velcro, everything else is good. Katrina responded to my email messages instantly and was able to answer all the questions I had.
