This camera uses a capacitor, not a battery.
This Processor is NT96655

The product page claims you get 20 hours of 1080P footage on 128GB card. Using the recording time calculator [dashcamtalk.com] this puts the bit-rate around 14Mb

I've had this for almost 3 months and am pretty happy with it. It's small and unobtrusive, comes with two kinds of mounts (sticker and suction cup, I use the suction cup mount so I can easily switch it between cars), and the capacitor hasn't been an issue in the insane southwest heat. Just make sure you choose a high endurance memory card to use with it. Here are some recommendations: https://www.carcamcentral.com/gui...ltra-cards [carcamcentral.com]

This is the memory card that I got: https://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Po...B06VSMZBBX [amazon.com]

Here's a good video on how to hide your wires (I tucked my wires behind the roof liner and A pillar for a stealth install): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwD8Ilk-MHU

Going to throw in my 2 cents as I also bought this during the last deal and have done quite a bit of testing with it. There is some misinformation in other posts here that I will correct as best I can.

First off, agree with others regarding install. Very easy, and there are options given with the extras in the box. The power cable is quite long, but is mini-USB, not micro-USB, and the cable plugs into the top of the camera, not on the bottom or on the mount. I put it on my windshield and it has generally held there...came off once in very high temperatures. Just moisten the suction cup and you're good.

Video quality is adequate. Has a pretty wide FOV, so objects on camera appear further away on video than they really are. You do get good coverage though. Picture is sharp enough to read license plates if you are close to the vehicle in front of you, but illegible at longer distances. Perfectly fine for the price.

Night vision is surprisingly good. So much so that I was actually surprised at this price point.

Can be used with or without the screen on. There is a tiny LED on the side that flashes green when the cam is recording.

This does have a shock/motion sensor that can be adjusted for sensitivity. If your vehicle has an "always-on" charging port and you plug this into it, it will automatically begin recording when it detects motion. When you park, it will record briefly after you exit, then drop into standby mode until it detects motion/shock, at which point it will begin recording again. If someone bumped your parked car, it should initiate recording. If your charging port is only powered when the ignition is on, then of course this standby mode won't work.

The shock sensor can be set that the cam will automatically save the current video in the event of a collision, or you can click the bottom left button to manually store videos of interest.

The menus are easy to navigate and reasonably easy to understand.

Can record video in multiple resolutions (up to 1080p) and framerates, to include audio if you so choose. I bought a high-endurance 16gb card that is working fine so far.

The text surrounding the lens on the front of the camera is cheesy-looking. Wish the front was solid black, but that's just aesthetics.

This is my first dashcam, and I thought that initially I would try it, decide I needed a $300 Blackvue instead, and then give this to my wife. I won't be doing that though as this one is serving me just fine.

*CAUTION: This product has a D rating on fakespot: http://fakespot.com/product/aukey...ard-camera

1.5 Star trustworthy rating and they also rate the company at a C.

A lot of red flags....

The same product on the Amazon UK site has a 4.5 star rating [amazon.co.uk] and a B grade rating on fakespot: http://fakespot.com/product/aukey...dr01-black

But I recommend that everyone do their own research in order to be an informed consumer. Read the written reviews, watch the YouTube video reviews (here's an interesting clip [youtu.be] from a youtuber that I follow), and then decide for yourself if you think this is a good buy.

Finally, inevitably in these threads there will always be noobs asking why anyone should run a dash cam. For those people I present this link: http://www.insurance.com/auto-ins...h-cam.html

You might already be aware but here it is, alot of YouTube reviewers get paid now to say good things about there product even if its worth less and useless and drive sales so just saying just like u should not trust fakespot dont trust YouTube and just make sure when u make the purchase you are aware that u get what u paid 4

I own this.. the picture quality is great.

I like that it comes with a dual USB plug for the outlet so you can still charge your phone.
