Dash Cam Battery

Rechargeable Lithium-Ion 3.7V batteries provide backup power & can be charged via the supplied USB cable.

All Nextbase Dash Cams feature an inbuilt Lithium-Ion 3.7V battery. This provides backup power in the event of an accident as well as providing power away from the car to adjust the settings and playback footage. The internal battery is not intended to be used as an alternative power source, or to replace the supplied car power cable or hardwiring in option.

When the Dash Cam is powered in the vehicle via connection to the cigarette lighter or fuse box it will keep the battery charged continuously when driving. The internal battery can also be used when the Dash Cam is on Parking Mode. With power from the 12Vdc connection off, typically by removing the key from the ignition, the battery can be used.

How long does a dash cam battery last?

A Dash Cams internal battery should provide approximately up to 30 minutes recording time on a full charge. The battery is designed so that the Dash Cam will function in the event of power loss within the vehicle.

It is highly recommended before first use to charge the Dash Cam for up to 2 hours. This gives the internal battery a full, uninterrupted charge.

The internal battery can also be used for parking mode when the 12Vdc supply has been turned off.

Are dash cam batteries rechargeable?

Yes. When the Dash Cam is connected to a power source in the vehicle it will be charging, which is indicated by a blue flashing light. The internal battery can also be charged via connection to a PC/Mac using the supplied USB cable, or via an external mains power adapter. A full charge should take approximately 2 hours.
