Dashcam cable with battery monitor is still draining battery?



  • Hello, I installed the USB dashcam cable a month or two ago, with the battery monitor, and it seems like it is draining the battery anyway — I've had to jump-start the car a few times now, typically after leaving it sitting for three or four days. Is this something that the battery monitor should be preventing or is this too long for it to work?




  • @Roger Ford How old is the battery? Maybe we need to tune the threshold a little. There is a very fine balance between recording time and battery holdup.



  • @mx5things brand new — the car has less than 500 miles on it.



  • (I guess the battery might have been sitting around for a while — it's a 2019 model I bought new in May 2020.)
