Just bought one to replace one of my dashcam, which is a yi dashcam bought in 2016. The yi dashcam still records videos flawlessly and keeps date and time correctly, but I think some electronics is failing. It keeps restarting many times before completely turning off. So that's a good 3 years plus, close to 4 years which is very good for a dashcam powered using lithium polymer battery.

The car rarely parked under hot sun, at most once or twice a week. That probably contributed to the battery's longevity, it can still power up for quite a while without external power haha.

That's why I went ahead and purchase another dashcam powered by lithium battery. If always park for long hours under hot sun, then it's a good idea to get a supercapacitor one

Yes if can park indoor 90%+ of the time and not drive a lot in the sun also, can get lithium battery dashcam.

Brother blurjoey, any comment for Xiaomi 70MAI Rear Mirror Car Recorder Dashcam D04 1600p Full HD Dashboard Camera?

I planning to install to one of my car that's without reverse camera.

Thanks bro.. during your test you have installed the backup camera? Do you know how it's work and how the dashcam knew that a card is reversing? Any idea?

I didn't use the rear cam. Usually, there is an extra red wire that you need to wiretap to the reverse light.
