I bought a bunch of LEDs from superbrightleds 10 or so years ago. They got dimmer and dimmer and eventually went out. Then I went to a LED local shop here that does all installs and does headlights, foglights, tail lamps, sidemarker lights, engine lights etc..-everything. He was able to show me on a meter as well as to my naked eye the different brightness of bulbs he had which are expensive. I got new back up reverse lights that as he said will burn out your retinas. Yes they are great and BRIGHT💥💥💥when in reverse. Had him do all interior lights, map lights including glove box, license plate and engine light . AND these LEDs were better quality and even brighter than the ones from Superbrightleds.I have had good luck with superbrightleds.com. Mostly brake/rear running lights and backup lights for my car and wife's and daughters' cars. The backup lights are substantially better than the incandescents from the factory, regardless of car make (1 Dodge, 1 Honda, 1 Acura, 2 Toyotas, 1 Jeep).
The place I got my latest ULTRA BRIGHT LEDs are from:
Not sure what kind of batteries they use but the dashcam if it has PARKING mode does run off a battery should you choose that option so if anyone bumps your car the camera turns on. I turn mine off because everytime I open or close the doors/hatch it records. My primary reason is for the idiots on the road HERE for collisions which are and can total a car. Parking lot I am not so concerned about but that's just another option I have. When I did use that Parking Sensor feature I did not have any problems with any batteries going dead. Sometimes by accident I left the dashcam on for 6-8 hours into cigarette lighter and the car battery didn't drain. Dashcam battery was fine too.That looks like a good cam.
I searched more on Amazon and found a dashcam that doubles as a radar detector.
But, it was 600 bucks so I'll scale down to something more practical.
If I hardwire the dascam to my car, I guess it won't run down the battery?
Otherwise, do they use lithium batteries, hearing aid batteries?
