Cellink Battery supports two charging modes:
• Simple installation:
Just plug the battery into the cigarette lighter socket of your vehicle.
• Hardwired installation:
For fastest charging speed, connect the battery to the fuse panel.
When vehicle's ignition is switched ON, Cellink Battery charges and supplies power to the dashcam.
When vehicle's ignition is switched OFF, Cellink Battery supplies power to the dashcam independently until power depletes.
Above setup will not interfere with car battery's performance and life.
Other Power Solutions is available but uses power from your car battery:
1) Power Magic EZ (plug to OBD port)
2) Power Magic PRO (connection to fuse panel)
To power dashcams for parking mode is a challenging problem where mobile power is needed. Even though car battery has much higher capacity than Cellink battery, it is not designed for routine deep discharge cycles while car is parked hence its performance may deteriorate and life is shortened prematurely over time.
Automotive batteries perform differently from regular lithium ion batteries. Batteries for vehicles last much longer when stored in a charged state. The instability caused by leaving it discharge most of the time (during parking mode), will increase the sulfation process, resulting in the built up of lead sulphate crystals.
A sulfated battery can lead to loss of cranking power (risk of unable to start), longer charging time, shorter running times between charges and shorter battery life. Prolong discharge of car battery may cause electrical error on dashboard! Learn more >.

Cellink battery is normally installed in the location out of your sight.
Cellink NEO supports Bluetooth for compatibility with free Cellink NEO Battery Manager app (iOS/ Android) hence you can easily connect with your smartphone.
When charging, the app displays charge percentage, charging voltage and expected remaining time until full charge.
When ignition is off, the app informs you of the expected Parking Mode remaining time until depletion, based on the dashcam’s power consumption.
EXTENDED BATTERY FOR DOUBLE CAPACITY
NEO comes with Extended Battery port which you can connect to the new NEO Extended Battery to more than double your capacity and Parking Mode time.
The NEO Extended Battery can store up to 6600mAh of power, it's 10% more power than the main NEO battery. Multiple Extended Battery units can be connected in sequence to provide even larger capacity.
To enjoy the rapid charging time of 40 minutes, Cellink NEO needs to be hardwired to fuse panel.
Alternatively, it also supports simple installation to cigar jack (optional power cable) with charging time of 80 minutes.
NEO comes with selectable charging mode switch:
1) HIGH (9 Ampere) - Rapid Charging (hardwired)
2) LOW (5 Ampere) - Low Charging (cigar jack)
