BlackVue released the B112 dash cam battery pack a few years back. While it worked, the product lacked the power delivery/capacity than other battery packs offered. We’re happy to announce that BlackVue has revisited their battery pack and are able to offer the brand new BlackVue Power Magic Ultra Battery B-124, the higher capacity and more reliable big brother.
Above is a chart from BlackVue which shows the duration that is expected from the B-124 battery pack. That being said, runtime could be longer in parking mode than the above times as the unit may not be constantly active.
Just like the BlackVue B-112, installation could not be any easier. The B-124 comes with both cigarette input cable as well has hardwired input cable. With the cigarette input, it's as simple as plugging the cable into the cigarette jack of the vehicle. For those who may be more inclined, it is also possible to hardwire the B-124. While it may be a bit more difficult to install than simply plugging it into the cigarette outlet, hardwiring the B-124 allows the battery to charge quicker, reducing the amount of time needed to reach full capacity. While using the cigarette input option, it takes about 80 minutes to charge and while it’s hardwired the charge time is reduced to 40 mins. Those who have a shorter commute a hardwire option would allow the dash cam to charge quickly and record for a longer duration.
The B-124 also features built-in Bluetooth connectivity which allows for smartphone’s to connect with BlackVue’s corresponding app. Download the BlackVue Battery app on either iOS App Store or Google Play Store, and you’ll be able to see exactly how much battery life is left, and it even shows an estimated time left before the battery is fully depleted.
For those who are looking for either an easier way to install their BlackVue dash cam to enable parking mode or for those who wouldn't want to worry going back to a vehicle that won't start or if your dash cam had caught the incident or not. The BlackVue Power Magic Ultra Battery gives you the confidence that the dash cam is powered during your time away. As always if you're unsure of which battery pack to get your dash cam, you can always contact us here.
