As winter approaches it’s getting colder and colder every day. But just like the heat, the frigid temperature of the cold can cause some dash cams to stop working. But have no worries, we have a few models that we would like to suggest for those of us that live in colder climates.
For 2-channel dash cams, the options are plentiful. But when looking at minimum temperatures it can handle, there’s a handful that is better than the rest. The flagship cameras F800 Pro from Thinkware, the DR750S from BlackVue ,and the CH-200 from Blacksys can all handle temps as low as -20°C or -4°F, so while driving, it is not a problem at all. Even during parking, taken from customer feedback, most of our cameras had no issues in the cold especially when paired with a Cellink Battery. The Cellink is actually an excellent addition for those who reside in colder climates. It allows the dash cam to properly record and continue to record even when the vehicle’s off. Best yet, it doesn’t drain the vehicle’s battery which can be vital in colder climates.
For 1-channel cameras, the Thinkware lineup is capable of handling up to -20°C as well as BlackVue. However, while the VIOFO is rated for one of the best to be used in hotter temperatures, it’s not rated as well in lower temperatures as it’s only rated to -10°C or 14°F. But the best in terms of temperature immunity has to go to the Street Guardian’s lineup. Both the SG9665GC or the SGZC12SG are able to handle as cold as -20°C or -4°F all the way up to a boiling 90°C or 194°F it has the biggest range of any of the dash cams we carry.
No matter where you are, whether it’s the cold climates of Alaska or the Hot deserts of Arizona, we got something that will suit your climate needs.
