iVolt Xtra External Battery
Packing more oomph than its smaller brother, the new iVolt Xtra BAB-95 External Battery delivers high performance, more power, and increased durability to make your Thinkware Dash Cam’s Parking mode last even longer. The iVolt Xtra is encased in an elegant aluminum body that lends it a modern and sophisticated look, and comes with a user-friendly Bluetooth companion app to keep you informed of its state of charge.
The Benefits of using a Dash Cam Battery Pack
Extended Parking Mode
When Hardwired the Dash Cam will record in Parking Mode for approximately 8 hours (depending on the vehicle’s battery level) before powering down to save power. With the iVolt, your 1 Channel Dash Cam can run for 20 hours, and 2 Channel for 16 hours before needing to recharge the battery pack.
Safe for Luxury Vehicles
If you own a Luxury Vehicle such as a BMW, battery drainage not only means replacing the vehicle’s battery but it can also require the dealership to reset the vehicle’s electronics, which can turn into an extremely expensive fix.
By using a Dash Cam Battery Pack, you will still be able to use our Advanced Parking Mode risk-free.
Avoid Wear and Tear
With a Hardwired Dash Cam, the constant discharge on the battery over a long period of time can cause wear and tear. The iVolt Battery Pack only draws power to charge when you are driving the vehicle, which prevents damage to the vehicle’s battery over time. With the ignition off, the Dash Cam relies solely on the Battery Pack for power, eliminating the need to draw power from the vehicle’s battery completely. Features
High Capacity and a Long Run Time
With a capacity of 7500mAh / 96Wh, iVolt Xtra gives your Thinkware 2-channel dash cam 66% more power than the iVolt mini and a long run time of up to 27 hours* while in Motion Detection Parking Mode. In Energy Saving Mode, the battery can power the dash cam for up to 960 hours (40 days)* so that your dash cam doesn’t miss an incident while parked for long durations.
iVolt Battery App
Accompanying the iVolt Xtra is its app, which allows you to check the battery’s status, performance, and temperature. The battery features built-in Bluetooth for easy pairing with your smartphone.
Despite having a higher capacity than iVolt mini, iVolt Xtra can be fully charged in as little as 55 mins*, thanks to the Fast Charging feature. The battery can also be fully charged in 100 minutes* in standard charging mode without affecting the lifespan of the battery. The external battery recharges while you are driving and powers your dash cam when the car’s ignition is off.
Smart Charging helps protect the battery against unexpected situations like overcharge, over-discharge, sudden input voltage change, and low voltage thanks to the PCM (Protection Circuit Module). It also provides Heat Protection while charging. If the temperature of the dash cam rises to more than 80°C, the battery will automatically cut off its power and the power to the dash cam to protect it.
Safe LiFePo4 Technology
The battery is made from Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePo4) material, which is safer and more stable than lithium-ion, and has a lifespan that is 3 times longer than that of lithium-ion and nickel-based batteries.
Compatible with Electric Vehicles
iVolt Xtra External Battery can be safely hardwired into both electric and gasoline cars. However, it is not possible to hardwire BAB-95 in some electric vehicles like Teslas because they do not have a traditional fuse box.
iVolt Xtra External Battery Installation
The iVolt Xtra External Battery is a hardwired product. It is connected to the Fuse Box directly, to charge while driving.
Compatible with all THINKWARE Dash Cam models.
The External Battery requires Hardwiring Cable (sold separately) installation. Hardwiring Cable is included in some dash cam bundles. Please check when purchasing.
