Understand Nexar One battery capacity and its relation to Nexar Connect features.
A fully charged Nexar One should have a standby time of around 16 hours. If you have a +Connectivity add-on with a Nexar Connect subscription, you will probably want the ability to get real-time parking incident alerts or to live stream remotely. When initiating a Live Stream, the camera "wakes up" and streams for one minute. You can expect to initiate 1-2 Live Streams, depending on the battery status of your Nexar One dash cam.
You can extend your Nexar One’s battery life by using a compatible continuous charging accessory (coming soon!) for a worry-free remote streaming experience. By using this kit, remote streaming will not drain the dash cam's battery while the vehicle is parked. The dash cam will have sufficient power to stream directly to the user's phone remotely, anytime anywhere!
Battery Saving Mode
If you see a low battery status in the dash cam status bar this means that the battery level has reached 30% and the dash cam has entered Battery Saving Mode. To avoid complete drainage of the battery, you will not be able to initiate a live stream in order to preserve battery for parking incidents. No worries, your dash cam’s battery will be charged when it's connected to power while you are driving. It could take between 45-95 minutes to reach 100% battery, depending on the state of the battery.
Parking Incidents with Battery Saving Mode
Nexar preserves battery to allow the dash cam to wake up in case of a parking incident. In case of impact, Nexar One will turn on and record a 30 second parking clip. The video will be uploaded to the cloud and you will get a SMS (if you have a +Connectivity add-on and active subscription). If you would like to start a Live Stream after getting this SMS you can head in to the Nexar app and tap Live to initiate a remote stream. This button will be disabled after 5 minutes.
Extend battery life (Coming soon!)
By using a Nexar compatible continuous power accessory, you will enjoy:
- Aesthetics - no extra charging cables that use the cigarette lighter outlet
- Increased battery life - provides continuous power supply to your dash cam
- Parking Mode - as the battery's capacity is not "limited", parking mode will last longer
- Remote streaming - by using the kit, remote streams will not drain the dash cam's battery while the vehicle is parked for long periods. The dash cam will have sufficient power to stream directly to the user's phone remotely, anytime anywhere.
