Depends whether it records impacts when the car isn’t running. Mine does, but has negligible impact on the battery. On some dashcams this function becomes inoperative when the battery reaches a certain level, configurable in your dashcam settings.

NO it doesn't... The socket is turned off by the car, I run mine from a usb port ... Same thing, that's why the camera turns off - the power is removed !
