Hi all,
i have a dash cam ( not hard wired) i leave permanently plugged into to the 12v socket , even though it switches off after i remove key from ignition does it still drain the battery ?

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 !

no, it only drains the internal battery of the dashcam

Aye , that would be useful at the moment , my Vw Golf had this option. Very expensive to replace if broken though !

Previous car was a ford, miss the heated screen. For condensation i brought two Pingi bags which helps a lot. Just tuck them into screen corners.
