Can a dash cam drain your car battery? Many drivers have pondered this query.
The answer, in short, is yes… However, the answer is not as simple as it seems.
Dash cams are handy devices for capturing unexpected incidents on the road. Dash cams, like other electrical devices in your car, such as charging your smartphone, listening to music, or turning on the lights, need access to your car’s battery.
If left unchecked, continuous use of these cameras could potentially cause some degree of battery drain. But don’t fret just yet!
