I know the battery is fairly new, but wondering if anyone has done any installs of this battery with a dashcam yet - Blackvue Power Magic Ultra battery B124.

The battery itself is fairly large and wondering where you can hide it - my best guess would be under one of the seats but am looking for other options.

It will be going in a 2018 STI sport tech.

Thanks.

Interesting, I went the hard wiring route. Is it small enough to fit under the steat? My cam gave me such long cords could you stick that junk in your trunk?

Yes it will fit under seat, unsure how long cables are. The B124 is a hardwired battery - basically the dash cam feeds off the battery, which is tapped into the fuse panel and charges off the car battery.

I saw another thread where someone just used the power magic pro as opposed to an external battery and I am now looking into this. i want to set up for parking mode.

On another note, everything i read says that i can mount to tint - if anyone has any experience here, it would be appreciated.

Since my post, i was given another option that i can go with a power magic pro hardwire kit instead of the whole external battery. this will save $$ and also attempting to hide the battery.

I have seen mixed info regarding whether you can mount to rear window tint - any experience here?

I am not sure about mounting to tint but I imagine it would but removing would likely mess up your tint. The tape given is sticky af. I have a blackvue cam & the power magic pro & the only time I had an issue was having it on 24/7 & not using my car for 5 days. You can limit the time it runs though. I actually didn't even mount the power magic pro. I was able to wedge it between the ridges on the fuse door by your left knee.

I have a rear cam on my back tinted window and it has held up for 2 years now.
