Anyone tried a Sima SL-100IR light for their dashcam?

    Yup the cord I linked to fits in the back just fine and charges from a high power USB phone charger. It's got to be 2+ amps though. The Monoprice 4 port 9.6 amp car charger has been working great.

    Yes, I used the suction mount that I listed. It worked great. It screws into the tripod mount on the bottom of the light.

    The blue cord is not the light cord. The blue cord is a micro USB charging cable from Monoprice. I believe it's the one connected to the stereo for Android Auto (I don't have an Android but I hooked up a cable so I don't have to pull the dash apart again if I get one).

    I use the 4SK909 Twister model by The Original Dash Cam. I had bout another model that I did not like the video quality, all models I've tried really cannot do night shots to well. But for the cost of them guess should be expected. True nightvision cameras cost thousands of dollars. I really like this one and love that I did not have to run wires for the rear facing camera.

    These would be cool to wrap around the headliner in a perimeter!
