Firmware version:

The DDPAI Z40 is powered by the car’s on-board network or HardWire Kit, it does not have a built-in battery, and the shutdown is due to the use of a supercapacitor (ionistor 5.5 V with a capacity of 2.5 F). This solution has an unlimited service life (does not swell like a lithium battery) and is more resistant to extreme temperatures.
With the rear camera, the current consumption during recording is about 1A:

Installation does not take much time. On the glass, to facilitate dismantling, it is better to place the film. The main thing is not to forget to degrease the glass. For dismantling, a plastic spatula is included in the kit.
