When installing dash cams, scanners, radios, and other electronic equipment in your car, it’s important to have the right type of cord. Most of these electronic devices require power from your A/C outlet. In this case, you need a cord that plugs into your car. Connecting a device into your car’s A/C power source turns the device on and off with your vehicle. If it has a battery backup, it may work while your car isn’t running; however, most will turn off.
In some cases, you can hardwire the device into your car’s fuse box system, so it continues to draw power from the battery even when the car isn’t running. This is an excellent option for dash cams that you might want to keep working while you’re parked. Always consult an electrician when doing any electrical work with bare wires.
