Installed a separate battery to power the front and rear dash cams. I got paranoid of having the dash cam draw power from the battery directly since I use the centre console 12v which is constantly on. I also wanted my dash cams to remain on while parked out f the house with crazy people these days.
Here's the battery unit made specifically to power the dash cam:
It recharges when the vehicle is on as well as power the dash cam at the same time. When the vehicle is off, the built in battery kicks in to power e dash cam up to 20+ hours.
This is where I connected it via a power inverter. Wires are still exposed prior to being tucked away. Kids constantly kick the rear seat as you can see:
Here it is neatly tucked away under the front passenger seat and secured via Velcro:
