I meant, why a battery instead of capacitor(s).
battery camera is easier to make, for a motorcycle there isn't the heat problem that you would normally get with a dashcam in the window, not really an issue for this application

You're probably speaking from experience but capacitors still would have been the way to go. On a really hot day, even just parked under direct sun, no parking mode, still not good long term.

Is parking mode a thing with these? How much would one get, an hour or two if I had to guess.

in a bike application the main unit is more likely to be out of direct sunlight in the majority of installations, bike electrical systems are more of a challenge than a car so a battery does make things more reliable in some cases, certainly easier

I wouldn't use parking mode on a bike if you were using the bike battery as a power source, they have very poor reserve capacity

The Viofo MT1 uses capacitors, but as jokiin says, there is no greenhouse effect on a bike, or at least most bikes. Use of a super capacitor does mean you don't have to keep the DVR box out of the sun and can also use it in cars, but for bikes that are not used for long periods, may result in loss of clock time.

Given that the DVR box can be a reasonable size when both cameras are remote, a battery can also be a reasonable size. A battery would make a parking mode on the camera's battery possible, probably not overnight, but enough for stopping at the shop/fuel/pub. Don't know if the B1M provides parking mode?

The other day I received a B1M, there was a slight delay in delivery - the seller assured that the dashcam was in stock, but as it turned out, a new batch appeared only at the beginning of July.
I ordered on AliExpress
While I will check, I will test, I will look "at the table".

First impressions - the build quality is good, the main unit is surprisingly very small - only 58x88 (100) mm, the block thickness is 20 mm. At the bottom of the block there is a platform for fastening to a 3M tape and two blind nuts for M3 screws.
Camera cables 5 mm thick, power cable and control panel - 4 mm.

In addition to a long power cable with an adapter, the kit includes a 1 meter USB cable.

I measured the current consumption by connecting it to a 5 Volt outlet, on average it turned out 750 mA.
Power consumption approx. 4 W (3,927W)

PS: I will add more information and photos later. The B1MCAM application works well.
