    Anyone use the spy tec hardwire kit and fuse kit?

    Spy Tec Mini USB Dash Cam 10 Foot Hardwire and Fuse Kit for A119 A119S G1W G1WS https://www.amazon.com/gp/B01N0GR4ON

    This kit doesn't include the mini fuse. Can someone tell me what size fuse I need? I am a newbie and plan to do the install the a119s v2 on my Sienna this weekend.

    I wouldn't use that one the output voltage is not stable, more so when they are cold

    Go with the MotoPark Fine Safer instead... It does the same trick... hardwiring and also having the BDP (can be disabled)-feature, if needed.

    Bought it from Motopark on Amazon, but it seems they're out of stock currently, with no ETA on restock.

    I see some people tap it into their auto dimming mirror. Is that route any good?

    Finevu Fine Safer S is the same model (another name) as the Power Safer by MotoPark.
    I think they got a new company name, probably.. Can't say for sure. But i found it..

    I don't see any on eBay or Amazon. Can someone tell me what is the voltage for the mini fuse on the spy tech kit?

    they work well with the A119, the fine safer is a great product but it's a power management device rather than a power supply, it will give a 12v output that has selectable low voltage and timer cutoff points that you can set, you plug your included power supply into it

    Does people get both of these to use it together? I see some also choose the vicovation vico power BDP for parking mode. I honestly don't want to install all these that take up room and money. Will be be just fine using that cellpower as a stand alone hardwire kit?

    the Vico Power Plus is an even more advanced power control unit than the Fine Safer, same basic function though, you still have to plug the cameras power supply into it

    Will the cellpower unit work just fine for hardwire?

    I think that's all I needed for now then.
    Do I need to get this with it? Pico 0956PT 10 Amp ATM Mini Blade Fuse Add-A-Circuit Fuse Holder https://www.amazon.com/gp/B001QRSBW0

    you can use that, there's another version power supply which is similar that is pre terminated with fuse tap and earth terminal if you don't want to muck about, same seller of the other power supply has them although I don't see it on their eBay listing
