    Might want to take the battery out while you do this, can get quite warm.

    of course you can, I always use powebank to record longer than the battery capacity, e.g when I record timelapse or when I use my Yi as dashboard Cam,

    see my Yicam as dashboard cam on this video.

    hello i'm trying to use yi 4k with external power bank, latest firmware 1.6.10, without battery. i tried this one https://www.amazon.it/gp/B01L90C9HQ but after around 1 hour the recording stops by itself. so i tried another this one http://www.belkin.com/us/p/P-F8M979/ and again same issue recording stops after around 1 hour and half. the cam gets pretty hot so i'm thinking about a heat issue. what else can i try to find the problem?
    thnx

    Charging does not affect anything unless you are connecting it to PC and chose the mass storage mode.

    AliExpress has Yi on sale and an additional $2 coupon https://www.aliexpress.com/store/1303715
