Viofo A129 Duo, mini 0806 (RIP)
Sadly, after several years, one of my mini 0806's failed. Thankfully SquareTrade refunded my purchase price. I was going to buy either a Viofo A119 Pro or an A129, but my car is already custom wired for two mini 0806's, which require a micro USB cable. So, I think I'd rather just get a new mini 0806. The only problem is that many reputable retailers (i.e. SpyTech) no longer carry the mini 0806's.

I do see that amazon.com is selling a mini 0806 for a decent price, but I'm unfamiliar with SplashETech. Does anyone know if this version of the mini 0806 is made by the same manufacturer as the one I purchased several years ago from SpyTech? Does anyone have any experience with SplashETech? Better yet, is there a new version of the mini 0806 that has a capacitor instead of a battery?

Any advice and/or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

there is only one manufacturer of that model so regardless of who you buy it from it should match what you had previously

Thanks jokiin. I decided to use the remaining mini 0806 as the rearview camera, which isn't in direct sunlight and purchase a Viofo A129 for the front. Why continue to support a dashcam that has been problematic from the start? :)

well I didn't want to be the one to say it, but I think you came to the right conclusion anyway
