If I recall correctly, when the battery is removed the date/time resets to default. I've always left the battery in the camera while using it as a dash cam so I'm not sure what happens with the date/time (or other settings) when using it without a battery. A 12V adapter was not included with the camera when I bought my SJ4000 WiFi about a year ago. I'm using a separately purchased 12V adapter having a USB port along with a USB x micro USB cable connected to the camera. So far I haven't had a problem with the battery swelling while using the SJCam as a dash cam in the southern US.Thanks TeriTerryTarry for the quick feedback.
Few more questions:
No lose of camera settings like date/time?
Do they provide the 12V power adapter?
Are you using their supplied power adapter?
Or your own small USB car charger with USB female outlet then connecting with a USB male to male cable?
