    Hi guys,

    I bought one of these last night:

    together with this:
    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/271056398087

    with the aim of supplementing the charge on my Anypower T-power Plus battery pack when the ignition is off (note: I don't have the Anypower hardwired to the fuse box) and I want to use my dashcams in parking mode.

    A diagrammatic representation of my intended setup is below:

    SunStone Power UPS --> Anypower T-Power Plus Alpha --> cigarette lighter splitter
    -->Blackvue DR600 (Front)
    --> Blackvue 3500FHD (Rear)

    The Sunstone UPS can be fully charged at home with a wall charger and the intention is that this UPS will be providing a good charge to the Anypower (which in turn will power the dashcams). My journeys are never long enough (usually around 20mins each time) to sufficiently charge up the Anypower, hence the UPS idea.

    Would there be any issues with this set up?

    Thanks

    I've made a UPS using 5V power bank (the one used for charging cell phones on the go) and couple of 5v relays. Some DIY required, but it's fairly simple.
    Here are some instructions blog.nagimov.com/uninterruptible-5v-usb-power-supply/
    I've spent total of around $20 on it (reused my own power bank)
