Done (see previous post), thank you Mobius!
What setting did you select for power-off disconnect? Immediate or 2 seconds? I have found that the Maxi capacitor can tolerate 2 seconds without power, which helps a lot with brief power interruptions.Putting SuperCaps into a Maxi has put me right back where I started: On the bike, missing/corrupt clips, some out of order. On the bench, the Maxi with SuperCaps performs perfectly, whether started w/charged caps or drained/empty caps.
Camera draws .5A while charging caps (20-25 seconds), then drops to .25A while recording. Using 1-min. clips 1080p/30, fine, on w/external power.
Have to believe Maxi as dashcam on motorcycle gets power disrupted by starting motor and doesn't recover for 3-4 minutes.
(Previous corrupt file issue - dashcam with battery installed - solved by changing recording from 3/5-min. to 1-min clips.)
Glad to hear that is now working for you. You may not see any current drop on your ammeter, but the camera may sensing a drop at its USB port, just enough to make it shut down.Did the same for my 2nd Maxi cam; one has a battery, the other has SuperCaps. Both are now functioning perfectly with Tony’s suggested 1-min. clips and 2-sec. off delay.
