Rexing V1LG power cycles on and off after vehicle is turned off
Second time this has happened to a V1LG Dash Cam that I have bought from Rexing, and I am wondering if anyone else has this problem.
The scenario is the vehicle is running and the dash cam is working, its recording fine, all is well. I turn the vehicle off the dash cam stays on for the 10 seconds that it should, then it goes into an on/off cycle mode for about a minute or so. This mode is: on for a few seconds then back off for a few seconds and then back on for a few seconds and so on.
Extremely irritating especially if you are sitting in the vehicle for any length of time. Does this for about a minute before it completely shuts off.
A work-a-round is to manually shutoff the dash cam before your shut your vehicle off.
I think in know what the problem is. There super capacitor looses its charge holding ability after about 1 year or so depending on how hot the weather is in your area. Once this capacitor is depleted the camera cannot hold up the recording after the vehicle power is removed.
