    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Price is OK;

    - It records;

    - There is motion detector;

    - Long car charger cable.

    Cons:

    - Cheap plastic;

    - Chinese UI language by default;

    - Battery issue.

    OtherThoughts:

    It worked out-of-the-box, but showed red "X" on the battery indicator. And it didn't charge at all - like there is no battery inside.

    I opened this device, unsoldered the battery and checked it with multimeter. Here was just 0v. Then I tried to charge it a little - maybe then camera's charger circuit will see the battery.

    20 minutes charging with 300 mA constant current did the job, after that the battery charged in camera as normal.

    Bottomline:

    There is a "battery thread" in the item's discussion. It shows that battery problems are "normal".
