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.
Other:
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".
