Best way to hard wire Yi Dashcam

Posted 26th Dec 2018
So picked up a Yi smart dash cam, and currently running it wired with the USB cable supplied. Want to wire it in properly. What’s the recommended way?

I see kits on ebay with a fuse holders to insert into existing fuse locations on the fuse board but heard that this is frowned upon.

I don’t believe my car has any ‘spare’ accessory fuse positions in my car. What’s the correct approach?

Also, the Yi smart dash cam apparently doesn’t have a built in battery but instead a capacitor to hold a limited charge. Should this camera be hard wired to a permanent live or should it be on a switched live/accessory circuit?
