Q: My camera will not stay on unless it is attached to the power source, the battery does not work.

A: The G1W-C is a capacitor based device and as such it does not contain a battery. The device will need to be connected to a full time power source for operation. The benefits of a capacitor based device are that it eliminates the possibility of battery failure as well as makes the device less susceptible to heat, which can be a common issue with dash cameras in certain climates.
