    Hello
    I read the sj5000 x Elite user manual and at page 14 says:

    TIP: When using your camera as
    a dashcam, use a car charger
    cable and remove the internal
    battery to make sure it does not
    die out while you travel.


    Does this mean that keeping the batery inside when the camera is feeded by a usb plug from car is harmful for the battery?
    Why must I remove the battery? Is this correct?
    Thanks for answers

    Interesting. My SJ5k only works as a dashcam until the battery runs out, then it stops. The car charger USB cable doesn't charge the internal SJ battery as it did for years with my SJ1000. But if I remove the battery, how will the SJ5k save the last file to SD card when I switch off the ignition?
