Looking for a good dash camera that does not require a cord to power it.

I am looking for a good dash camera for my car that does "not" require a cable.  Hate the way those look

I called them.  They do not sell any that do not require the power cable.

What I'm seeing is battery issues, I've only seen one (specifically marketed as a dash cam)  that claims to last about 15 min with no power even with a 320mAh battery.  Lithium batteries and heat don't go well together.  They don't mind the cold, but heat cam swell them up and explode.
If you've ever seen the violent reaction of a lithium battery exposed to air, that could be a major damage issue to the vehicle  also.

Maybe a rechargeable Go-Pro or another brand action cam  is the way to go.  Mounts galore.  But, still, heat and cold are the major issues with battery powered dash cams. Even if you go the action cam route, I'd get a mount that's easy to take the camera with while you are parked during extreme temperature bouts.

Thanks.  I also contacted, FalconZero.  They do not make one.  I think you are correct on the ones that have batteries.  Very low run time.
