12V Battery Protection - Powercell 8 Review & Installation

Your car’s 12V accessory battery can get drained if you have an accessory like a dashcam that runs 24/7, and it can eventually cause your 12V battery to fail permanently. Fortunately, there is a solution to protect your 12V battery, the Blackboxmycar Powercell 8 Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery pack, with Bluetooth. If you want to see the product and its details, how it can be installed, and find out how much it costs, then this video is for you. I hope you like it. CRITICAL INFO - UPDATE 2023-06-18 : - (A) I repeat a mistake in the Viofo T130 specs, saying it is a 4K camera, but that is an error, it is actually a 2K front camera. Sorry about the confusion. - (B) The Blackboxmycar Web page for the Powercell 8 has a note hidden at the bottom of the specs and is kind of critical. I wish I had known before making the video because I would have put far more emphasis on it... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Changing Passwords If you are planning on changing the battery password, you will need to enter the default password '1234' when prompted for the old password. Note: There is no password retrieval or reset function. Password reset is a function that can only be performed by technicians at the manufacturer. The Reset function within the Battery Manager App is for resetting the default battery settings (ie. the Dual Charger setting) only and will not reset the password back to the default "1234". Because of this, we strongly recommend that you don't change the password unless you absolutely needed to, and if you do change it, make sure to keep a record of the new password. Once you have changed the password, you will be asked to re-enter it every time you access the Settings menu within the Battery Manager App. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ===== EV-olution Links ===== EV-olution Merchandise: https://www.ev-olution.ca/shop If you feel like buying me a coffee... https://ko-fi.com/ev_olution My Web site: https://www.ev-olution.ca/ Webpage to see the products I use: https://www.ev-olution.ca/products-i-use Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ev_olution_inevitable Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/evolutioninevitible/ REBATE LINKS: BlackBoxMyCar Canada Affiliate Link: www.blackboxmycar.ca?ref:ev-olution_CA BlackBoxMyCar US Affiliate Link: www.blackboxmycar.com?ref:ev-olution_US RetroCarGuy530 Video I watched and reference: https://youtu.be/Joa0fiKZY-o He also made a newer comparison video that may interest you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gn3IoBjO_Vg ======================== Credits and other links: Subscribe Button by MrNumber112 https://youtu.be/Fps5vWgKdl0 00:00 Intro 00:37 Full disclosure 01:05 What is it?

Hyundai Ioniq 6 In-Depth Review

Hyundai Ioniq 6 In-Depth Review

Hyundai Canada lent me the new Ioniq 6 AWD Ultimate electric sedan for 1 week and this video shows you the features, details, specs, options and prices, as well as how it drives and handles. Plus, a side-by-side comparison with my Kia EV6 GT-Line. If you are considering the Ioniq 6 then this video should interest you. *** ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Thanks to Alexandre Zenga for pointing out that there is a very small icon on the climate control panel, towards the bottom left, that is for the heated seats and steering control access. It is not the same symbols as in the Ioniq 5 or EV6, so I completely missed it... especially since it is kind of tiny 😎 Thanks again for pointing out the button. *** ===== EV-olution Links ===== EV-olution Merchandise: https://www.ev-olution.ca/shop If you feel like buying me a coffee... https://ko-fi.com/ev_olution My Web site: https://www.ev-olution.ca/ Webpage to see the products I use: https://www.ev-olution.ca/products-i-use Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ev_olution_inevitable Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/evolutioninevitible/ Hyundai Canada Ioniq 6 page: https://www.hyundaicanada.com/en/coming-soon/2023-ioniq-6 Hyundai US Ioniq 6 page: https://www.hyundaiusa.com/us/en/vehicles/ioniq-6 ======================== Credits and other links: Subscribe Button by MrNumber112 https://youtu.be/Fps5vWgKdl0 00:00 Intro 00:25 Ioniq 6 details & prices 02:04 Specs for each trim 03:08 Colour options in Canada 03:21 Trunk space and details 07:05 Tire mobility kit 07:24 Rear seat space 08:34 Rear seat details & features 10:05 I criticized what?! 10:55 Front seat space design 12:08 Battery conditioning mode 12:41 Fast charging speed 13:05 Center console details 14:20 Android Auto and Apple Carplay 14:50 Interior layout – Buttons, screen, steering wheel, details 17:32 Overhead console details 18:21 Glovebox 18:41 Sound system information 19:12 Rear view mirror details 19:40 HUD (heads up display) 20:07 Interior finish vs EV6 20:52 Rear deck and window 21:07 Front seat headroom 22:05 Front seat legroom 22:37 Ambient lighting 23:32 20 Inch wheels and tires 24:18 The frunk is different 24:50 Use your smartwatch! 25:50 Side-by-side with EV6 30:22 Driving the Ioniq 6 34:10 The sedan market and Ioniq 6 36:17 Be part of the EV-olution 37:13 Bloopers
Project Arrow at the Montréal Electric Vehicle Show

Project Arrow at the Montréal Electric Vehicle Show

The Montral EV show had Project Arrow, the Canadian prototype EV and I got access! Also present were the Corvette E-Ray, Cadillac Lyriq, BMW iX, Chevy Equinox EV, Kia EV6 GT, Ford F-150 Lightning, Vinfast VF9, and much more. I recorded as many cars as I could get into in the time I had, to give you mini reviews of each. There were more vehicles than I could get to, including the Lucid Air, but I will get around to testing one and making a video about it. Let me know which EV you would most like to see up close and personal in a video by posting it in the comment section below. ===== EV-olution Links ===== EV-olution Merchandise: https://www.ev-olution.ca/shop If you feel like buying me a coffee... https://ko-fi.com/ev_olution My Web site: https://www.ev-olution.ca/ Webpage to see the products I use: https://www.ev-olution.ca/products-i-use Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ev_olution_inevitable Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/evolutioninevitible/ Fastco Canadian wheel manufacturer: https://fastco.ca/ APMA website: https://apma.ca/ Project Arrow website: https://projectarrow.ca/ ======================== Credits and other links: Subscribe Button by MrNumber112 https://youtu.be/Fps5vWgKdl0 00:00 Intro 00:29 Ioniq 6 00:44 Polestar Roadster 01:08 VW I.D.

EQ 010 - New Tuxmats after 1 Year

EQ 010 - New Tuxmats after 1 Year

How does the new version of Tuxmat car mats hold up after 1 year, including winter? Are my Kia EV6 carpets still like new? How do you clean the new Tuxmats? I show you the answers to these questions in this video. Spoiler… the results are amazing! NOTE: Back in 2021 a viewer in Europe, Pau Iglesias, wanted some Tuxmats but could not get them there. He found and bought Spartan Liners, and at the time they were the same as Tuxmats. If you are in Europe and are interested in Tuxmat car mats then you may want to investigate Spartan Liners.
