Viofo HK4 Hardwire Kit for T130

The HK4 hardwire kit allows the T130 dashcam to have parking mode which will record video and audio even when the car is powered off. When used with a fuse tap kit the installation is 100% reversible and no cutting of the car wires is required.

Fuse Tap Kit.png

Micro2 Fuse Tap Kit

The Kia EV6 and Kia Niro EV use Micro2 type fuses. The fuse tap kit allows for a non-invasive installation of the dashcam, making the installation fully reversible while keeping the protection of the car equipment and adding power and a fuse for the dashcam.

Viofo CPL.png

Viofo CPL for T130

With the CPL reflections in the windshield of the car are eliminated from recordings of the T130 dashcam. In my opinion this should be included with every dashcam and not an option.

Viofo Remote.png

Viofo Bluetooth Remote for T130

The Bluetooth remote makes saving T130 recordings easy. No need to stretch to press the button on the dashcam, simply place this remote close to your hand and saving a recording is a snap. Very convenient and discrete.

Lexar 128GB microSD.png

Lexar 128GB microSDxc

You don't need to spend a ton of money on a memory card, just buy a good brand that is UHS1/Class10. I bought this Lexar 128GB 633x microSD and it works perfectly with the T130. You can also buy the Viofo branded memory cards, but they are more expensive.

Console Tray.png

Center console organizer tray 

The armrest of the EV6 is very deep, which is useful, but if you want to keep smaller items close for easy access the storage is not very convenient. Ian Talbot from an EV6 Facebook group bought this item and suggested that I try it. Ordered, it arrived in 24 hours, and it is now being used in my EV6. I will make a review video about it because there are some things I like and there is one thing I don't like.

Flo_X5_Web.png

Flo X5 Smart Charging Station - Web Connected

I have a small business and it was important that I continue to deduct "fuel" expenses for business use. I chose the Québec made Flo X5 smart station. It has a Web page with an abundance of information and settings, as well as e-mailing me a detailed report of each charging session, to the 1000th of a kW, with the time and date.

Veepeak Bluetooth OBD2 Adapter for Android

This OBD2 device is the Android only version. Unfortunately, the Torque Pro app is only available on Android and I have not been told of a quality equivalent for iOS.

On Amazon: Veepeak OBD2 BT Adapter

Windshield_Cover_Web.png

Windshield Snow and Ice Cover

Something you take for granted in a gas car in the winter, is the heat created by the motor. The heat melts snow and ice that accumulates at the bottom of the windshield where the wipers are. In an electric car you don't have a giant heater under the hood so snow and ice accumulate where the wipers are and it can be pretty difficult to clean out. A viewer was kind enough to share a link to a product he bought, a windshield protector that also covers the wiper area. I bought two of them, one for me and one for my wife, and love them.

I will make a video about it eventually.

La Station Verte GDC-LS30 - Not Web connected

I wanted to try another Québec made brand charging station for my wife's Soul EV. The GDC-LS30 is a smart station, but not Web connected. All details of charging sessions are on the screen, it offers PINs to lock it from public use, and is made with outstanding quality.
