Viofo A129 Duo Dashcam Kit - Front and Rear Cameras
I installed a front and rear dash camera kit in my Niro EV. It offers 1080 HD video with excellent quality at a reasonable price. Although available from other suppliers I chose this one since they are an official Canadian supplier that honors warranty.
Samsung EVO Plus 64GB MicroSD used in dash cam
This is the MicroSD memory card I use in my Viofo A129 Duo dash cam setup. There is no valid reasonto buy a "special" memory card. I used a cheap, regular MicroSD for 7 years in my previous dash cam and never had a problem.
I did not make a video about this since there are lots of channels that are specialized in cameras.

Hood Struts for the Kia Niro - EV and other models
The Niro is a great car, but when it is -20C and dark outside, fiddling with the little hood prop is a pain when all you want to do is put windscreen washer fluid in the car. These inexpensive hood struts are very easy to install and are very inexpensive.
Watch my video on how to install them in 15 minutes:
Lumenex LED Reverse Bulbs for the Kia Niro (and other cars)
Although the Niro EV (e-Niro) is a great car, the reverse lights are very small, very low, and use incandescent bulbs that look like they are from the 70s, making reversing in the dark no fun at all. The Lumenex 921 LED lights make the reverse lights incredibly bright. Watch this video to see how good they are:
Carbon Cabin Filter for the Niro and Ioniq* (97133-2E250)
This is the second Niro EV cabin filter I bought, the better version. Kia part number 97133-2E250. This fits the 2019+ Kia Niro and the *2020+ Hyundai Ioniq.

Viofo HK3ACC Hardwire Kit for A129 and A119V3
The Viofo A129 dashcam has parking mode that records video 24/7 to offer extra protection. It requires this hardwire kit to be enabled.
I also recommend buying the fuse tap kit to make the installation fully reversible, no cutting and splicing.
Fast Wheels EV01+ wheels made for electric cars
In 2019 found that Fast Wheels, a Canadian company, made wheels specifically for electric cars. When I saw them, I fell in love and ordered a set. They are light, efficient at speed, and in my opinion, look amazing.
I made 2 videos about these wheels:

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 details and e-mails me a detailed report of charging session, to the 1000th of a kW, with the time and date. See this product is in the video below:

Camwipe for Kia Niro - Reverse Camera is always clean
The Kia Niro has an advantage of the reverse camera being below the rear wiper pivot point. A smart guy named Eldar Ibisevic invented the Camwipe so you never have to wipe off the rear camera with your fingers!

EVOBD2 Module - Plug & Play Hidden EV Information
As much as I like all the possibilities of the Torque Pro Android app that I reviewed last year, the setup is complicated. Jean-Pierre Lavoie invented this little device to let you see a lot of hidden EV information. See my review video for details.
