BlackSys CH-100B Dash cam Review
With Wi-Fi connectivity, mobile app integration, and car parking mode, BlackSys CH-100B is one of the best front and rear dash cam that amazingly offers HD recording.
All you need to know about the BlackSys CH-100B 2 Channel Dash Cam
So far, I have introduced several front and rear dash cams like BlackVue DR650GW-2CH, Falcon Zero F360, ThinkWare F770, Rexing V1P. This time will also be another cool 2-channel camera gadget for your car, and for sure, it won’t disappoint you at all!
This easy-to-use, easy-to-install gadget comes with several sophisticated features including two impressive high definition cameras with wide angle lenses. The 1080p full HD front recording lens and the 720p HD rear recording lens give you a wide view around your vehicle at an angle of 135-degrees and 130-degrees respectively.
How does it look like?
I like how Blacksys CH-100B is designed: simple and light-weight. It looks like a very tiny “projector” on my dashboard. Of course, the design is not as creative as Falcon F360, I believe, but because of its small size, it absolutely never blocked my driving view in front of me. On the front camera, there are the 4 basic buttons to turn on/off and control the dash cam. Below those buttons, there are four LEDs indicating Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS signal, front and rear dash cam recording. What’s more, it is so easy to set up even for any new dashboard camera user.
How good is recording quality?
The front camera's video quality is good during the daytime as well as night time. The rear camera records fair image quality videos provided the street is well lit up. However, honestly, you won't see much of the view from the back when driving on dark roads. The manufacturer provides us with a durable 20ft cable to link the two cameras in the car and you can find out how to hide the wires in your car through my other article.
BlackSys CH-100B 2-channel dashboard recorder supports Wi-Fi to help you manage it using your Android or iOS smartphones. You can also transfer your videos to your tablet or phone through a free mobile app. This is a great feature considering that the camera doesn't have a screen like THINKWARE F770 or BlackVue DR650 GW. With Wi-Fi connectivity, you do not need an LCD display. I could simply playback my videos from wherever I am with my laptop or mobile device.
Surprising how I can record over 24 hours of footage with the CH-100B!
This recorder can take microSD cards of up to 128GB capacity. Dash cam first started with a limited memory space of only 16-32 GB. But now, with this much capacity, I do not need to overwrite or transfer my videos every 2 weeks or so. If you don’t want to buy a high capacity memory card, you also get a free 16GB microSD card when purchasing this product.
Are accidents or collisions recorded?
For sure, it won’t ever miss recording any important events! The G-Sensor ensures your cameras record any accident or collision. Scary, isn't it? On the other hand, the true parking mode includes motion sensors to turn on the cameras. It also helps you conserve energy and space available on your microSD card.
Another impressive feature is the durability under extreme temperature. The BlackSys front and rear dash cam can withstand extreme temperatures. Your vehicle's interior temperatures can easily exceed 100oF (over 37oC) when left outside in the sun with the windows closed. Surprisingly, this dashboard camera can withstand temperatures ranging from -4 to 150oF (-20 to 70oC).
Not everything about this dash cam is perfect!
You will experience several downsides of this dash cam. First of all, unfortunately, this dash cam won’t support you with any GPS tagging. Consider to get yourself a separate GPS unit if you need one. Affordable GPS trackers are readily available on the market. Luckily, this camera is still compatible with most varieties. Secondly, you may encounter with some delay when trying to use the Live Viewing feature, especially from the rear camera. Therefore, it is not a brilliant idea to use it for parking assistance.
To sum up,
The benefits of this front and rear dash cam certainly outweigh its own under-performing features. Thus, BlackSys CH-100B indeed deserves your whole attention. Apart from its sleek design and great features, it offers clear videos and is easy to set up.
