      What you described will indeed clear the warning, but it will also entirely defeat the purpose of the battery monitoring system.

      As the battery ages, the system triggers the "low voltage" warning...

      I don't use parking mode on my camera. It's wired into a fused accessory circuit that is not powered unless the ignition is in position II. So the camera shuts itself off when I turn the car off.

      The link he posted earlier days it draws 1 amp at 5 volts. So a bit more than 0.4 amps at 12 volts. However, there's no way that the converter is 100% efficient, so the actual draw is probably...
