Costco just brought out the 2020 version of Type S wireless solar powered 720 P HD backup camera There are similar solar powered wireless backup cameras online: https://amzn.to/3nzTQGN
There are several improvements to the 2017 – 2018 versions I bought and reviewed. I bought the 2017 version of the Type S Solar HD Wireless Car Backup Cam for $124! Here is the install and review video ( https://youtu.be/SP5ifKcy7Vk ). It has lasted past 3 years with occasional charging. I normally park outdoors in full sun. This is a good kit if you don’t want to splice wires and just want a plug and play solution. There are other wireless backup cameras which use 12 volt power from a reverse light ( https://amzn.to/2OdiudB ), but this unit makes it even simpler for the DIYer!
The 2020 TypeS Solar Wireless Backup Cam uses two solar panels on each side of the license plate to power the camera! It has a battery and solar panel built in to the license plate! From the specifications, they now have a 5000 mah battery, which is larger than my 3350 mah battery in the 2017 version. The camera is also off center on the frame. The new version also is able to use two cameras for the front and back view. According to the box, they assume you will leave your car charging in the sun for at least 2 hours a day, and using the backup camera for less than 10 times.
The installation instructions are virtually the same as my 2017 version and will probably take about 10 minutes to install. The backup camera kit is activated by waving your hand at the monitor , touch screen, and by g-sensor (car movement) to wake up the camera.
