I just installed an dash cam on my 2018 Atlas SEL. I used the cigarette lighter port as the power source.

My question is will the power turn off from that port? I turn the car off completely and waited over 30 minutes. The dash cam is still on due to the power coming from the cigarette lighter port. Will the dash cam drain my battery?

TIA,
Victor

Yes this will drain your battery over time, either you need to get into a habit of unplugging every time you leave your car or do a hardwire fuse kit check out my post

I think your 12 volt outlet should go off when you turn off the ignition and exit the vehicle. Mine does.
