Thats something similar to Ebay guarantee. However this will be a black mark for the seller. Hence, they will usually mark it as shipped sometimes and later actually ship the product.

Even my second order placed on 19th Jan got cancelled. Received a mail yesterday.

The first order placed on Jan 17 is shipped.

Not too bothered about the second one getting cancelled.

Is there a battery operated Dashcam that can run for 6-8 hours?

I am okay with
  • VGA resolution
  • Charging the device before and after a long trip

I think action cameras like GoPro could give you long hours of recording on a single charge, but still may not be 6 to 8 hours.

Another idea is to use a regular dashcam and power it using a power bank. A big power bank like 8000 or 10000mAH should give very good backup time.

I've extended the processing time by 3 additional days. I can extend it again I guess. Let's see if the seller gets fed up and ships

If you have a power bank, i suggest you to use that for your dashcam. My dashcam (BP 2.0) which is used for one hour per day, my power bank (ADATA PT100) can run for more than a month before i need to charge it again.

What should be the capacity of Power bank? I have a Ravpower 10040mah unit.Is it sufficient?

You'll be very lucky if you get 3 hours running time on a GoPro or similar action cameras

use the following website for tracking in English
http://www.17track.net/en/

You can also try
http://track-chinapost.com/startairmail.php?code=


If you still get messages in Chinese, Use Google Translate

Results were in English:
17track:Item is not found at this moment, If necessary, please verify with the package sender and check back later.
2.Track-Chinapost:Parcel#02*******02 is invalid, China Post has not received any parcel associated with !
So,I guess seller may not have actually despatched yet but given a random tracking #.
OR,as it is not sent by Registered Air Mail, tracking # is unavailable.
[AliExpress tracking#s usually have "RJ..digits...CN. I have in the past tracked them successfully]

Mine is 10000 mah. This should be more than sufficient in your case. Apart from dashcam, I also used my power bank to charge my mobile (occasionally when i had to drive with google maps ON) and bluetooth ear set.
