This Super Capacitor is used to replace the standard LiPo battery that come in the Mobius & Mobius2 camera (will not fit Mobius Mini or the Maxi). The Super Capacitor is useful and suggested when using the Mobius ActionCam as a driving recorder where continuous power is supplied to the camera during operation. LiPo batteries don’t respond well to this sort of situation and may cause shortened battery life.
The Super Capacitor is not a battery, so once installed the camera must be externally powered for use.
Replacing the Battery with Super Capacitor: Battery can be changed by removing (2) screws on bottom, front of case, sliding and lifting cover off. Existing battery is stuck to the inside of case with double sided foam tape; unplug the 2 pin connector from the Printed Circuit Bd and remove battery. Assemble new Super Capacitor by pealing liner from foam tape and locating in the same position as the battery just removed. Plug wires/connector into PCBd connector noting that it only plugs in one orientation. (Red wire closest to wall) Insure wires do not get pinched, re-assemble cover and screws.
1. Do Not touch any other components on the Printed Circuit Bd and be careful to not transfer static electricity to the PCBd. (It is helpful to touch something metal before opening up the case so that you would dissipate any charge you might have on your body)
2. This Super Capacitor will only work in the Mobius1 or Mobius2 cameras, The Mobius Maxi has a different connector on the battery
