I usually like to Route it through a battery bank (Rated for higher temp) with a small switch or controller (basically so it can switch to car battery if low). Also allows you to keep loop recording without any worry about draining your battery.

I'd like to use it with a LiFePO4 dashcam battery but they're too expensive for my needs. I only need the parking mode for a few hours while running errands. At work and at home, my car is well covered by security cameras.

Do you set it just to stay on for a couple hours?

The hardwire kit has a voltage cutoff. It turns the camera off when the car battery reaches 12V. It's good for several hours of parking mode coverage.
