Yes, if you can fit a beefier amp battery, that would help. But then you have to figure what the charging current the car supplies is, if it's too small, you might never fully charge the new bigger battery unless you take extended drives to top off the battery. Or you could plug a charger in, oh say once a week, to top off charge the bigger battery. Or then ....You might as well install a 2nd 12v battery, Running a dash cam 24/7 can be a tad much. Do you know the current draw of the cams? Knowing that will help you figure out a battery budget. Of course you will have to charge it regularly, so 2 batteries might be a better idea, While one charges, the other is working, then flip - flop 'em. Other than that, anther option might be to find a system that has a lower current draw! This is a unique problem to newer cars. Manufacturers put just the necessary battery in, not the brutes the older cars needed!
