Vava hd cam charging

Finally opened my Kickstarter VAVA HD Camera. After installing the USB wire and the handy dual port charger w/battery I plugged in the camera. It beeps a few time with a blinking blue light then shut off. Does it need to charge for a while?

I charged it overnight in the house and it appeared to work well during my commute. When I got to work, I turned on the battery-backup-charger so the “Park” feature would stay on. But when I returned several hours later, the camera won’t turn on anymore, not even when starting the car. It’s back on my kitchen table charging again.

The Android app is having a difficult time connecting to the HD CAM as well. The App crashes when trying to connect to the camera. Phone is a Note 8. iPhone 6 works just fine.

Thanks for the help!
