All our TeslaCam drives fit in the Jeda Hub (including the hidden TeslaCam compartment)

Why microSD cards?

The microSD drives we use are designed for Dashcam systems. These cards are rugged, built to withstand extreme heat and cold, which is perfect for being left in a car year round, and have a write speed that far surpasses the minimum Tesla requirement (4 MB/sec).

Regular USB flash drives cannot withstand the constant recording that takes place with Dashcam systems and will fail…probably when you need it the most. microSD cards, specifically those in this package, are up to the task and can handle the burden.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tesla vehicles that have AP2.5 hardware or later are compatible with recording video to a USB drive. 

AP2.5 hardware started shipping on Tesla vehicles starting in August 2017, with a full conversion in October 2017. 

USB recording is NOT compatible with AP1.0 or AP2.0 hardware (vehicles manufactured before August 2017).

No, your Pure Tesla USB drive comes entirely pre-formatted for TeslaCam.

Simply open the package and plug the USB drive into your Tesla. That's it!

One minute of footage has a typical size of 30 MB. Using that metric:

128GB – Approx 71 hours of footage

256GB – Approx 142 hours of footage


International shipments going through customs are subject to inspection and, depending on your countries import policies, may be assessed import fees/VAT upon arrival and are the responsibility of the customer. This only applies to specific countries.

Items that are in stock will be processed and shipped within 1-2 business days. 

Items shipped using our Free Shipping option take 3-5 days for delivery (after shipment).

Items shipped using the Priority Shipping option take 2-3 days for delivery (after shipment).

Items that are out of stock (backordered) will be noted on the product page and during checkout.

Dashcam is a system built into your Tesla. When a properly formatted USB drive (like the one we sell) is inserted into the USB port in your Tesla, the car will start recording from the front, left, right, and rear cameras. 

The system retains the most recent hour of footage before overwriting itself. 

To save footage, simply tap the Dashcam icon (small camera with red dot) and the last 10 minutes of footage will be saved permanently to the SavedClips folder on the drive. It will remain until you delete it.

Sentry Mode, when enabled, monitors your Tesla while it is parked and locked. When a potential threat is detected, the system enters Alert state, which starts the four cameras recording (front, left, right, rear) and also displays a message on the center screen.

If the threat becomes physical (entering vehicle, damage, etc) it will enter Alarm state and will activate the lights, horn, and music in the car.

Video clips from both Alert and Alarm states are saved to the SentryClips folder on your USB drive. The oldest clips overwrite when the drive fills up.

    Once I got it I was very happy. Plug and Play. That being said, I got the email saying it was delivered and it was not. I was in a bit of a panic and writing an email to you when it finally showed up. You might want to mention to USPS not to say it was delivered when it was not.

  15. Fred Hassen (verified owner)

    Awesome! Just plug it in!!

  16. Robert T (verified owner)

    I placed my order for two of the USB/MicroSD packages and received the order quickly and was pleased with the packaging. The drives work well, except for the glitches that are part of Tesla’s dashcam implementation, which is still in beta. As the camera capabilities on my Model 3 grow and improve, I am confident that I will be well prepared to take maximum advantage of them with these nice little cards and thumb drive housings. Thanks Jeff.

    works as advertised. plug & play

    I spent several unsuccessful attempts to format my chip . I saw Jeff on line PureTesla.com and then purchased a pre formatted chip on a stick. Success! Thanks Jeff and your site is very informative.
    Great site.

    Pure joy. I learned things I would not have otherwise known. Very easy to use and support is superb. I have more quality usb drive and memory card than I would have used for increased future reliability. Don’t hesitate. Worth every penny. Worry free.

  24. Lawrence J. (verified owner)

    Reasonable price, shipped quickly, package was easy to open.

  25. Glenn M. (verified owner)

    Bought this with complete confidence that it was the right drive, formatted properly. It is, and it is! Jeff was super prompt and communicative. Also, his videos are extremely useful to Tesla drivers.
