The battery isn't necessary as chatoyer has explained. If you don't care about parking mode, then you're good.

I had my multisafer recording for 12 hours after parking, or before the battery reached a certain level. A few times I got a battery drain message, but it worked.

In reality, you really only need the dashcam when driving, that's when the money shot is (when you need to refute accident claims). Parking issues are usually not as significant.
