This pen records in 1080P, with the use of the integrated power bank you can record up to 3 hours on a full charge.
The are however two flaws to this Pen. It is a bit bigger than it’s counterparts so it is harder to hide if you are spying on someone and it also can get a bit hotter than regular Spy Pens if you use it for a prolonged time.
What to expect for the future of Spy Pens?
As components become smaller, it will be harder and harder to differentiate between a real pen and a spy pen.
You can expect a new model to come out each year with a better battery, better video quality, and a slimmer design.
