Can I power a V1 and Aukey dash cam from my mirror?

I have a V1 mounted to and powered from the mirror. Does anyone know if I can also mount an Aukey dash cam and use the same power source for all 3 (mirror, V1, dash cam)?

Is there a diy post on the forum for powering things from the mirror, because this is the first I'm hearing about this and its genius lol.

No I'm totally serious. I'm pretty new to radar detectors and dash cams and the idea of powering it from the mirror was not something that ever crossed my mind.

Amazon Amazon

I'm going to try this.

My V1 is mounted with a Blendmount and their mirror tap kit (https://www.blendmount.com/mirrortap.html).
