Canon s120 and external power

Canon s120

My battery dies in 5 minutes while recording video. Perhaps if I turn camera off and on I get lots of battery bars again. Did they come up with a fix for this issue? Does the camera really suck up all the juice or is the juice still there and its a glitch that shows the camera empty.

I like to record some of my drives. I found a nice suction cup tripod window mount on Amazon I might order.

Is there some way I can hook up the camera to get power from the cigarette adapter power source in my car? I would like unlimited power.  My car also has a USB wire but its usually used for charging my iPhone and playing iTunes over my car speakers.  Could I use a splitter adapter? If such a thing.

Thank you very much

Here is a recent s120 photo I took

Defuniak Springs, Florida. Hows the photo BTW?
