About the Ring Solar Charger

Recharge naturally

I just got a notification from Ring saying that my doorbell's battery is low. While it's not excessively troublesome to remove and charge the battery, it's still a hassle I wouldn't mind avoiding. Well — with this solar charger and a few hours of direct sunlight per day, I could.

It comes with everything you need to securely mount it to your wall and connect it to your doorbell. Then the built-in solar panels will do the charging, so you don't have to. Just remember, this one is made specifically for Ring Video Doorbell. If you have Ring Video Doorbell 2, you'll need this one.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I just recently installed this and am noticing a better battery life already, but it is cold and grey out here now. Too early to tell how well it will work with more sun exposure.

Pros: Installation is a breeze, Not needed to charge the battery yet.

Cons:

Looks Great and Works!

William from Clarkston, MI on 1/27/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This product design, ease of installation, efficient charging easily earns a 5 star rating. The solar array is cleverly positioned to allow for capture of solar rays at various angles. (Assuming there are no natural blockages in the.sun's path....trees, roof overhangs, etc). Unfortunately our Michigan weather with single digit temps these past two weeks have had a limiting effect on charge retention and charging input. However daily checks of the battery status indicates that charging has taken place and I am maintaining a charge level of 70% in spite of a lot of motion activity and the cold weather. I do not hesitate to recommend this to anyone who Wants to Supplement a wireless connection.

Pros: Design, installation, and efficient charging in spite of frigid weather conditions

Cons: None

Does not keep up with charging need

Crutchfield customer from Pottsboro, TX on 1/20/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Looks nice. Easy to install, but even here in Texas, it does not keep up with the charging need. On a nice sunny day the ring doorbell classic continued losing charge even with setting set to mimnum.

Direct Sunlight

Orlando from Cypress, TX on 1/8/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Unless you can install the charger in a place where the it will receive more than 3 hours of direct sunlight per day, do not buy it.

Pros: If the charger is in direct sunlight, this is for you.

Cons: shade is not a friend of this charger.

Great addition to the Ring family!

Shawn from Pueblo, CO on 12/3/2018

Great item to keep the battery charged on the Ring Video Doirbell! No more taking it off and charging it! Mounting holes match up with existing Ring mount, so very easy to install. Crutchfield order and delivery were great. I will continue to be a Crutchfield customer for life!

Pros: As long as the sun shines it makes the Ring video doorbell that much better. Always charged!

Cons: None

Product Research

Features

Overview: This Solar Charger is designed for the original Ring Video Doorbell. Its built-in solar panels keep your Video Doorbell charged. The weather-resistant Solar Charger also doubles as a secure mounting bracket. The Solar Charger comes with the hardware for mounting it to most hard surfaces, including brick and stucco.

Note: This Solar Charger is not compatible with the Ring Video Doorbell 2.

Solar Powered Charging: The Ring Solar Charger features three built-in solar panels - two 4-3/4" panels along the sides and a 2-3/8" panel across the top. These solar panels have a power rating of 0.56 watts and 5.6 volts DC. The panels require a few hours of direct sunlight every day to ensure the original Video Doorbell is adequately charged.

Installation: The Ring Solar Charger installs to most flat surfaces. Self-tapping screws are included for mounting the charger to an external wall. Wall anchors (included) are required if you are mounting the charger to a hard surface, such as brick or stucco. Prior to installing the original Video Doorbell, you will need to plug in the charger connector to the doorbell's Micro USB port.

Q
I just installed a ring video doorbell. The current of the existing hardwired bell appears to be insufficient to charge the ring battery. Is it possible to supplement that with a ring solar charger as an addition?
[ Leon  Jan 05, 2019 ]

A
No, you must use one or the other. The solar charger with your standard battery pack will work. Don't mix power sources.
[ James  Jan 11, 2019 ]
A
If your existing system is insufficient to hard wire the ring to, then just use the solar charger alone. I would not use both because one is alternating current and the other is direct current, and as an engineer I foresee you frying your ring doing that.
[ David  Jan 09, 2019 ]
A
I had the same problem and got the solar charger about a month ago. At this point, I would say it makes very little difference. I live in Rochester, NY and we have cold weather, which reduces the ability of the battery to charge, AND we have cloudy skies alot of the time. I think if you lived somewhere warmer and sunnier you'd have better luck. I am hoping that in a few months we will start to feel a difference.
