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 2. If you have Ring Video Doorbell, you'll need this one.

Product Research

Features

Overview: This Solar Charger is designed for the Ring Video Doorbell 2. Its built-in solar panels keep your Video Doorbell 2 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 original Ring Video Doorbell.

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 0.35 watts and 6.9 volts DC. The panels require a few hours of direct sunlight every day to ensure the Video Doorbell 2 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. Machine screws for attaching the Ring Doorbell 2 to the charger are also included. Prior to installing the Video Doorbell 2, you will need to connect the wires from the charger to the screw terminals on the back of the doorbell.

Q
Is the solar charger compatible when an angle bracket (wedge) is also installed? What order should they be installed? Wedge first or solar charger first?

A
I would think wedge first then solar charger. I'm not using the solar charger so it's wedge then Ring 2 unit. Make sure the wedge kit is compatible to the Ring unit you're using.
[ Robert  May 20, 2020 ]
A
Yes its possible to use mounts and solar charger!
[ Giovanni  May 20, 2020 ]
A
No, you cannot. The mounting holes are not compatible.
[ Lester  May 20, 2020 ]

Wedge first

Q
Have solar charger for ring doorbell 2 for a week, but it is not charging. Anyone else having this problem? It's been cold here in Staten Island, NY and I am hoping as springs comes in that the warmer weather will help. It has lasted one day short of a week since I installed it. I just swapped out the battery for a fully charged one.

Q
Are you sure that this solar charger is for the Ring Doorbell 2? The ring doorbell 2 does have a usb port on the back of the unit. It has 2 screens that you connect the solar charger to the ring 2 unit.
