Looking for specific info?

Can you buy a longer cord for it

No, the cord is directly attached to the panel and the other end is a special 90 degree micro usb connector that connects to the ring doorbell. However the cord is the longest i have seen among the competitive solar panels.

How am i supposed to mount my ring doorbell back up with the charger installed on the back? If anyone has any videos of theirs that would be great


great question! Physically installing and connecting your ring video doorbell solar panel to your video doorbell is a simple process. You should complete the setup of your ring video doorbell in your ring app, before physically installing the ring video doorbell solar panel.

Here are the physical installation steps:
attach solar panel plug to wire spacer and ring video doorbell mounting bracket
take the free end of the charging cable and place it on top of the mounting bracket, with the plug piece in the center of the rectangle bracket.
Attach the wire spacer and ring video doorbell mounting bracket to the wall
plug in the ring video doorbell and attach to bracket.
Plug the free end of the charging cable into the back of the ring video doorbell and click into place.

If you have any further physical installation questions, please visit our helpful support site for more detailed instructions.

Does this work on a wireless ring 3+ doorbell?

It will have its own panel. Select it through the ring app to ensure right panel

How long is the cord?

20 ft

Is this water proof?

The solar panel is water proof just don’t dip it in water

Is this solar panel compatible with the ring indoor outdoor battery camera with two way talk

I believe it is but not 100% sure

Do you have any that work with ring 2 and 3 with a 20 feet cord

The ring 2 solar panel had a 20 ft vord

Adapter too large i cannot attach ring to mount. Is there a different mount so there is space behind the ring for the adapter to attach?

The adapter goes attached to the camera, the solar panel goes attached to base.

Ours did not come with the wire spacer. Can we get wire spacer sent to us since we already mounted the solar panel?

Mine had the wire spacer. But i think you can order a different piece with the spacer.

I have a ring 2nd generation rechargeable video doorbell, will this solar work with it? Also what spacer do i need?

I got the 2020 release ring video doorbell, not sure if it’s the same. As long as it has the usb micro b connector in the back of your doorbell this should work. You can tell if by the first two pictures if that connector will plug into your doorbell. The package also comes with a spacer for the wire. So you will have to remove your current mount, add the spacer, and then put the current mount on the spacer. Works pretty well, my doorbell is at 86% and it’s been cloudy and raining the last few days.

Hope this helps

Does this work with ring doorbell 3?


great question! No, this particular model of the ring solar panel will only work with the ring video doorbell (2020 release). There are two versions of the solar panel for ring video doorbells. The version with a micro-usb cable is compatible only with the ring video doorbell (2020 release).

The version with a fork connector is only compatible with the following devices:
ring video doorbell 2
ring video doorbell 3
ring video doorbell 3+
ring video doorbell 4

thank you for taking a moment to inquire about this new accessory. If you have any additional questions, please reach out to us on our ring community forum, which can be found on our website.

Thank you,

Will this work with ring 2nd generation?


Is incandescent light enough to keep a charge ? I want to istall the solar panel in my hallway.

No, it has to be charged by the sun. However, maybe if you have a light bulb that can mock sunlight, that might work.

Mi ring no tiene por donde pasar el cable de adentro hacia afuera está todo cerrado no tiene un orificio para pasar el cable … Que puedo hacer …?

@richboop: their question-
“my ring has nowhere to pass the cable from the inside to the outside, everything is closed, it does not have a hole to pass the cable… What can i do?“

Will this ever charge to 100%? Mine stopped charging at 75% even with it being sunny all day yesterday

You may have to check your settings. One of the settings is to only charge the battery to 75%. If you have this setting active you will want to turn it off.

How to connect a solar panel to a door ringer 2020

In the one, i ordered you ran the chord and attached the plug to the back of the ringer. There are some where you connect wires to two screws.

My ring has nowhere to pass the cable from the inside to the outside, everything is closed, it does not have a hole to pass the cable… What can i do?“

I had that same issue so i had to go the wireless router way with no wire connection required because i would have had to drill holes, run wires, etc and i am renting was even if i wasn’t i am not about all that so hopefully you haven’t gone beyond your return date and you can return it or possibly sell it to someone. Wireless is the way to go and you just have to connect to your wi-fi and purchase a solar panel so you never ever have to worry about charging the battery.

Can solar panel for doorbell cable be shorten

Probably not, as if the cord is cut, it may not work properly after patching the cord for use.

Is there a film on the solar panel i have to remove to optimize the best charging?

Mine didn’t come with any film other than the one on the battery

Will it work using the wedge?

This will not work with a wedge.

Works pretty good

The ring solar panel was easy to install and so far i have not had to charge the battery in my ring doorbell since i installed the solar panel the end of july. Before i got the solar panel i was getting pretty upset with my ring doorbell because it seemed like i had to charge it almost every 45 days if i had my ring set-up the way i wanted it (motion sensitivity max, package sensitivity max, motion frequency-frequently, live view on, recording length 60 seconds, and audio streaming and recording -on) but now my battery is usually between 85-100%. The lowest i’ve ever seen it go is 74% when it’s been cloudy out for several days and i’ve had a bunch of alerts. But then it jumps right back to 100% the next day. So i’m glad i bought it. When i installed it i decided to install it on the front of my house near the top of my front stairs instead of by my roof because i read that it’s good to keep the panel clean and free from snow and ice. So where’s it’s installed, it’s above my front bushes and away from my window awning so there’s no shadows hitting it but it’s low enough for me to clean it once a month and be able to clean any snow that may get on it this winter.. The only thing i don’t like is that the base can’t turn sideways to follow the winter sun. So i’ll have to see what it will be like this winter since it only moves up and down and i can’t tilt it towards the south at all.

Add life to your exterior ring products

We got got the solar panel to extend the battery life of our ring flood lamp and camera and it works great we do not have to change the battery to charge in our home as frequently but if you live in an area like i do that is 75% cloudy during the year you will need to charge the battery with a dc outlet but it is worth the investment i would recommend it so easy to use it is not a huge panel it is approximately 10 x6 but check me on that it comes with its own holder screws everything you need to attach it to an area where you get the optimum sun exposure

Perfect for my door bell

Awesome solar panel for my ring doorbell, i never buy another garbage aftermarket just wasting money, the original ring is great

5Expert Score
Well worth the money!

Super easy to install. Before having this, i was having to charge my ring doorbell about every 14 days or so and now i’ve had this solar charger for about a month and the battery level has increased 20% and stays almost fully charged. No more unscrewing my doorbell multiple times a month and being without it for 8 hours or overnight without video. If you don’t have a hardwired ring, then this is the next best thing. We will see how it does in the winter months when the sun isn’t out as much but i’m definitely happy with this purchase.

If i could do it anyone can.

This was the 2nd solar panel i purchased, the first one was the incorrect panel. This one works great. I do not have to ever worry about charging my ring alarm again. Worry free, who wouldn’t want something like that.
All you have to do is plug it in on the back of the ring in the charge slot and your done.

Works as described.


ring customer service worked with me at great lengths to fix this issue. In the end the issue persists. From what i can tell, the ring v2 only starts charging when the battery drops down to 74%, then charges back up a few percent. It never charges to full.

It seems that it is a firmware setting in the doorbell that controls the soc. This would be easily fixed with an update.

The solar panel seems to work fine.

I would recommend this product.

Original review:
doesn’t charge the battery. My setup receives 4-5 hours of direct sunlight on clear days. The battery discharges at ~1% per day. It seems to slow the discharge only. After 19 days, my battery is down to 77% charge from 100%.

Very disappointed.

Battery power dropped to 74% but it has now increased to 77%

The battery has dropped from 100% to 76% since i installed this solar panel, about a week ago. I am anxious to see if it continues to drop. I will be updating everyone if it does. Update: after reading other purchasers input on this solar charger, it doesn’t seem uncommon for the battery to drop to around 75% and hold at that percentage. Mine is now at the 75%, therefore, i will see if it continues to drop or stays around that percentage. As long as the doorbell doesn’t have to be removed for charging, i am not going to make a big deal out of it. (to be determined) update: 9/26/2022..the solar panel appears to be holding the doorbell power at 75% therefore, i have no problem with that. My goal was to not have to remove the doorbell for charging. I believe i have accomplished that goal with the solar panel. 9/27/2022: still holding @ 75%..i 9/28/2022:now back to 77%. It appears to be doing what i purchased it for. 10/4/2022….my final update: the battery in now back up to 79%

Very long cable, needs to come in multiple lengths or have a cable management system.

I figured this would keep my ring doorbell near a full (90+ percent) charge all the time, it doesn’t. It does however keep it in the 70’s. Still a better option than removing the ring to charge it.

They forgot the instructions but it’s easy

Basically like a plug and play. Just got it. We will see if it holds a charge.

Good investment!

Solar charger for ring doorbell. Glad i got this solar panel for my ring door bell. Since i live facing a busy street. It would go off alot and battery was going low fast. It has been a life safer. I don’t have to take the ring off to charge.

4Expert Score
I’ve never gotten it to 100% charge

So far the charge has stayed at 75% and the panel is in direct sunlight. I’m not sure why it can’t get to 100%, but it is nice to not have to recharge my ring, so far.

Does not fully charge bell

Great product, but it only charges the doorbell to 75%.

4Expert Score
Almost good, just ok.

I know a lot of people don’t want a random wire running up their exterior wall to a solar panel. Why the power cord doesn’t detach from the back of the solar panel is very odd. It could have been made with some very small waterproof connection points so you could customize the length and like me i have my ring installed on a brick wall so i ran the wire through the brick wall to hide the wire. I had two options: drill a hole big enough to fit the bizarre micro usb plug or cut the 20′ cable somewhere and feed that through the wall and resplice on the other side. I went with option two. It’s only two wires so if you have some heat shrink or a soldering iron just cut the wires and add or subtract what you want then reconnect.
