I currently have the spotlight cam covering my backyard which has the solar panel fitted. I have recently bought the ring 2 solar charger to fit to my ring 2 device, however I have experienced problems in the last 36 hours knowing if my Ring 2 Solar Charger is actually charging or not.
The spot cam is fine as I can angle the solar panel directly towards the sky to get a better coverage and is working perfectly - a larger solar panel helps and it can be angled directly to the sun.
The problem with the Ring 2 solar charger is because the solar panels are smaller, plus you don’t have much control over if it is in direct sun or shade, which mine sadly is (not 100% shade) but not direct sun, so a better indication would be useful.
Would it not be possible to update the app to show a different icon or indication if the battery is charging?
Even if just a small lightning bolt?
Or change the power supply from battery to battery+solar
This way if for some reason the solar panel was not charging it will be reflected correctly in the app.
