Battery and charging issues with stick-up cam

I have a few issues with these. I recently purchased 2 Stick-Up Cams with the solar panels.

First, the batteries take 7+ hours to charge.

Second, the batteries don’t last an entire evening. (More about that later)

Third, the solar panels don’t get them to a full charge, even when sunny.

As far as the second point goes, how do I STOP the cameras from recording EVERYTHING, motion or not? Now, there will be a blue notification in the playback showing motion was detected, but it has video for the entire time. I assume that’s why the battery dies overnight. It is recording even when there is no motion. How do I turn that “feature” off? If the battery dies during the night, and the panel doesn’t charge it completely during the day, the things are useless, and a waste of time.
