does hardwired to bell wires charge battery in ring 2?

Will attaching the ring 2 to existing door bell wires charge battery?

I don’t understand how it could, since doorbell wires only have one hot and one return to bell.

If it does charge will the power source change from battery to electric?


Hey @Kaptain. Hardwiring your Ring Doorbell should give it about a 10% trickle charge each day. You can learn more about this added benefit in our Ring Help Center Article here.

How does it charge?

There is only one hot wire coing into door bell and a return to chime?

If it says 97% charged how long should it take to 100% charged?


When I originally brought my Ring Video Doorbell by mistake I purchased a power charger.

I was wondering if I could connect the two wires to the doorbell connections
