Where can I buy replacement rechargeable batteries for my ring solar pathlights?
Hi @smartengrhome. The Ring Solar Pathlight has an 18650 Lithium-Ion Rechargeable Battery that can be recharged via a micro USB charger. You can find this information on the product page for the Solar Pathlight here as well. I hope this information helps.
Nitecore model NL1832 is what I’ve been using as a replacement for a couple weeks with no issues. The 18650 comes in different styles which can cause them to be different lengths. Flat top vs button top and unprotected vs protected. The battery from the factory appears to be a protected button top. This battery was the closest to the specs of the battery from Ring that I could find.
Is the Nitecore model NL1832 the same size as the battery that is provided by ring?
Yes, the NL1832 is the same size. A response in another thread said the NL1834 will also fit and has a little more power storage.

How on earth can you sell solar path lights and step lights but not have replacement batteries?? Lithium ion batteries are a wear and tear item, meaning they can only take so many charge/discharge cycles before they fall off a cliff. SELL THE BATTERIES RING! (Or provide unlimited warranty replacements!)
