Originally, it seemed to work, the Ring 3 solar panel. It showed as ‘connected’ in the App and gave me a few percent increase per day. However, my main Ring 3 doorbell unit then became faulty (button press did not always trigger, faulty button I suspect), so I am in the process of returning it.
Since changing the Ring 3 doorbell unit, the Solar Panel does not charge at all. It is located on a south facing door, in direct/bright sunlight… but nothing at all power wise.
I have tested the panel terminals with a multimeter, whilst it shows 5.5V it generates zero (0) amps - so no power - this suggests the solar panel is faulty. So I’m going to return this now for a replacement to Amazon.
As I mentioned, it is located on a south facing door, in direct/bright sunlight, no clouds, at midday, with the panels visibly receiving sun… but nothing at all. Another small panel I have in the same location, as a test, has no problem generating power.
Bit annoying that I seem to have had a faulty Ring3 unit (faulty button) and now potentially the solar panel as well.
