Removable battery - Doorbell 2nd generation ?

Is it possible to remove/replace the battery? All the referencees I’ve seen do not show the version with 2 security screws but only one screw which releases the faceplate.

Seems to me that I have to remove the whole device from the wall frame to recharge the battery.

True or false?

Hi @Castalla. The Ring Video Doorbell Generation 2 does not have a removable battery. Our Ring Video Doorbell 3/3 Plus are our models that have removable batteries. The only way to charge the Ring Video Doorbell Generation 2, is to move it from its mounting location and charge it. I hope this information helps

Hmm. You really ned to update your documentation to emphasise this. In fact, overall, your operatng instructions, etc. need a severe makeover where many features are unclear.

Hi @Castalla. The features and specifications for the Ring Video Doorbell Generation 2 can be found here. I will be sure to pass this along to the appropriate team, and mention your request to be more clear about the wording in this document. Thank you, as I’m sure this may help others in the future.

I wish to agree with the comment about misleading information vis a vis whether the Ring series 2 has a removable battery. I have purchased a spare battery because I read that the battery in this model is replaceable (which it ought to be) but is clearly NOT so I have wasted almost £20! Not happy

Hi @Mikelauro. It sounds like you may have 2 of our Ring Video Doorbells mixed up. The Ring Video Doorbell 2 does have a removable battery. This doorbell is also no longer available for purchase and has been replaced with the Ring Video Doorbell 3. The Ring Video Doorbell 2nd generation (2020 release) does not have a replaceable battery. To find out which Doorbell you have, take a look at this Help Center article here. I hope this information helps!

I’m really unhappy with my purchase of a ring doorbell (2020 release) the battery is not replaceable and I’m 76. I live alone and I’m not capable of removing the camera to recharge the battery. I would not have purchased this unit if I would have known the battery isn’t replaceable. What can I do to fix this. I have had this unit 4 days now

Hi @user15880. I would suggest looking at the return policy from where you purchased the Ring Video Doorbell from. If you are able to return it, you can purchase a doorbell that is better suited to your needs.
