I bought two solar outdoor ring cameras with solar panels. The battery was fully charged and the solar panels were plugged in. It was set in battery mode. About a week or so, it was telling if I wanted to go to wired mode? I thought that maybe if the solar panel was plugged in, maybe it considered that wired mode. So I switched them to wired mode and decided to do a little bit more with the ring. I decided to change it to taking snapshots, with 30 seconds. Figures that it would be ok, because it was in “wired mode” and that it was having constant supply of sunlight to keep the batter charged. Well that didnt last long. Withing 24 hours it went from 100% battery to about 6 percent. I decided to take off snap shops from 30 seconds and changed it to 5 minutes. We have had full son yesterday, and I thought it was working because the incon showed green which I thought meant it was charging. Well that didnt happen. I checked it this morning, and it shows the battery at 0%.
What is the deal? The solar power does not charge it very much? How much can someone expect a battery to powered in the day with full sun. Does the solar panel plugged in not really considered “wired mode”? Any feedback would could be appreciated. Thank you.
