mm plug specs on Solar panel plug

What are the exact mm size specs for the plug on the end of the solar panel wire (that plugs into the camera)?

Thanks!!

Re: mm plug specs on Solar panel plug

Hi @jeff22 - I believe it is a 13- ft (3.96 m.) cable.  Let us know if this helps!

Re: mm plug specs on Solar panel plug

Let me try again, 'cause the replies are looking rather off-the-mark.  

The newer Ring solar panels (that power the newer spotlight cams and stick-up cam have a cord that you plug into the camera device to keep the camera devide's battery charged.  The PLUG at the end of that cord is a small barrel-type plug.  Barrel plugs are specified by the outer diameter of the metal part of the plug and the inner diameter of the 'hole' in the center/end of the plug.   Q:  What are those two diameters sizes, in mm?

1. Hopefully Ring coders will provide the name of the person replied to and show that name in the reply right off the bat followed by the name of person replying.

2 I hear you regarding specific spec requests for the Solar panel. I dunno
I've asked for the length of the cable from panel to stickup camera.

No one has replied to date: my hunch is no one knows how to find specs (dated 191121_1806PST)

Re: mm plug specs on Solar panel plug

I did a lot of research trying to find this product and this is what I found. Ring says that it does not make an extension cable and does not support or recommend this cable, but I bought it anyway and it works fine!

DC Power (3.5mm x 1.35mm) Male to Female Camera Extension Adapter Cable 10FT (White or Black)
Manufacturer: Wasserstein
Type: DC Power Connector
Cable Length: 10 ft.
Connector A (Male): Coaxial DC Power (3.5x1.35mm)
Connector B (Female): Coaxial DC Power (3.5x1.35mm)
Model: DC Cable

I bought 2 of these cables at $4.55 USD each and extended the original Solar Panel cable 20 extra feet for a total length of 33 feet and I have had no problems. The included solar panel DC cable length is 13-ft. (3.96-m.) with a weatherproof barrel connector manufactured by Wasserstein. I can’t recall the item/part number, but if you do a search on the description below, you should be able to find it.

By the way, Ring Support couldn’t tell me the size of the barrel connectors (they are 3.5x1.35mm (Male - Female). Hope this helps!!!
