It's been a week and mine *still* doesn't tell me that a solar panel is plugged into it. However, it absolutely *is* charging the camera battery -- the battery level has gone from the low 40% range to 90% (I checked it just now). That's excellent, in my opinion, considering the solar panel only gets about 3 hours a day of direct sunlight between the trees and the roof blocking much of the sky.. So, despite the fact that the app is still telling me "plug in a solar panel to extend your battery life," I'm overall happy with it because it is actually charging the battery like it should.

I bought two solar panels for two of my Ring Stick Up Cam Battery cameras... The boxes I received said "compatible with Spotlight Cam Battery only," but the plug looked like it would fit into the Stick Up Cam Battery camera, so I plugged one of them in. (BTW, when I ordered them, they *did* say "compatible with both Spotlight Cam Battery and Stick Up Cam Battery, so I don't know why the boxes are saying something different.) Anyway, he camera's battery *is* charging -- it's gone up 11% (from 48% to 59%) since last night, so I know the solar panel is working. However, in the Ring app on my iPhone, it still tells me "Solar Panel Status: Add a Ring solar panel to Extend Battery Life." So how long is it supposed to take until it realizes that there's a solar panel plugged into it? Or will it not realize this because they sent me the wrong solar panel? Thanks, L.
