This lithium battery-based Ring solar panel is designed to provide non-stop solar energy for the stick-up camera. The panel is mounted outdoors and is connected to the camera with a USB cable. With the panel’s capability of charging even during misty conditions, you can always keep track of what’s happening on your property when you are away. It’s simple to set up as most tools are included and you won’t have to worry about its charging potential as it charges quick.

Very Informative Video
What’s up guys! It’s Chris Majestic here with Majestechs. You remember a few months ago I did a review on the Ring Stick Up Cam. Today with me I have what’s called the Ring Solar Panel. This is going to be an accessory for the Stick Up Cam so we’re going to go ahead and check this thing out today so stay tuned. So if you haven’t already go ahead and check out the Stick Up Cam review I did a few months ago. I went into detail in that review. I’m not going to go into too much detail about the Stick Up Cam here but just really quickly. It’s basically a surveillance camera. They call it the Stick Up Cam because it’s battery-operated and it’s wireless, it’s going to connect to Wifi and you can put it wherever you want. The only real downside was that it didn’t have Live video on-demand. Most people would just expect to go on your phone to view the live video feed to see what’s going on. The Stick Up Cam wouldn’t allow that before. It would remain in standby mode until it sensed motion, then it would connect to Wifi, and then push the video. They did this to conserve battery life since a constant Wifi connection would put a strain on the battery. However, through a recent firmware update earlier this year Ring released Live View for the Stick Up Cam, and to address the possible issues with battery life, they introduced the Ring Solar Panel. So the solar panel is going to keep it constantly powered because it’s getting sunlight during the day and charging it at night, which allows you to have constant power so you don’t drain your battery. The price of the Solar Panel is a separate $49 so you’re looking at around $248 to get both of these together. Even though it is connected to Wifi now and you have Live View, the only downside is that it does take a little while for the video to pop up once you hit the Live View button. In my case, in most instances it took about 15 seconds, sometimes a little bit longer. So that’s something they’ll probably fix in the future but right now it does take a little while for it to come up so you have to be patient with it. As far as the design goes it’s a pretty basic solar panel design. It’s just going to come with a little slot for you to slide the mount into it and the mount is going to have a couple of screw holes for you to mount it to a wall. It also comes with a non-removable micro-usb cable that has a little rubber piece on the end to help make it weather-resistant. And just like the Ring Doorbell and the Stick Up Cam the Solar Panel is covered for theft. That was one of the major selling points for me, especially putting it somewhere where it can easily be reached. This is definitely a one-of-a-kind camera on the market here. It was already one-of-a-kind to begin with but now you can just put up the Solar Panel right along side it and you can put it wherever you want and not have to worry about it. You’ve got your Live View, you’ve got motion detection and it works really well. I have no major issues with it. Alright guys thanks for watching the video. Hopefully you found it helpful.
