Charging the Battery on Your Ring Video Doorbell 2

Question: How often do I need to charge the battery on my Ring Video Doorbell 2?

Answer: With normal use, your Ring Video Doorbell 2’s battery will last between 6 to 12 months or approximately 1,000 notification events. The battery may deplete faster if your Ring is capturing a large number of motion events every day. The Ring app will notify you when the battery is getting low. 

Question: How do I recharge my Ring Video Doorbell 2?

Answer: Your Ring Video Doorbell 2 is charged using a common micro-USB cable (an orange one is included in your Ring box). The micro-USB cable can be plugged into any USB power source such as a computer. Your Ring Video Doorbell 2 will take around five to 10 hours to fully charge depending on whether the USB cable is plugged into a USB port or into a wall outlet.

To charge your Ring Doorbell 2:

  • Remove the security screw on the base of the doorbell and lift the faceplate up and away from the wall.
  • Remove the battery by pressing the release tab.
  • Connect any micro-USB charger to the charging port in the battery.
    • Your battery is fully charged when the light on the battery shines a solid green.
  • Slide the fully charged battery back into the Ring Doorbell. 
    • There will be a click when the battery is secure.
  • After about 30 seconds (time for the Ring Doorbell 2 to start up) return the faceplate to the Ring Doorbell and secure it with the security screw. 

 

Question: I've recharged my Ring Doorbell 2 but the battery level in the app still says that it's low on power. What's going on?

Answer: The battery measurement inside your app is updated each time you press the front button on your Ring doorbell. Give your Ring Doorbell 2 a couple of test rings and the app should update.
