With normal use, your Ring Video Doorbell’s battery will last between 6 to 12 months. The battery may deplete faster if your Ring is capturing a large amount of motion events every day. The Ring app will notify you when the battery is getting low.
Charge your Ring Doorbell fully before setting it up
Ring products are charged with common micro-USB cables from any USB power source. If you're using a USB wall charger, the amperage of the charger will affect charging time. Your Ring Video Doorbell will take around five hours to fully charge when connected to a 2.1-amp charger (usually marked 2.1a) and around ten hours when connected to a 1-amp charger (usually marked 1.0a).
To charge your Ring Doorbell, follow these steps:
- Remove your Ring Doorbell from its mounting bracket by removing the two security screws on the base of the doorbell and lifting it up and away from the wall.
- Connect any micro-USB charger to the charging port on the back of the doorbell.
- Your Ring Doorbell is fully charged when the ring around the doorbell shines blue.

If the battery in your Ring Doorbell had fully depleted prior to charging, it may be necessary to manually reconnect it to your Wi-Fi network. To check if your Ring Doorbell has reconnected to Wi-Fi, press the front button on the device. If your Ring Doorbell plays the normal sound, but you do not receive a notification on your device, it has not reconnected to Wi-Fi.
If your Ring Doorbell has not reconnected to Wi-Fi, reconnect it by visiting the Device Health screen in the Ring app, and selecting Reconnect to Wi-Fi.
