Picking the Correct Solar Panel for Your Environment

The Ring Solar Panel and Super Solar Panel are designed to provide power for charging the Ring Stick Up Cam and Spotlight Cam. Which product is right for you depends on two important factors:

  • Number of Motion Events per day: If your Ring device is in an area that detects more events every day than average (defined as 10+events per day) than your battery will drain faster and require more power or recharging more often.
  • Your Solar Evironment: Warmer climates and areas that get less rain and cloud cover will get more kW of solar energy per day than rainier or cloudier zones. In such areas, having a larger solar panel may be a necessity for powering your Ring device. 

To help you make your decision, the following chart will tell you which version of the Ring Solar Panel best fits your needs. 

  Less sunny environments (<4.9 kWh per square meter/day) Sunny environments (5.0 - 6.4 kWh per square meter/day) Very sunny environment (>6.5 kWh per square meter/day)
