How long does it take to charge your Ring battery?
Ring Doorbells and security cameras are battery-operated and can be placed almost anywhere. We appreciate the portability of these battery-operated devices. They won’t work while the battery is being recharged, so you’ll need to know how long it takes to recharge a Ring battery.
A standard micro-USB cable is used to charge your Ring Video Doorbell (an orange one is included in your Ring box). Any USB power source, such as a computer, can be plugged into the micro-USB cable. It will take approximately 5 to 10 hours to fully charge your Ring Video Doorbell.
The amount of life left in the ring battery, the weather, and the amperage of the USB port or wall adapter you use to charge the battery all affect the charging time.
We’ve provided details on how each of the above factors influences the charging time to give you a better understanding of the Ring battery charging time. We’ve also included some pointers on how to charge your Ring battery effectively.
The battery in the original Ring Video Doorbell is not replaceable. The battery is charged by directly connecting the charging cable to the device. It takes 4–12 hours to charge the non-removable lithium battery in the Ring.
Time to Charge a Ring Battery
The time it takes for a Ring battery to fully recharge varies depending on the following factors:
- The battery’s remaining life expectancy
- The battery’s temperature and the temperature in your home
- The charging cable’s amperage is determined by the adapter’s or USB port’s amperage.
It will take longer to charge the ring battery if it is completely dead than if it has 20% remaining life. In the Ring app, you can check the current battery life at any time:
- On the app’s homepage, click on the device whose battery life you want to check.
- In the top-right corner, look for the battery icon.
- To see the battery life percentage, click the settings button above the battery icon.
If you change your Ring battery before the percentage drops below 30%, you can cut down on the amount of time it takes to charge.
Charging Speed of Ring Batteries
Because lithium batteries don’t hold the charge as well in cold weather, a ring battery may charge slower in colder temperatures.
After being brought inside, the battery for outdoor devices may continue to charge at a slower rate until it reaches room temperature. Try charging the battery on a warmer day to speed up the process.
Charging Speed of Ring Batteries
When plugged into a wall outlet adapter rather than a USB port on a computer, your Ring battery may charge faster. All wall chargers, however, are not made equal. Use a 2.1-amp wall adapter like this one for the fastest charging time.
How do I know when my smart Ring battery is fully charged?
If the ring light turns solid blue, your battery is fully charged. The ring light on ring doorbell 2 or ring doorbell 3 should be solid green.
You can also check the battery level of a Ring Doorbell using the Ring app at any time. Select the device in the Ring app and look for the battery icon in the upper right corner. When the battery in a Ring doorbell runs out, the Ring app will notify the user that it’s time to charge the device.
Rechargeable lithium batteries power the original Ring Doorbell and the Ring Doorbell 2.
These simple methods will allow you to check the battery level of your Ring Doorbell:
- On your smartphone or tablet, open the Ring app.
- Choose the doorbell option.
- In the upper right corner, look for the battery bar symbol.
When the battery is going low, the Ring app will give you notifications by phone and email. To guarantee you won’t miss the notice, make sure you have the Ring app’s push notifications turned on.
How often does the ring doorbell battery need to charge?
With normal use, the rechargeable battery can last months between charges. This is determined by a variety of aspects in your home’s surroundings, including the weather and the number of activities recorded.
Do I need to charge my smart ring doorbell if it’s hardwired?
Normal use will keep your Ring Doorbell charged if it is connected to an existing doorbell. If your Ring Doorbell isn’t hardwiring, you’ll need to recharge the battery on a regular basis.
What happens when the ring doorbell battery dies?
If the doorbell’s battery dies completely, you may need to re-add it to the Ring app. The lithium battery in the original Ring Doorbell cannot remove from the device. You’ll need to remove the complete gadget from its mounting bracket to charge the battery.
