Can a Single Solar Panel Charge Multiple Cameras?
A single Reolink Solar Panel can only charge one battery-powered camera. It cannot charge multiple cameras simultaneously, even with a splitter.
Can I Use Reolink Solar Panel with Other Devices?
Reolink Solar Panel can only charge Reolink rechargeable battery-powered cameras. Please refer to this article to check the models.
It is not suggested to use Reolink Solar Panel to charge other devices with a USB interface. The output voltage, current, and power of the Reolink Solar Panel are configured to match the parameters of Reolink battery-powered cameras so that they can work together efficiently. Charging other devices with Reolink Solar Panel may cause low charging efficiency or damage other devices' service life.
Can I Charge the Battery via a 3rd Party Solar Panel?
Reolink Battery Powered cameras are designed to work with Reolink Solar Panel, so it's not suggested to charge Reolink batteries via 3rd party solar panels and we can't ensure that 3rd party solar panels will charge Reolink batteries fully.
If you still want to use 3rd party/other brands' solar panels, please choose 5V/9V 2A solar panels. Over 9V 2A, the battery will be overcharged and easily to be damaged.
How Many Solar Panels Can I Use with a Single camera?
One single camera could only be charged by one Solar Panel at a time. Reolink battery-powered cameras(Argus 2; Argus Pro; Argus 2E; Argus 3; Argus 3 Pro; Reolink Go; Argus PT; Argus Eco; Reolink Go PT; Reolink Go PLus; Reolink Go PT Plus) cannot be charged by multiple Solar Panels simultaneously, even with a splitter.
How Long Will it Take to Fully Charge the Battery by Solar Panel?
1. If your Reolink Solar Panel is working under good weather conditions with efficient sunlight and fits the working temperature and humidity standard, normally it will take 3~4 days to fully charge the battery of your cameras with the camera off or working in standby mode.
2. If your Reolink Solar Panel had obstacles such as blockings from shades of trees or buildings, dust, etc or the weather was gloomy or cloudy, rainy or the temperature was beyond -10℃~+55℃(14°F~131°F), the efficiency of generating energy of Reolink Solar Panel will drop drastically. The time taken to fully charge the battery will be largely extended.
Can I Use 3rd Party Solar Sanel with Reolink Battery-powered Cameras?
For now, only Reolink rechargeable battery-powered cameras can be charged by Reolink Solar Panel.
It is not suggested to use the third Party Solar Panel to charge Reolink battery-powered cameras. The output voltage, output current, and power of the Reolink Solar Panel are configured to match the parameters of Reolink battery-powered cameras so that they can work together efficiently. If you charge Reolink battery-powered cameras with a 3rd Party Solar Panel, it may cause low charging efficiency and shorten the life of the camera's battery.
How Many Extension Cables Can I Use with a Single Reolink Solar Panel?
You can add up to 2 extension cables to the Solar Panel, and the total length can reach up to 13 meters (43 feet).
The cable length of the Reolink Solar Panel is 4 meters (13 feet). If it is not long enough for you, you may consider purchasing our Solar Panel extension cable (4.5 meters/15 feet).
Extension cables from other brands are not recommended with the Reolink Solar Panel as the voltage drop might be uncontrollable. If there is a short circuit in the cable, irreversible damage might be caused.
