What may affect the efficiency of Reolink Solar Panel？
Reolink Solar Panel may not be able to keep your camera fully charged on days that are snowy, cloudy, gloomy, or rainy or during periods of extensive use (frequent access or constant triggers).
External factors, such as shade, temperature, weather, and the amount of dust or debris on its surface, may also affect the effectiveness of the Reolink Solar Panel in generating electricity.
How to optimize the efficiency of Reolink Solar Panel？
The efficiency of the Reolink Solar Panel depends on several factors: average sun exposure, weather conditions, installation angle, and dust or debris.
To use your Reolink Solar Panel effectively, here are some suggestions for you.
1. Mount your Reolink Solar Panel in well-lit places and avoid locations like the shadow of trees, buildings, or other obstacles to ensure sufficient sunlight.
2. Adjust the direction of your Reolink Solar Panel to face due south (in the northern hemisphere) or due north (in the southern hemisphere) and tilt it to the appropriate angle according to your latitude to ensure maximum sun exposure.
3. Wipe the surface of the Reolink Solar Panel with wet tissue or cloth regularly to remove the dust and debris on its surface.
Does Reolink Solar Panel work in low temperature
The lowest operating temperature for Reolink battery-powered cameras is 14°F (-10°C). A low temperature will significantly slow down the chemical reaction of the cameras' batteries, making it difficult to be fully charged.
For the safety of your camera and the Solar Panel, please charge the batteries at temperatures between 0°C and 45°C (32-113°F) and do not use the devices if the temperature drops below 14°F (-10°C).
