Do you have Solar Panel that works with App Cam Solo+?
We have optional Solar Panel (SPS-01) that works with App Cam Solo+.
How long does it take the Solar Panel to charge the battery full?
The solar panel only has 2.5W output power, it takes about 20 hours to fully charged with good sunlight source, so it is recommended to charge the camera with a wall charger first and only use Solar Panel for long term power.
Why is the Solar Panel not charging the camera?
Heavy usage of your camera can drain the camera battery faster than the Solar panel can recharge it, especially with poor sun exposure. If you find that your Solar Panel is not charging the camera, please make sure that the Solar panel is pointed toward the sun and is not obstructed by trees, buildings, or other obstacles. the camera is not in temperatures below freezing and reduce your camera usage for a day or two and note your camera’s battery level.
Can the Solar Panel charge in low temperature?
The camera batteries may indicate low battery level in cold weather because their internal chemical reactions slow significantly at low temperatures.
Because of the kinds of batteries they use, the optimum charging temperature for the battery is between 0°C and 45°C.
