The battery seems to drop about 1% per day and it doesn't ever seem to go up, it gets about 4 hours of direct sunlight per day, the camera is in a spot where there is very little motion, it is there in case someone is trying to break-in, or to keep track of our guests for Airbnb. The video quality is great, and well have to see how it goes, I may update this review in a few months. Update: April 4th 2021 This setup made it through the winter in Ontario, Canada with no issues. It remained fully charged, and I had no issues with temperature, I was able to connect with the camera even on very cold days. I'm also impressed on how snow and rain, just slide right off the camera lens, and it always seems to give a great quality video. I believe that ring made some updates to the App to deal with some of the initial issues with the Solar Panel, and it now works very well.
