Argus Eco with solar panel
Michael Kuhlmann last edited by
I have a Argus Eco cam with solar panel. Everthing´s fine but the charging of the battery is a problem. Is the solar panel too weak to charge the battery? Every 2 - 3 weeks I have to charge the cam inside the home. The little LED on the back of the cam is ON when i connect the panel. Can you please give an advice?

@michael-kuhlmann_465692975284389 The winter months where i live don't help. But the solar panel definitely sustains the battery during warmer months. Li batteries just don't want to charge at cold temperatures.
The cold and cloudy weather may affect the efficiency of the solar panel. The low efficiency of the solar panel may also be caused by the high frequency of motion detection, making the battery drains too fast. You may need to use the adapter to charge the camera if the solar panel is at low efficiency.
