How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.41 Released
Hello, I use a Reolink GO PT 4G camera with a solar panel, but half the year the sun is so far down in the sky, that it is not charged from the sun. I have 230V power nearby. Can this camera be constantly charged with 5V from the power supply, or will the batteries then be destroyed? Can I possibly solve the problem with the power supply charging the camera x number of hours per day? if so how many hours should be left for charging? If not, what other solutions can you suggest?
@roars_516256824365201 A Lithium-ion battery cannot be overcharged because the charger includes overcharge protection. Charging will automatically stop when the battery reaches 100% capacity. But if the battery is left charging constantly, this can cause damage that will reduce the performance and service life of the battery. So the best option is to have a socket Programmable Switch Timer (less than 20 bucks) and program it to switch on say twice a week depending on how much the battery drains.
@joseph-chircop_497308027822318 Thank you very much for the very quick reply. I will create a solution that works as you describe. Thank you
