outdoor cam with battery connected to Wasserstein solar panel

Community Member

Now that my outdoor cam is connected to a Wasserstein solar panel, I am keeping in on 24 hours a day.  I live in a very sunny place, so it should get plenty of sun most of the year, but I will also have rain/cloudy days without much sun.   When I check the battery status, it just says "solar" and has the infinity symbol.  Since the cam is on all day, how can I know if the battery is being drained too much because the solar panel can't keep up.




We have the battery camera plugged in to household current with the optional power cable. We can't see the battery level either, unless we unplug the camera temporarily.

Our battery has remained charged for over 2 years; we've checked maybe a half dozen times in 2 years by unplugging the camera briefly, and it's always been between 77% and 100%.

But some customers in this forum seem to have had challenges with the solar panel.
