Eufy Solar Panel not Charging – What to do!

Discovering your Eufy Solar Panel isn’t charging can be a real headache, especially when you rely on it to keep your cameras powered and your home secure. But don’t worry, there are several steps you can take to troubleshoot and fix the issue yourself, saving time and possibly even money on technician fees.

Quick Fixes for Eufy Solar Panel Not Charging

  1. Check the Panel’s Placement: Ensure your solar panel is positioned to receive direct sunlight throughout the day. Obstructions like trees or buildings can cast shadows, reducing its efficiency.
  2. Assess Camera Power Settings: Inside the Eufy Security app, make sure to select the solar panel as the main power source under Camera Settings > Power Manager > Power Source​​​​.
  3. Update Software and Firmware: Outdated firmware can lead to performance issues. Update your Eufy camera and the app to the latest versions to ensure optimal functionality​​​​.
  4. Clean the Solar Panel: Dirt and debris accumulation can hinder the panel’s ability to absorb sunlight. Regular cleaning can maintain its charging capacity​​​​.
  5. Monitor Ambient Temperature: The panel operates best within a temperature range of 0-45°C. Extreme temperatures can affect its charging ability​​.
  6. Check USB Connection: Ensure the USB cable connecting the panel to your Eufy camera is securely plugged in. A loose connection can prevent charging​​.

Special Considerations

  • If your panel is still not charging after trying these steps, consider reaching out to the Eufy support team for further assistance. They can help diagnose the issue and recommend a solution, whether it involves a warranty claim or purchasing a new panel if needed​​.
  • Remember, each Eufy Solar Panel is designed to work with one camera only. If you’re looking to use solar panels for multiple cameras, you’ll need a separate panel for each​​.

By following these steps, you can usually resolve most charging issues with your Eufy Solar Panel, ensuring your cameras stay powered and your home remains secure. Always remember to keep the panel clean, correctly positioned, and the firmware up-to-date for the best performance.

They are the best solar company in Lagos, Nigeria for a reason. I enjoyed every bit of time spent working with them at my brothers Banana Island home. Absolutely the best!
