Einleitung

Countless Ring Video doorbell Pros have failed to work as intended due to a faulty internal battery. The symptoms of this is usually a completely dead unit that will not respond to power or a unit that reboots unexpectedly, although there can be many other symptoms. Unfortunately, Ring doesn't sell the replacement battery and It cannot be found anywhere on the internet, so a generic 602025 3.7v Li-Po battery between 200mah and 300mah will have to be fitted. This guide will show you how to take the unit apart and replace the battery. As always, you can find the tools and parts you’ll need to complete this repair in the respective sections below.

  1. First, disconnect and remove the doorbell from the house. Make sure the breaker for the doorbell is switched off at the electrical panel.

    • Make sure the face-plate is removed since the screws holding the unit together are underneath it.

  2. Remove the four Phillips screws from the four corners of the device.
    • Remove the four Phillips screws from the four corners of the device.

    • Let the screws fall out by gently turning the unit over. Don't lose the screws!

    • It may take some force, but take it easy to not accidentally damage anything on the inside.

  4. After the back has been removed, you should now be able to see the inside of the unit.

    • Do NOT heat upp the battery to much or it may also explode, you need to be quick doing the soldering.

    • Remove the clear tape from the old battery.

    • De-solder the old battery circuit from the old battery.

    • You will need this circuit, so be careful not to damage it!

    • De-solder the battery circuit that comes with the new cell, and solder the battery circuit from the old ring battery to the new battery. This will convert your new cell to a cell compatible with the Ring's charging circuitry.

    • Make sure to observe polarities. The solder pad with the red wire next to it goes to the '+' poll on the battery, and the solder pad with the black wire goes to the '-' poll on the battery.

  12. After the necessary soldering has been done, carefully fold the battery circuit to where it is tucked into the battery.

This guide was very helpful for me and allowed me to save my Ring Pro. The only thing I would say it is missing is a better description of how to get the black connectors off the board (two of the orange circles). They are extremely fragile and must be dealt with carefully. The first one I removed shattered and cost me additional work during the reassembly. The important part I learn is to not apply any force to wires themselves (don’t lift from the cabled as described). I found the best way to get the connector off the board is with a very small knife slid under the connector. I followed underneath the wires with the blade to slide it under the connector. Once the blade is under the connector you can gently pry it up and it will be reusable. lifting from the wires caused my connector to fall apart.

This is the battery worked for me. basically you are looking for a 200mAh 3.7v cell.

Hi, glad this fixed the issue for you. I will try to fix the article with better instructions on removal of the connectors. I do believe, that using a knife could be dangerous.. electrically speaking. Believe it or not, the ring is still quite active when it appears dead. The battery in mine still had 3.5v on it. When the unit gets below 3.8, it cuts off, but still has plenty of power. If you use a knife, it will short the pins on the connectors and possibly destroy the electronics, especially if the battery hasn’t been unplugged. I do believe that there is a better way than pulling on the wires though.

Just edited, and I used your method, but used the plastic spudger instead of the knife.

I've found the old battery type is: FT60205P/300mAh 1,14Wh 3,8V 3C.

Was your's also this type? Because u use for the new battery a 3,7V with a capacity of 200mAh.

Hi Hendry,

The old battery from my Ring was also 300mAh 3.7V. The reason I replaced it with the 200mAh is I couldn’t find a 300mAh battery small enough to fit at the time of replacement. 200mAh or even 100mAh would probably do just as good since the ring is only powered for about 3 seconds on battery (while the circuit to the door bell chime is completed).

Hendry,

Did you find the exact battery that would fit in the ring pro?
