Option To Pause Charging Of WCO With Solar Panel At 80%

Many devices have the option to pause charging when they get to 80%, until a bit before you use it. This is because battery’s last longer when they are stored at 80% (I think it was 80, could be something else).

Anyway, with the Wyze solar panel the cam stays at 99-100% always, and I’m worried about battery health.

An option in the solar panels settings could pause charging when the battery reaches 80%.

Not entirely sure it’s possible hardware wise, but if so that would be great!

Update: I just tried turning off solar panel charging via the Accessories > Wyze Solar Panel > Installed > Powered by Solar Panel setting. It does not appear to stop the charging. All three of my WCO still show the lightning bolt icon next to the battety icon and charge level. Argh!

I agree. I find that my 3 Wyze solar panels keep my 3 outdoor cams charged at 100 percent most of the time. This can’t be good for their batteries.

I know there is a manual switch in the accessories settings to turn off charging from the panel, but this will require manual tracking of the battery charge level and a crystal ball (to know when the sun will be out) to know how low to allow the charge to drop before re-enabling solar panel charging.

It would be much better to have a set it and forget it option.
