I gave links for most the items in post above including solar panels, they are in blue…
Cables vary on connector types that come with panels, I will add those cable links to the post above.
Standard Crimp Lugs available at Auto parts stores, Amazon, etc… Will add Links too…
I use outdoor Low Voltage Lighting wiring which is UV-Resistant and can be buried, will add link
The solar system/battery outputs 12 volts and the 12 volt to 5 volt Micro-USB regulator I posted link to above must be used as camera runs on 5 volts ONLY.
There may be a voltage drop on long cable runs but the 12 volt to 5 volt Micro-USB regulator will work with as low as 9 volts on input and still supply 5 volts to camera. I have a camera on an 188 foot run of cable to the 12v to 5v Micro-USB regulator which works fine,
There is another way to power without solar also, which I will cut & paste from another post of mine:
You could also consider using “Low Voltage Wiring” and burying the wire from an A.C. power outlet (indoors) power supply to the cameras. Then use a 12 volt to 5 volt micro-USB regulator adapter and install to camera.
The power Supply mounts indoors but the cable to camera can be longer as the 5 volts is regulated at the camera. And Voltage drop due to cable length is not an issue as the regulator will work with as low as 9 volts input.
I have ran over 180 feet of 2 conductor cable to camera with this setup, use low voltage lighting wiring it can be buried, it is weatherproof and UV resistant.
Connect the 12v to 5v micro-USB regulator adapter to cable matching polarity ( +red -black ) along cable where a camera is needed if more than 1 camera just get a 12 volt adapter with more current (Amps) The Adapter regulator is weatherproof except the micro-USB itself but the boot on the V3 takes care of that.
Links below to several power supplies, 1 Amp for 1 camera, 2 Amp for 2 cameras, or 5 amp for 5 cameras,
choose according to your needs. The cable run can have multiple connections for cameras along cable.

This location originally had a V2 in an enclosure, the 12v to 5v adapter has been exposed to rain, snow, and heat of summer for over 3 years. Recently replaced V2 with a V3
Below is an event captured by this camera, note I don’t use IR as I get too many flying bug triggers.
