Solar panel compatibility

Has anyone used the solar panel with the Wyze Pan Cam? The website says the solar panel is recommended for the Wyze Cam Outdoor in the description of the solar panel. But then there’s a recommendations tab and the Pan Cam is listed there. I just want to make sure it will work with the Pan Cam before buying it.

It won’t work. Even if you installed a battery between the Pan Cam and Solar panel, the draw of the cam exceeds the output of the solar panel.

This panel?

Other things unrelated to the Solar Panel are listed there, also. I think you should interpret that as a marketing tab, because it leads with “You May Also Be Interested In…”.

Both the screenshot that @Antonius shared and the Wyze Support article indicate the Solar Panel’s limited camera compatibility:

Understood. Thanks for the help. I’m glad I asked before ordering it. Thanks again.

Yes, that’s the one. I should have looked at the specs before posting my question. As everyone has said, it tells you right in the description it doesn’t work with the Pan v3. Thanks for the help.

Gotcha. Thanks for clarifying. That does make sense. It is a marketing tab, not a compatibly list. I appreciate your help.

You’re welcome. I totally understand how that can be confusing when the information is presented the way it is, especially if you’re using the small-screen format of the app.
