If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering how to get your Ring Doorbell off to charge. Here’s a quick and easy guide on how to do just that! First, locate the small black power button on the back of your Ring Doorbell.

Once you’ve found it, press and hold the power button for about 5 seconds. You’ll know the device is off when the light on the front of the doorbell turns from white to red. Now that your Ring Doorbell is off, it’s time to charge it up!

To do this, simply connect one end of your USB charging cable into the port on the back of the doorbell, and then plug the other end into a power outlet. Make sure that the outlet you’re using is rated for indoor use; outdoor outlets can sometimes cause damage to electronic devices. Once your Ring Doorbell is plugged in and charging, you’ll see a white light on the front of the device.

This light will turn green once the battery is fully charged, which usually takes around 4-6 hours.

  • Unscrew the doorbell from the mount
  • Remove the faceplate of the doorbell
  • Take out the battery and connect it to a charger
  • Once the battery is charged, reattach it to the doorbell and screw it back onto the mount

How Do I Take My Ring Doorbell off to Charge?

Assuming you have the Ring Doorbell (1st generation), there are four small screws on the back of the device. Two are above the battery compartment and two are below it. Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove these screws and pull off the faceplate.

There will now be exposed wires. You can simply unplug the doorbell from its wire harness to charge it or to replace the battery. To charge your Ring Doorbell, you will need to connect it to a power source using the micro USB port on the back of the device.

Once it is connected, you will see a solid white light on the front of your Ring Doorbell indicating that it is charging. It typically takes around 4-5 hours to fully charge your device. If you need to replace your battery, we recommend using a lithium ion 3.6 volt battery with 1700mAh capacity or higher.

To do this, first disconnect your Ring Doorbell from its wire harness and then open up the battery compartment by pushing down on the tab located underneath where the faceplate was attached and sliding it off. Remove any existing batteries and insert new ones making sure that they are facing in the correct direction (the positive end should be facing up).
