We have the Pro 3 Floodlight model and purchased the model VMA5600 solar charger. The panel can not keep up with the camera. (Yes  it is outside, yes it is in the sun, yes it is at 45 degrees, no, there is nothing blocking it)

 

We found we were changing the battery within 10 days. This means we will have to climb the ladder ever week or two to change the battery. Is there a stronger solar panel available? 

 

Thanks

Unfortunately, no.  If there is a nearby outlet, there is an outdoor AC charger you could use (25' cable).

How much video recording (minutes per day) is it using?  Note you'll need to disable activity zones to estimate this.

Also, how much is the spotlight on?
