This guide is to show how to open the Ring Doorbell to replace the battery. This is only for the 1st gen ring doorbells as newer versions do not have a battery and require full time power.

  1. Start by removing the 8 screws. the 4 black ones are hidden by the aluminum plate.

    • assembly is pretty straight forward- just reassemble in reverse order- good luck!

    Just Google “575166 battery” … look under Images tab if you want to find/buy from China

This is one of the few products that it's rarely if ever necessary to replace a battery in, as the warranty will cover a rapidly draining or not-charging battery. I'm glad you didn't tear down your chime, too! ;)

Where can the battery be purchased?

Mike Menendez - 回复

My ring doorbell is a little over a year old and battery is draining very fast so needs to be replaced. Ring says it is out of warranty and solution is to buy a new ring doorbell for $180. Not a good solution in my opinion. I just spent another $50 for the solar panel option (which is only compatible with the first generation ring doorbell) and this does not help so now I have $230 into this doorbell. If anyone knows where a replacement aftermarket battery can be purchased, I would appreciate this info.

Please see my post below. I believe there is hope brother….

John Sanders -

On ebay they are selling this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Power-Supply-Ad...

However, if you have at home a surplus 9V + power supply lying around, wonder if this will work even if the battery is dead?

Please try and report.

Joseph Ki - 回复

Anyone have any luck finding a battery solution? mine died as well.. :(

Andrew Barron - 回复

The problem is that even when wired in, the Ring won’t work correctly without the battery. Mine just crapped out. Charged it inside to full and within a few days it’s dead again, even though it’s wired. I verified the power is still working so it’s definitely the battery. I can’t use live preview, as I’m presented with a message stating it can’t be used when the battery is low. Lame. I will NOT buy another Ring. This is my third failed Ring, three different models.

I’m dealing with a two year old unit that can’t hold a charge…I found this 575166 Lithium polymer battery: https://www.amazon.com/uxcell-2500mAh-Re...

Anyone know if this is the correct one? With two in parallel would assume you would need to wire them into the original connector.

Greg Hackenberg - 回复

My ring doorbell is 18 months old and the battery life only lasts about 6 weeks now. It’s been getting less and less with each charge and we hardly ever use it and motion is turned off! The company will not replace the product since it’s outside of the warranty period. Very bad customer service.

Any luck with the 575166 Lithium polymer battery on Amazon? I am about to buy one and try….

ray.smets - 回复

Here is the dimensions of the 575166 battery: 65 x 50 x 6.5mm / 2.56" x 1.97" x 0.26" (L*W*T) . Would two of them fit into the Ring Doorbell as a replacement for a bad battery?

William Hartzell - 回复

Not tried yet to replace, just opened mine and measured the dimensions of the original battery which is: 51x69x10.6mm

So I guess the two 575166 might work.

The original is marked as: Rechargable Li-ion Polymer, Model Nr B15169 , 3,75V 5000mAh 18.75 Wh

I found this battery in ebay. Dimension 68 x 50 x 5.0mm.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1pcs-3-7V-2500-...

2 pcs of this battery will nicely fit into Ring doorbell battery compartment.

Seller may able to customize to fix the connector.

Anyone know, what is the type of connector?

I saw in the picture, there are 5 pin, 2 red cables (+) and 2 black cables (-), but what is white cable connected to? Temperature sensor?

alexliu_aungkyaw - 回复

Good News. With the info from Alexliu I ordered 2 x “3.7v 2500mAh 505068 “ off eBay. They arrived in a short time and I pulled apart the door bell to install the new batteries.

The batteries I purchased came with a breakout PCB on the end of them. I left this board on both since it was well attached and moved the PCB from the original battery since it seems to have a few components on it over to the new 2x pack now wired in parallel . Managed to fit it all back with some Kaptop tape to snug up the PCB and the wires. Tricky part is to be careful with that connector.

It’s all working well now.

Mr covert -

Any luck with the replacement battery. Why can't Ring just sell the damm replacement Battery.

Dennis Wong - 回复

I’ve been having similar battery charging problems as everyone above. -> email that battery is almost out*** I went ahead and also bought the solar panels since I was frustrated about troubleshooting the proper power from the regular door bell system. So when I installed the solar panel and it didn’t work I was really upset!!! With the solar panel I noticed that when I plug ring into solar panel and don’t mount it; it charges. However, when I mount it in the solar charger mount something shorts out and it no longer charges….. Fix: sooo put some electrical tape (actual a little thicker tape with backing) on the ring metal connectors and plugged in and started charging off the solar. Mounted it and since it is not shorting out on metal contacts continues to charge. Problem solved and didn’t have to replace the battery!!!!! Happy so far.

Thanks for your support on this; quite useful. Anyhow, I have a related question: My Ring device is quite far from my wifi router, so I am getting above 70 RSSI (poor signal). I know installing a wifi repeater/amplifier may solve the issue, but was wondering if, considering we can easily open the Ring device, we could solder a thin cable to go out of the box for creating an external antenna. Looks like the thin black cable (you can easily see it at the left on Step 4 picture) is connecting to the device antenna. Any experience/comments/suggestions on this regard?

Hi Greg - I searched on 575166-0509 and found this battery… any good? https://www.amazon.com/uxcell-2500mAh-Re...

Anyone figure out if the Amazon 575166 lithium will work in the Ring?

Lisa Crispin - 回复

I was wondering if I was losing my mind. Was going to troubleshoot whether there was a problem with my wired power source because the original generation Ring I have continued to die quick deaths requiring a charge inside. Latest time it is dead dead, not just almost dead. Checking in to see if anyone had been able to confirm the numerous options proposed on this thread. Help?

Samson Chiu - 回复

Well further Googling revealed a possible temporary fix for me at least. Short the top row of four contacts (I used a paper clip that just happened to be on my desk at the moment) and woke the device right back up. It's alive again but will probably encounter the same charging issues even though I have my doorbell wired.

Samson Chiu - 回复

I was about to give up until I tried shorting those 4 contacts as you described. Thanks!

It seems like Mr. Covert is the only person in the above thread who’s actually replaced the battery using a known product, which he acquired from ebay based on another member’s suggestion. I might do the same, as my battery is also failing and I made the same error as another respondent who invested in a solar charger for a product that’s really obsolete at this point. I don’t know if I blame Ring for not selling replacement batteries for the thing because it requires disassembly and they have two more evolved versions (though they do still sell the original doorbell), but they really should warn people not to buy the Solar Charger expecting it to solve their problems if the battery is past its prime.

I was able to replace my battery by getting two of these:

https://www.newegg.com/p/14R-00FU-00343

and wiring them to the PCB that is connected to the old batteries. They look similar to ones others have posted from Amazon so those will probably work as well as long as the specs match. I had to de-solder the PCB/regulator off of the old and new batteries and then solder the new batteries to the old PCB. Be careful to match up the + and - on both sides. It was a bit of work, but so far it is working good as new. I would only recommend this replacement to someone with at least basic soldering skills.

holy diver - 回复

So I ordered this one as reference above -

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200...

I tested the capacity, it was about 1/2 of the printed 2500mAh.

Surprisingly, my ring doorbell’s battery had a whopping 4400mAh when I tested it. I suspect that the battery is still good but an issue with the charging circuit or the transformer that supplies the charging power.
