How Long Do Ring Stick Up Cam Batteries Last?
The Ring Stick Up battery lasts around six months with extreme usage and around twelve months with lower usage. And It takes around 6 to 8 hours for you to fully re-charge the battery from 0 to 100%.

Alternatively, Ring sells Stick up Cam batteries separately, so if you’ve noticed that your battery health has degraded over time or you would just like to get a spare battery, that would be another option.
