How to Safely Change Out the Battery on a Ring Video Doorbell

  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Plastic pry tool
  • Replacement battery (if needed)

Powering Down

Before changing the battery, power down the Ring doorbell either from the app or by disconnecting the wiring/power source.

Removing the Faceplate

Use a plastic pry tool to gently remove the front faceplate. This exposes the battery compartment. Be careful not to damage the faceplate.

Removing the Old Battery

Locate the battery connector inside the compartment. Gently disconnect it, then carefully slide out the old battery. Properly recycle the depleted battery.

Inserting the New Battery

Align the new, fully charged battery with the connectors and slide it into place. Ensure it is securely inserted and oriented correctly.


Carefully replace the faceplate and reinstall any screws. Restore power to the device. Test to ensure it powers on and functions properly.
