Model: Tapo A200  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version:

It's our mission to always look at ways to make our products sustainable. To come out of these efforts, TP-Link is launching our first solar charging panel, Tapo A200. Tapo solar panel captures free, clean solar energy and provides a non-stop power supply for the Tapo battery-powered cameras to ensure they protect our customers all year round.

 

Tapo A200 mainly works with Tapo C420/C400/C425 and subsequent shipments of battery cameras to allow for the security cameras to be constantly charged with energy. You don't need to frequently take down the battery or camera for charging. Let's take a quick look at its appearance and features that you may be interested in.

Highlighted Features

 

Non-Stop Solar Power: Captures free, clean solar energy and provides a non-stop power supply for your Tapo battery-powered cameras (Tapo C425, Tapo C420, and Tapo C400) to ensure they protect you all year round.

 

Up to 4.5W Charging Power: Made of premium monocrystalline silicon cells, Tapo A200 captures plentiful solar energy and provides a continuous power supply efficiently.

IP65 Weatherproof: Offers excellent waterproof and dustproof performance for outdoor scenarios.

 

4m Charging Cable: Offers flexible installation with a 13 ft/4 m charging cable.

Note:
1. Actual charging power may vary based on installation location, weather conditions, temperature, and other environmental factors. 
2. The suitable temperature for Tapo A200 is -20℃~45℃. The working temperature range for battery charging should be maintained at 0℃~45℃. 

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

1. How much sunlight is normally needed each day to keep my camera working fine?

Only 30min of standard sunlight every day can keep your Tapo battery-powered cameras (Tapo C420,  Tapo C400, and more ) working around the clock.

Note: 30min of standard sunlight time is based on standard environmental conditions (1000W/m2, 25℃, AM1.5) and specified working scenes (up to 100 events triggered per day). The actual required time of sunlight may vary.

 

2. How should I install and use Tapo A200?

Watch this video to install and use the Tapo A200: How to Install Your Tapo Solar Panel (Tapo A200).

 

3. Can the Tapo A200 work with non-TP-Link battery-powered devices? 

It's not recommended, since we can't promise the devices' performance when working with Tapo A200.

 

Where to Buy

  @NguyenKhoi Hi, take the Tapo D230S1 as an example, the Tapo A200 can power the doorbell's battery directly when the battery is not inserted into the doorbell. However, it can't power the doorbell when the battery is inserted since the doorbell does not have a micro USB port to connect the Tapo A200.

  @Solla-topee I was wondering if it is possible, or will be possible, to charge two cameras with one panel in parallel? 

e.g., when having two C420 on a corner of a building to cover both sides of the building and only having one Panel on the sunnier side of that corner and use a Y-cable or micros usb splitter to plug into the batteries of both cameras from the same panel?

  @Skyndrome 

Hi, 
One Tapo A200 is designed to provide a non-stop power supply for one Tapo battery-powered camera, and it's not recommended to be used to power more cameras.

Best Regards
