I tested the solar-version of the device and the solar panel short circuit current indoors was only around 0.6mA which is not enough to really charge the battery. I moved it outside on the balcony and now it is charging and running perfectly. 

The white stuff in the image is just some trash to move the solar panel and the Thread Sensor Tag up and against the glass ;)
