A Comprehensive Guide To Your Arlo Pro Charging Issues

Who doesn't want to keep their homes protected? If you don’t already have a home security system, chances are you know someone who does. When considering the video surveillance system that you will deploy to protect your home (or even your office), there is a variety of decisions you need to make. For example, which system to buy, wired vs wireless, what picture resolution, what charger you will use, where you will install your cameras, and how to protect them.

Arlo Pro Charging Issues

The latest home security and smart home services make life easier and keep families safer. Among the most popular home security devices is battery powered, wireless Arlo Pro system. By comparing Arlo cameras, we found that these have a solid performance despite a number of charging and mounting issues that come with it. Among the charging issues that some homeowners face with Arlo Pro are the number of battery changes, the inconvenience of changing batteries and the need to buy additional back-up batteries.

Due to these challenges that Arlo Pro customers face, we would like to provide thoughtful solutions to keep your Arlo Pro cameras constantly charged and thus deliver continuous peace of mind at the greatest convenience.

Bought a 3 pack for my arlo 4 pros and only one charges at all. The other two do not work at all no matter where they are punted or how much direct sun they are getting.

I purchased four solar panels and from day one, they will not charge correctly, I get messages that say incompatible charger connected. When they do charge they never keep the battery at 100%, they drop down to 35% very quickly, I purchased these so I would not need to change batteries. I have even charged the batteries fully and then connected the panels hoping this would help but it does not. How can these not be working correctly?

I bought the 16ft outdoor charging cable for my Arlo pro 3 floodlight camera, but the Arlo doesn’t seem to recognize it as an outdoor cable. It charges it, but no video while it is plugged in outdoors. I get the same screen as I would charging it indoors.

Hi, I recently purchased a two pack wasserstein solar panel for arlo ultra. Unfortunately, only one panel is holding the battery charge. Both batteries were 100% when placed in the cameras and the solar panels were connected immediately. I can’t find any trouble shooting steps on your site. Do you have any recommendations? Thank you. Eric

Just purchased the Arlo Pro 3 with four cameras. Two batteries charged with no issues, the other two seem to be charging but “the percentage” indicator remains constant at 48% and 49%. The blue light blinks when attached to the cable and then stays on constant. I dont know what to think of this and I dont see any info that specifically deals with this issue. I think they are charged but the level of charge is anyones guess. Any ideas?

The weatherproof charger really does a good job on charging my cameras from time to time. But I got interested with the Charging station in which I can charge my batteries simultaneously where I can just simply hot-swap them when it already needs charging.
