One month in and I love not having to spend money on these batteries that don’t last. I find this very easy to plug in and use. I tried another system (a “fake” battery pack power cord) and it didn’t work for me at all. The cord is very long which makes choosing a location very easy. I am a little concerned about the very fragile looking “tape” part that goes into the battery area but it seems to be holding up. I wouldn’t want to put any pressure on it.
i have an old arlo system and recently discovered these power wires that replace the batteries. i bought one from another company as a test and that one works great at all times, wanted to order more but they were sold out/discontinued, so i tried these. they essentially are supposed to do the same thing, but they don't always work. sometimes the base station lists the cameras using these wires as offline, while the other one is always online. it's pretty annoying and unreliable, but the cameras these are currently used on are not "essential" to my security system and work fine just being there as a scare tactic for thieves. not really sure why they work sometimes and other times no...
I use this to charge an Arlo camera on a heavy traffic area and it could not keep up. The battery lose it charge two to three percents per day. At first I thought it was the cable too long but when I use the same cable with an original Arlo charger, the battery started to build up its percentage immediately. I am now heading out to Best Buy for a real charger!!!! In conclusion, it would be ok for a light use only. If anyone want to use it heavily then NO. Update: the charger is now officially stop working!!!!
This product dose work with the arlo HD camera. There is a set back. After you log into your program it shows the camera as offline for about 2-4 minutes before the camera activated. An extreme delay. It will save on batteries but if you need to open your program and look through the camera right at that moment, it won’t work, However I did find that the camera did work when it was activated by motion.
Great product and amazing customer service. Bought this power cord as my Arlo cameras got through batteries very quickly and I hate having to climb up the ladder to change them. With this power cord I no longer have to do that. I had a problem with one of my power cords where the thin part of the power cord that attaches to the camera broke. Seller sent me a replacement immediately (now that’s customer service!)
Love the product and it worked great, until the cable got cold and moved by the wind. *snap* Had two cabled fail on me because they couldn't handle the cold, which was the main reason I bought them, because the batteries couldn't handle the cold. It's too bad too, I really liked this idea..
a wonderfully made product it came intact to and to the description. but I found the newer models of arlo cameras are not supplying a place to release the area provided. to bad as it is a greatly made product too even with a usb plug supplied with it that's a great feature.
C'est malheureusement un problème de ces caméra .. Ça prends toujours des maudite batteries qui sont elles hors de prix donc ça deviens problématique si ce n'était de ça je serais très satisfait de mes caméra mais comme je disais c'est pas évident de trouver des piles 1-2-3 a prix abordable..
