These keep my Arlo Pro 2 cameras powered up all the time, enabling some special features that make a great Arlo Pro 2 system even better.
Cable is too short to be convenient
Cable is not in an easily-concealable configuration - it's a large diameter round wire as opposed to a flat cable
Only available in black - a mismatch to the case color of the Arlo cameras and an eyesore in comparison
This is your only choice right now to keep the cameras powered up outside and utilize advanced features
I love my Arlo Pro 2 system but I'm seriously annoyed with these adapters. Several third parties offer outdoor power cables for the Arlo Pro 2 cameras. These competitive options offer cables in both white and black colors, they offer flat cables for easy routing/concealment and they offer lengths of 16 feet or more. NetGear has elected to essentially block the use of these third party adapters through software on the cameras. Netgear's offering, by comparison, is only offered in black, which does not match the camera and is highly contrasting when routed along white trim of the house. Netgear's offering features a round, heavy gauge cable that is inconvenient to route and conceal and is only available in a relatively short 8.2 feet.
In order to preserve my warranty and comply with the instructions for use, I purchased 6 of these NetGear outdoor power adapters for my Arlo Pro 2 cameras. With the cameras mounted 7 feet above the ground, per the instructions, these 8 ft-long cables offer very little flexibility in camera location relative to power outlets. The cables are hard to conceal and the cost of the adapter is not commensurate with the features, compared to third-party options.
I have been really satisfied with my Arlo Pro 2 setup but these cables are a let-down! Unfortunately, they are your only option for outdoor constant power supply.
With any other rechargeable battery powered equipment I own, whether it is a handheld drill or a digital camera, I usually have one or more spare batteries, and keep at least one battery always plugged into the charger and thus instantly ready for use to keep the equipment operational. I inquired of Arlo/Netgear if they had a similar accessory for the Arlo Pro system, and they pointed me to this "Arlo Pro Charging Station".
This product comes with the charging station itself, plus a single 'wall wart' charger that appears to be identical to the charger that came with the original Arlo camera kit. The wall-wart charger plugs into the center of the charging station, and the rest of the charging station is really just a pair of receptacles into which Arlo batteries may be plugged (or docked). One battery can dock with each end of the charging station. Pressing the battery into its dock, it locks in place, and pressing it again lightly it is released and a spring pushes it out of the dock so you can grab it to pull it out the rest of the way. This is pretty much the way you can press an SD memory card into a digital camera, and press again to extract it.
The top of the charging station has two LEDs, which show the charging status of the two batteries. If only one battery is docked, it charges at the same rate as it would if you just plugged a camera with a depleted battery into the charger that came with the Arlo kit. If you dock two DEPLETED batteries into the charging station at the same time, they charge at about half the rate they would charge individually. You can leave one or two batteries in the charger at all times, topped off and ready to be used in an instant (I verified this with Arlo/Netgear tech support, because the product literature and specifications don't mention this).
It is important to point out that this product does NOT come with batteries, so you need to buy one or two Arlo batteries along with this product if you wish to use it as intended. It does not make a lot of sense to buy it if you do not have at least one spare battery on hand to charge, and keep charged, while each of your Arlo Pro cameras are using the main fleet of batteries that came with the Arlo product in the first place. So please keep the cost of those in mind when deciding if you would benefit from buying this product.
Now, when I get an Arlo alert that a battery in a camera is depleted, I pop one of the two charged batteries out of the charging station, take it to the camera, swap it for the depleted battery and pop the depleted one into the charging station so it will be ready when needed for the next camera. This takes only a minute or two, and sure beats the alternative. But of course such convenience comes at a monetary price.
A few comments. I bought this with two new Arlo batteries, of the same model as the ones that came with my camera. I bought all of this when I got a low battery alert, and because of Amazon Prime I had it all a couple days later, and the low battery still had enough juice to keep the camera operating over that time period. I let both new batteries charge overnight in the charging station, and both indicated FULL on the LEDs. But when I went to swap out one of the two new, fully charged batteries into the camera in question, it was in operative after the battery swap, and the Arlo app indicated that the battery was registering as empty. There followed some experimentation, and eventually I was able to ascertain that one of the two new batteries was defective, even though the charging station indicated that it was full. I used the charging station to recharge the originally depleted battery, which then worked properly with its original camera, and I marked which of the two docks on the charging station I had used to charge that battery. Then I used the Arlo app to determine which of the other three cameras had the next most nearly depleted battery, and charged that battery in the other dock on the charging station, then put it back into service. This proved that both docks of the charging station were in fact capable of fully charging their respective battery. Then I took the apparently defective battery and tried charging it 'in camera' using the single wall-wart charger that originally came with the camera 'kit', and that battery failed when placed back into service. I checked with Arlo tech support, who agreed with my troubleshooting methods and analysis, and asked me to mark the defective battery in a certain way, then return it to Amazon for a replacement; presumably the special marking would be used when Amazon ultimately returned the defective battery to Arlo. I mention all this because A) although the Arlo batteries (and Arlo product in general) seem to be of a high quality, defective batteries are not unheard of, and B) this charging station might indicate that a battery is fully charged even when a faulty battery is not actually charged up fully. These batteries, like many (most?) Lithium Ion batteries, have multiple pins on their electrical charging connectors, because each individual cell in the battery is charged and monitored (as opposed to treating all cells in the battery as a whole). Apparently, one or more cells in that defective battery were either bad, or not connected properly internally, in such a way that the charger though all was well when it was not, at least according the camera.
My second comment is that I rather wish that Arlo had provided some simple means to indicate which of the two battery docks should preferably be used the next time that a charged battery is needed, so the user does not just always use one side of the docks and possibly ignore/neglect the battery in the other dock. It would be human nature to habitually use the same dock all the time, or forget which one had most recently been used. Absent such a feature, I laid a small plastic piece on top of the dock that I want to use the next time a charged battery is needed, and then move that plastic piece to the other dock every time I swap out a battery.
My third comment I think it is advisable to mark each battery in your fleet (in my case, I numbered the four original batteries 1 through 4, and the two newer batteries were marked 5 & 6; I used a black Sharpie pen for this purpose). You could optionally keep a record of battery use, but at least if you start suspecting a problem with a battery or a charger, having the batteries numbered would be useful.
2. AC plug cannot be detached for use with a functional cable.
3. Cable is too short.
