Love the camera since no base station required but does anyone make an outdoor charger other than the Arlo solar panel? Have oulets near my camera locations but can't find any waterproof cables that fit camera.

JP7,

 

Outdoor AC charging cables are not available for Arlo Essential Spotlight cameras. For outdoor charging, we recommend the Arlo Solar Panel. For more information, take a look here: Arlo Essential Solar Panel

Thanks, I knew about the solar panel already but hoping someone would make a charging cable. Dont really want solar panels at all camera locations when i have access to power outlets. Hope this changes since the camera is great.

If Arlo doesn't respond, there is a good chance that one of the third party suppliers will step in. This is such an obvious need.

My friend bought a 16ft usb power cable. The rubber/plastic around the connector needed to be trimmed because it was a tight fit. Don't let anyone from the company make you think you need to by the solar panel. Buy the power cord and power it full time and be done with it. Non removable batteries on this model were a terrible design.
