I have over 40 Arlo Go's on jobsites getting full sunlight, and over half of the cameras have charging faults. Is there any way i can hard wire the solar panel to charge it? Please Help

To keep it charged I mean. The plug from solar panel to the camera is not secure enough and a hard wired solar panel would really be ideal for the company. Is this possible? or is there another way?

Without modifications to the case and/or connectors there's no way to hardwire them. The connection should be sufficient but certainly can be a PITA to get seated in the first place. If there's no damage to the connectors on either the cable or camera due to water infiltration I would think a reseating would work fine. You could try some waterproof grease on the seal itself (NOT the connector) to ease the full seating and help prevent moisture from getting in.

Can I use silicon grease on the seal?

Sounds good as long as you ensure it's only on the seal and nowhere near the contacts.

I used Vaseline on the sealing got the tips from an electrician. Get the same error with incompatible charger after exactly 2 days as before.... works fine for 2 days then error

None of my Go cameras will hold a charge from the solar charger anymore - getting faults on all of them.  Tried changing panels, changing cables, changing cameras, no good.
