Have you looked at third party brands? Non Arlo?

 

Perhaps they don't exist. There are limits to cable lengths before the laws of physics start to intervene.

USB 2.0 has a limit of 16ft. However you can break the limit by using an extension cable with active repeater. You can find them at Jeff Bezo's online storefront.

Is that for signal? Power? Both?

 

There is no "signal" on the USB cable for a charger.

USB spec is for both. For power only, you have to account for resistance of the wire. Arlo pro uses 9v quick charge. So if your wire is long enough to cause voltage to drop significantly below 9v, I'm not sure if it will charge. When I plug in my  5v/2A ipad charger to the camera, the app says it won't charge, although technically quick charge spec allows slow charge by dropping to 5v, I haven't tested that. You could certain try a smaller wire gauge but I'm not sure if anyone makes anything thicker than 24 AWG which is typical for a fast charge cable.
