I have been using my Arlo 2 for years. During the years I’ve notice the battery not being able to hold charge as good as it used to be. Thinking it’s time for an upgrade, I bought new batteries accompanied with a solar charger. 

However after making the changes above, I am still riddled with this “battery drain” issue. It will go from 100% to 0% under 1 day. 

Please help

The issue may be the total number of minutes per day that the camera is recording, with <5 minutes of recording and live viewing being the spec for battery life. In the library add up all the recording times to see what the total is. Are you using activity zones? You may need to remove them to help with troubleshooting since the servers may be discarding the videos based on your settings, artificially reducing that total.

Each video has recorded 30 seconds (14 times since full charge). Will remove activity zones first and report back! 

thank you for the support!
