Re: Outdoor magnetic cable not charging?
I've got three Floodlights around my house. To save taking them down and decommissioning them each time I need them charged, I bought the Outlook Magnetic Charging cable, so that I can charge them individually.
However, I've realised that when plugged into one of my outdoor power points, it will not charge. It charges fine when plugged into a power point that's inside my house.
I know these power points work, as they connect to my exterior wall lights and those work perfectly fine.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
What is the outdoor temp?
the battery will not charge below freezing, bring them in and then it will charge

I'm guessing this is just a typo and you meant "Outdoor" rather than "Outlook" which would imply a 3rd party solution.
When you say outdoor power points, do you mean the house wiring and outlets? If so, it sounds like a faulty charger - swap at the store. First, though, carefully clean the contacts on both the camera and cable to ensure a good connection.
Did you buy an after market brand of charging cable? I purchased cables I found on Amazon that said they were made for Arlo cameras and were much less money. I had the same problem as you. I found that the Arlo battery was a different voltage than the aftermarket charger and they did not work. Arlo wants $50 each just for their charging cables, that do not come with the camera, but you have no choice they are the only ones that work on Arlo cameras.
