Okay, we have it. 

 

Is any work being done on the battery issues with the standard Arlo?

 

How about with the Android app that suffers from awful buffering since the last update?

I am not using batteries in my cameras, they are hard wired using the alro USB. One of my cameras keeps throwing the "It's time to change your batteries" warning. I climb a latter, unplug the usb, plug it back in and it operates fine for about 10 hours, then it's back to throwing that warning. 

 

If it's directly plugged in, how is it telling me to change my batteries?

Try rebooting your base.

I've tried rebooting base, disconnecting camera and re-syncing. Brought camera inside and even put a battery in it, re-synced, then removed battery and took back outside and installed. Could this be a firmware issue or a hardware issue?

It does sound like a hardware problem. Open a case with support:
