Power Bank For Arlo Pro Base Station Station

Hi, I was wondering if there is any way to charge my station with a powerbank as last week lights went out and I had no views with my cams. I would also use the same to power my router. 

Thanks

You can hook the base station to a UPS which will power the arlo base for some time depending on how big of one you get. The ups I have will run my modem, router, and the arlo base for about 4 hours. APC is probably your best bet for a UPS. Search Amazon and you'll find a bunch of them is all kinds of different sizes and price ranges.

@pc2k17, what capacity is your UPS? 4 hours sounds low but I haven't tested since I don't want to hear the incessant beeping. Mine is a 750VA model.

I have a 600 VA. I turned the beeping off until battery gets low, then it beeps. When I tested, in about 4 hours the low battery beep started. Not sure how much longer it would have lasted. I didn't need a really big UPS since I have a generator. If the power is out for more than an hour I'll hook the generator up.
