We purchased 5 of the arlo pro cameras when it first came out.
We tried to ordered and ordered the charging station but just couldn't get it !! It's at least three weeks waiting on any websites!

We can only use the original charger to charge the camera itself. It's very inconvenient for people who set up the cameras outside the house and need to charge it with the extension cords even when it's raining!!! It's only because we need to get the cameras working !!

Please tell us where can we get the charging station?

Thank you .
We are willing to pay extra shipping if we can get it sooner. Or is that possible to purchase it form you ? Thank you

Charging them out in the rain voids your warranty FYI.

Yes I would like to know as well. I see Arlo website removed the charging station? When and where can we get this? The Arlo rechargeable battery one is useless as you still need a camera to charge it...

Ditto....I just pre-ordered the charging station and two batteries from B&H.  They say they expect them in stock on 12/6.  We shall see.

 

Does anyone know why Netgear ships a power adapter with the spare battery?  I thought the battery could only be charged in a camera or in the charger.  The camera kits come with a charging adapter and the charger comes with a charging adapter, so it seems like the spare battery itself should not need to include a charging adapter.

Latest update I've seen is shipping expected 1/9/17.

However, since there have been other shipping dates that have been missed, this one may be as well.

I was wondering the exact same thing why it came with a charging cable. It caused confusion at first because we kept asking our manager why he had to go up on ladders and take the camera down to charge, so it seems like an odd accessory build.

Any update on who has these?

They are always out of stock...
I can't find a place or online store who is actually selling them!

It appears the March release date was premature.

Amazon says - New estimated delivery date:
Wednesday, April 5, 2017 - Wednesday, May 3, 2017

Looks like the long wait is over! I got an email from Fry's that the charging station I bought back in December was shipped out today! With a Tracking Number!

Good to know.

Amazon is still saying April (and I ordered the charger in November).

I ordered from Fry's electronics today, and I received it today. I did have to pay an arm and a leg for delivery but considering I've been waiting since November through Amazon I thought it was worth it

Best Buy is claiming that my charging station will ship this Wednesday. I am not counting my chicks, until the eggs hatch, but it sounds promising! I noticed they also added an eBay listing for chargers as well.

Hopefully solar panels are soon to follow! Definitely not holding my breath for those anytime soon. It will be nice having the charging station though!

Amazon must have gotten thier shipment.

Please let us know if you actually received it? 

 

I have waited to place an order... because no one reports 'in stock' (e.g. Newegg, Amazon, BestBuy, Fry's...)

 

Ugh!

Got it yesterday. Put a battery in it and it's all charged and ready to swap. Just need one more battery and I'll be good!

That solar panel would be REALLY nice though. But I won't expect that until 2018. Til then, this charger will be just fine.

I can very happily report my new two-battery charger arrived today from Best Buy!! I also ordered two spare batteries, of which one arrived today and the other will be here Friday. I am betting there will be a run on spare batteries now that the chargers are out. But to answer your original question, YES the long-awaited chargers are obtainable and I received mine. Good luck!

Yep, I agree fully with you. The solar panels are not even featured on the website yet, so it will be quite some time before they are released. I definitely have two locations that would benefit greatly from a solar panel! Having the charger will work well, until such time the solar panels are released.
