Hi, all! I need a bit longer cable for one of our Arlo Q cameras upstairs, but I cannot find the cables available in the Arlo Store. I did, however, find Arlo Pro/Pro 2 cables, though they say they are “currently not available”; therefore, I have a couple questions:

1) Do the Arlo Pro/Pro 2 share the same power cables and power blocks as the Arlo Q? If so, what type of USB cable do I need?
2) If not, it looks to me like the Arlo Q uses an ordinary USB Type A to Mini-B cable; is this correct? Or is there something special about it?

Thank you, in advance!

You may need to try a number of longer cables from 3rd parties to see what ones are long enough and aldo fit into the micro-USB hole. It's just to pass power so the length isn't terribly important as long as you avoid the cheap cables which use thinner wires. I would guess that any cable that fits a Pro camera would work in a Q, too.

 

And, to be clear, it's a MICRO-USB connection, not mini.
