I have recently purchased the Arlo Ultra 2 (2 Camera's and Base Unit) and having real issues with one of the camera's draining the Battery really fast.  We charged the camera to 100% about 15 hours ago and it is already down to 74%.  The other camera we have hasn't been charged since we installed at the start of Jan 21.  Keen to know what might be causing one camera to drain the battery so fast?

Probably either signal strength or interference. Swap cameras around to see if it's the camera or location. If location, check for nearby wireless devices that may be interfering with the signal. If it's the distance (or blockage from walls or stuff on/in the walls) moving the camera while still getting what you need should help.
