The website for Arlo clearly lacks information regarding the appropriate solar power units and cords for use with the cameras. A BestBuy employee believes the new magnetic cords would likely be used, but he did not know for sure if the current panels would be used and if the cords would be included. Any information would be appreciated before I buy any of the cameras.

jgreen777,

 

The Ultra camera uses magnetic charging. Magnetic charging cables and an Ultra specific Solar Panel will be made available at launch. Previous Arlo charging cables and solar panels cannot be used with Ultra.
