I am about to purchase the ultra cameras and was wondering if the power cable to connect to the camera are already out on sale? 


Also, I would like to know how easy it is to attach to the cameras. I just do not want the maintenance of battery changes. 

 

 

Thanks,

Yes, the charger can remain plugged in 24/7.

camfish,

 

Arlo Ultra charging accessories will be available on release for the the Arlo Ultra cameras.

 

Arlo Ultra uses magnetic charging. This is very simple to attach to the cameras. Take a look here for more information: What is the magnetic charger that came with my Arlo Ultra camera?

Hi, JamesC

 

You say they will be released but when? Is this for outdoor use as well? Are you able to keep the chargers on them 24/7 because its just as much maintenance if we have attach them every week or so?

What happens if I use the indoor cable? The reason I ask is because the lenght of the cable from the camera to a box or hole in the wall is only a few inches. I wouldn't want to pay double the price for an excessively long cable when I'll use just a tiny fraction. 

So what could happen if I use the indoor cable outside?

 

Thanks

ChristianCecchi,

 

The cable is not designed for outdoor conditions. Using it outside could result in water/moisture damage, voiding the warranty.
