I see both battery types listed - so does it matter whether I get CR123 or CR123A Lithium batteries? I am not at the location where my Arlo system is so I want to confirm the battery before I buy new ones.

There is no difference between CR123 and CR123A.

CR123 is a Maxell designation and CR123A is a Panasonic, Sony, and Varta designation for the same battery.

As a matter of fact, Energizer calls the battery an EL123AP and Duracell calls it an DL123A.

Thanks for the clarification - as I was seeing both batteries listed in different Arlo documents.
