I would like to thank you for your posts and contributions! I want to make sure you take a look at an article outlining best practices when it comes to batteries. For those involved in this discussion I encourage you to review Remember these golden rules for your Arlo camera batteries along with BATTERY WARNINGS AND SAFETY.

 

We strongly recommend using one of the following types of batteries:

  • The non-rechargeable batteries supplied with your Arlo Wire-Free cameras
  • Tenergy Li-Ion RCR123A 3.7V 650mAh rechargeable batteries specifically marked “Works with Arlo”
  • Non-rechargeable batteries from other high quality, established, well-known manufacturers such as Panasonic®, Energizer®, or Duracell®

 

NEVER try to recharge the C123A batteries that came with your Arlo camera as they are non-rechargeable.


Thank you for sharing!

I've done so in multiple posts about the TangsFire 1000mAh batteries. Here is an appropriate search:

Higher is ALWAYS better... but two problems;

 

1) size varience by manf allowed by set standards ( some just dont fit )

2) I have NOT yet seen a rechargeable 16340/123 cell that is more than 1/2 the oem regular cell  ( that rating is pure BS )

(( prob made in china known for skewed ratings ))

 

The best cells tested by me and one other are the Tangsfire 3.7v/1000mahr ( which are really close to 700mahr ). But, these lasted the longest at 51 days normal use by me.
