On the other hand, the second unit I bought I have just installed on another (more accessible) camera and it's charging nicely (remembering to seal with petroleum jelly again). So it seems that these (expensive) solar panels have a lifetime of <1 year; I converted my other camera to hard-wired during the autumn, about 6 months ago.
Not great for a penny change out of £90.
SECOND UPDATE: Upgraded up to 3 stars again now. You can see (below) why I downgraded, but the replacement is working fine. I have to say though, I believe this is purely because I used petroleum jelly to seal the cable connections against water, at both the camera and the panel ends. NOTE: it's applied only to the sleeving, NOT the metal electrical connections!
So this one has been great, the camera hasn't needed to be charged again - the solar panel has kept this one well charged.
If I hadn't had to seal the cables then it would be a 4 or 5 star review; it shouldn't need to be like this. Netgear should either advise (and ideally supply) sealant, or design the connections to be entirely waterproof.
UPDATE: Now downgraded to 1 star. Why? Because I bought 2 at the same time. The second went up the day after the original one, and this morning I am getting the same "charging fault" error with the panel.
Again, this will get returned for a replacement. But it seems that these outdoor solar panels cannot cope with being outdoors. Arlo's forums show users recommending a variety of ways to seal the joints where the cable meets the camera and the panel but you should NOT need to do this - or at the very least, Netgear should not only advise this but also include some sealant in the packaging.
This really isn't good enough. I hopefully am not going to update this review for a couple of months; if the replacements last that long I'll upgrade the score. If not, you'll get an update before then!
When it works, it works. As with everyone else, I bought 2 of these to keep my outdoor cameras charged so I wouldn't have to get up a ladder all the time to recharge them (and by the way, they do NOT last as long as Netgear say they do).
I am returning the faulty one, we'll see how we get on - but I am very disappointed; the ability to mount and charge wirelessly is THE reason I bought the whole package. If I have the same problem again I'll probably be bundling the whole ~£1,100 of kit and returning it ALL for a refund as it's just not fit for the purpose it was sold for.
Despite this fault being well-known (google "arlo solar charging fault"), ARLO want you to jump through lots of hoops to initiate a replacement. Their own firmware has no tolerance for a charging range seemingly to prevent third party cable providers.
I have asked by CC provider to initiate a chargeback. Would NEVER BY ARLO again. Will stick with a more reliable wired system in future. Was OK for a short term fix but won't be getting any more of my money!!!!!!!!
DO NOT IGNORE THE REVIEW (like I foolishly did)
