    Working As Advertised - Initial Review

    I received the new Arlo Ultra solar panel in the mail two days ago, this is a short term use / initial thoughts review. I will follow up after one month of use to provide any information that comes up during the course of use. My first thoughts on the new solar panel are positive. The new solar panel is quite a bit slimmer. lighter, and smaller in profile. That is nice because the solar panel is less of an eyesore. The Arlo Ultra panel comes with typical mounting hardware just like the previous model 4600. After installation we had a clear sunny day which charged my Arlo Ultra camera pretty quickly, all of my Arlo Ultra cameras started around 50-60 percent and were fully charged by the end of the day. The cable is of adequate length for my applications, I did not have an issue remotely mounting the solar panel due to the 8' cable. Previous models of the solar panel had issues with the connection between the panel and the proprietary USB cable. The Arlo Ultra solar panel appears to be improved in that regard, it looks like it is hermetically sealed, with the only connection at the camera itself via the new magnetic connector. This in my opinion is a marked improvement over the previous 4600 model for Arlo Pro and Pro 2 cameras. Time will tell if this unit lasts and maintains the ability to charge the cameras adequately. I will follow up with an update to this review when I am able to evaluate the Arlo Ultra solar panel for a longer duration of time. For people that are wondering, you can only charge one camera with this unit, you can ONLY use the Arlo Ultra solar panel with Arlo Ultra cameras. You cannot use the Arlo Pro or Pro 2 solar panel to charge your Arlo Ultra camera.

    I bought 1 to test, and even though the Manuel says to charge your camera to full and then use it, i hooked it up at 36%.. with in 2 days I was at 100%.. been using it for about 2 weeks now, still so far so good.. I’m going to buy 3 more.

    Best thing ever for my wireless cameras!! I was so tired of taking down the cameras to charge them. This has made my life so much easier! All you need is some sun!

    So many negative reviews for the solar panel chargers, but this has worked exactly as described with no problems. Keeps my camera charged even when cloudy.

    I like it, just wondering how long the solar panel cord last to harsh weather, but right now it works great.
