Arlo VMA4400 - Rechargeable Battery for Arlo Pro and Pro 2 Reviews
Submitted on 10/02/2020 Alarm Grid
The Arlo VMA4400 is a rechargeable battery for an Arlo Pro or Arlo Pro 2 Security Camera. This battery is a very important accessory, as it serves as the only way to keep these cameras powered on without being continuously plugged into transformer power. In other words, you need a battery if you intend on using the camera as a wire-free device. Included with the battery is a power adapter and cable for keeping it charged. You already get a battery and the power supply set included with the camera, but if you need to get a new one or you want an additional battery, then the Arlo VMA4400 is for you. We give the Arlo VMA4400 a 5-Star rating.
There are many things to like about the Arlo VMA4400. The battery is very reliable, and you can count on it to keep your Arlo Pro or Arlo Pro 2 Camera running. There are multiple ways to recharge the battery. The standard method is to just insert it in the camera and then connect the camera to AC power using the adapter and cable. You can also use a battery charging station or an Arlo Solar Panel, with both of those accessories being sold separately. The battery charges very quickly, which is a major plus, as we know how important it is to get your camera up and running in a fast manner. We also appreciate the fact that the battery can go a long time between charges.
There are not many downsides for the Arlo VMA4400. The fact that the battery is for compatible Arlo Cameras only limits its versatility. You won't really fund a use for it other than those devices. And the included power supply is a bit on the large side. It needs to be strategically positioned to prevent covering up multiple outlets. Fortunately, these downsides are very minor, and they do not stop us from giving the Arlo VMA4400 a 5-Star rating.
Good: Reliable, Multiple Recharging Methods, Charges Quickly, Long Run Time
Bad: For Arlo Cameras Only, Large Power Supply
Bottom Line: 5 Stars
