If you have invested in any of Arlo’s security cameras like the Arlo Pro or the Arlo Go, consider purchasing the Arlo Solar Panel to ensure that your cameras are powered indefinitely by the sun. This Panel includes a wall-mount and a power cable to charge your camera battery. This panel is on our list of the Best Solar Panels.

Why We Like It – Arlo Solar Panel Review

The Arlo Solar Panel is the perfect partner for any Arlo camera owner. It is a device that is solar-powered, and with that collected energy, it can charge any Arlo cameras that you own. It includes a wall mount for easy installation and will withstand the harshest weather conditions.

  • Solar Powered means no battery replacing ever
  • Works with other Arlo Devices
  • Power cable is only 6 feet long


This solar panel will charge the Arlo camera’s battery, but the camera and panel cannot be more than 6 feet apart from each other so the power cable can reach. If you happen to have invested in Ring cameras, there are solar panels made specifically for them, such as the Ring Solar Panel. If you are not interested in charging any cameras, the RAVPower Foldable Solar Panel is perfect for camping and other outdoor activities.


The biggest flop from this device is the power cable being only 6 feet long. The lack of cable means that there is a limited amount of space where the solar panel can be installed. Aside from that, it is impressive that the Arlo Solar Panel can withstand up to 113 degrees fahrenheit, but now I’m wondering if it will withstand the 120-degree weather we have experienced lately. If you did not own any Arlo cameras, perhaps the renogy 100 watts monocrystalline solar panel might be a better fit for you since it will charge devices other than cameras. Another slender and compact solar device to charge phones when on outdoor adventures is featured in the Gadget review solio h1000 charger.


The sleek black and simple design are perfect for users because it is made with one simple task in mind, keeping the Arlo security cameras on. It would have been better if it were able to charge other applications instead of just the Arlo products. For the Arlo user, it is the perfect device for charging all cameras to maintain the wireless security systems fully charged through various weather conditions.

Arlo Solar Panel Review Wrap Up

The Arlo Solar Panel is the perfect combination for any Arlo security system. It will power up all the camera indefinitely, and you will never have to worry about an energy bill because the sun does not charge a dime. Hopefully, in the near future, we see Arlo open to charging other devices aside from their own.
