What is Quick Charge and why does my Arlo Pro Wire-Free or Arlo Go camera use it?

Qualcomm Quick Charge is a technology that lets rechargeable battery-operated electronic devices charge at a higher voltage to achieve faster charging speeds than traditional USB charging allows.

Arlo Pro Wire-Free cameras and Arlo Go cameras use Quick Charge technology to help you refill your batteries faster and reduce your camera downtime.

Note: Quick Charge technology only works if you use a compatible Quick Charge power adapter and power adapter cable. A regular 5V Micro USB cable does not have high enough voltage to fully charge your Arlo Pro Wire-Free camera or Arlo Go camera. You must use the 9V Arlo Pro power adapter and power adapter cable that came with your Arlo Pro system or the 9V Arlo Go power adapter and power adapter cable that came with your Arlo Go camera.
