Manufacturer Arlo has launched a new version of the Arlo Pro 4. The new security camera is almost identical to the regular model, except that the XL in the name Arlo Pro 4 XL stands for the extra large battery. According to the manufacturer, this should give a longer battery life. So you should be able to do 365 days with one charge.
We were already able to try the new XL battery in the Arlo Go 2. Just like the Pro 4 XL, the Go 2 is also a new security camera from the brand. This will appear in June. This model not only works via WiFi, but also via a 3G/4G connection with a SIM card. This way you can also secure remote locations. The XL battery of the Arlo Go 2 is now also available in the XL version of the Arlo Pro 4, which makes the housing slightly larger this time than with the regular model. Compare the photo below of the new camera with the photo in the header image of the regular model.
The other specifications of the Arlo Pro 4 XL are identical to the regular model. You have 2K HDR video quality with 12x zoom, an ultra-wide 160-degree viewing angle, an integrated spotlight and a built-in siren. You don’t necessarily need a hub, but you can connect this model directly to your WiFi network. Via an Arlo Secure subscription (2.99 euros per camera) you have access to smart notifications and cloud storage, among other things.
