Netgear recall Arlo power adapters

Netgear has initiated a voluntary recall of an outdoor power adapter necessary for the Netgear Arlo, Arlo Pro and Arlo Go outdoor security cameras after discovering a potential defect that may pose a fire hazard.

Netgear has discovered that water may enter the camera via the connection between the outdoor power adapter and camera. A short circuit, melting and overheating, posing a fire hazard can result if water enters the power adapter.

To date, the damage has been confined to the power adapter and camera unit. No injuries have been reported.

The affected Arlo Outdoor Power Adapters were sold through various retail suppliers between September and December 2017.

The model being recalled is Model Number AD2090120, Part Number 332-10986-01.

The unit can be easily identified as the model number VMA4700-100AUS can be found on the packaging. The Model Number and Part Number is marked on the back of the adapter.  “Arlo” is printed on the front of the adapter. The product is sold separately from the camera.

It is only this model that is subject to the recall, while all other Arlo Outdoor Power Adapters are unaffected.

Customers can continue to use the outdoor security cameras with the battery.

Netgear is directing consumers to stop using the product immediately and unplug it from the camera. Australian customers can call Netgear on 1800 889 320 at any time or visit to register their products at https://www.arlo.com/au/products/arlo-pro/vma4700-recall.aspx and arrange for a refund or replacement.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
