Wireless Outdoor Camera Does NOT Charge

Community Member

Google outdoor wireless cam does not charge. I have checked the power cord to make sure it’s attached properly with the pins and it sits flush on the camera. I have change outlets in the house is not charging either. I charged another device on the same outlet and I was able to charge it. This camera doesn’t even light up when charging or putting it back on the mount.




There are a few other posts in this forum about problems charging the Google Nest Camera (Battery) (including one post where the magnetic connector broke). We've had one of these cameras since September 2021, plugged in at all times with the optional power cable, and it stays charged. Is your charging cord feeding towards the FRONT of the camera? If it is, you may need to try contacting Google Nest Support.
