Hi,
I recently bought a Reolink C1 Pro camera, but I also had to buy a 8m USB cable for power as the cable provided wasn't long enough. Trouble is, the camera won't load up using this longer cable, I'm assuming it's not providing enough power.
Does anyone know a good cable to use for this distance?
Thanks

Sorry, as we only sell network cameras none of them use USB for power so we have no experience in this area.
I guess you start with just 5 volts, so will need a good cable to deliver 5 volts with minimal losses OR a powered extender.
Others may be better able to guide you.
