I thought only lithium batteries work with Blink cameras because they're 1.5V

NIMH works, I've tried Eneloops. The battery life reading looked funky, iirc always read low probably due to the voltage but camera worked. Went back to lithiums as my local Costco carries them and they go on sale from time to time.

I believe the cameras can also be powered by micro usb. I've been meaning to hookup one near the front door to a more permanent power option since there is the most activity.

Do these require any kind of subscription? Does the KIT include everything I need aka the hub?

One thing that helped my blink cameras was putting a Mesh repeater close to the cameras and move the base station closer as well. Originally I had my Nighthawk X6 and base station in the back of the house, and cameras about 30 feet away in the front of the house, the lithium batteries lasted only a month, even though they had a strong signal.

Yes but you're using twice as many alkaline cheap batteries then using lithium, I was more saying I wish they had it rechargeable.

Buy rechargable NiMH batteries?
I've been using rechargeable lithium in mine and they've worked great. Bought these on a slickdeal for $12 last year: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1

Obviously they're a lot more expensive now but I would keep an eye out for deals. I went the rechargeable route because I like to have longer and higher quality recordings and often look through my camera live so I drain the batteries much quicker.

Are these compatible with the Blink XT2 hubs?

1. You are not supposed to use rechargeable batteries in these 2. They're garbage and completely miss people coming to my house sometimes 3. These pickup motion from cars, bushes, trees, shadows...good luck

I got the indoor Blink camera from Woot on the last deal a few days ago in 'used acceptable' condition for $20 and it came brand new never used, works great.

they are garbage, but not just from missing detection. random cameras will go out, live views will fail, sync modules will randomly die, strange artifacting will plague your cameras even when they are kept indoor and as instructed etc. check out the blink subreddit for horror stories. support is terrible to deal with.

this is coming from one of the earliest adopters of blink cameras (way before amazon acquisition, which IMO really killed it in a bad way, just like ecobee which is also now shit) and i have a total of 8 (including the original white ones, XT, XT1) and ALL of them experience random dropouts in my home with 400mpbs wifi.

they're pretty much terrible new, i can't imagine getting them refurbed. to each their own, though.

The new XT3 came out yesterday. One of the main features you can add a USB storage to the hub. No need for subscription I guess if you're connected to the internet

Have three, XT and two XT2s.

Definitely one of the better WiFi cams...Never had a problem, and I've owned at least 25 different ones with Wyze, Amcrest, Eufy, Defender, Laview, Yi, etc.

I haven't had to change batteries yet and have over 2,000 recordings never had to pay a cent in monthly fees.

i've owned more than 25 cameras including other brands, and i find what you say hard to believe. can you tell me how blink XT is better than eufycam2? or are you comparing it to their $35 camera? and the $25 wyze cameras? Confused

I think it's only for accounts created after April 15? Looks like XT2 and older still qualify for free cloud storage.

Edit: "Please Note: XT, XT2, and legacy Indoor cams will continue to receive the existing free storage. Accounts created before 4/15/20 will also receive free storage for new cameras including Mini and our new Indoor and Outdoor."
Should I sell the unopened cam that I got for Christmas last year?
