If you realize that your baby monitor doesn’t charge, you may need to replace the charging cord or its adapter if it’s not using USB charging. It can be frustrating to realize that your monitor’s cord or charging cable is damaged and that it may need to be replaced. This can happen for a variety of reasons, such as wear and tear from daily use, or accidental damage caused by pets or other household objects.

I have had to replace my own baby monitor’s charging cable a few times, and I know firsthand how frustrating it can be to find the right replacement. That’s why I’ve put together this guide to help parents understand the different types of baby monitor chargers and replacement cords available on the market.

Charging cords are essential for all baby monitors; AC-powered and DC-powered monitors. If your baby monitor’s power cord is faulty, you need to replace it to ensure the safety of your baby as faulty cords may present a power-surge hazard – a hazard not common with a battery-operated baby monitor. In addition, faulty cords or adapters can render your baby monitor useless as you won’t be able to charge your baby monitor screen or camera unit.

In this article, we have links and instructions on how to replace the power cords of the following baby monitor brands:

  1. Motorola baby monitor replacement cords (MBP36S)
  2. Project Nursery baby monitor replacement cord
  3. VTech baby monitor replacement cord
  4. Oricom baby monitor replacement cord
  5. Summer Infant replacement adapters
