An adequate AC power adapter for Google Home Mini is a USB power supply that outputs a nominal 1.8 amps at 5 volts (8 watts or more). Should the adapter that comes with the Mini break down, then you’ll certainly need another. So this post makes several Google Home Mini replacement power adapter suggestions. These AC wall adapters we’ve tested with our Mini and found them to work very well, and on the cheap side to buy as well.
Use any micro USB male to USB-A male, medium to high current charging cord. Find these online for very low cost.

Google Home Mini Power Adapter Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Why Won’t my Google Mini Turn On?
Broken adapter or USB power cable often triggers problems like this. So try another USB adapter and micro USB to A cables.
Also, a broken USB power port on the Mini could result in poor sounding play or no running at all. For this, take the speaker to a qualified technician, and have him install a new USB port. Of course, replacing the port on speakers that cost so little to buy is likely none too practical.
Finally, a malfunction in the Mini Google electronics might cause the no-power situation. To fix that, replace the speaker.
