AC Power Adapter for Google Home Mini Replacements

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.

AC Power Adapter for Google Home Mini

1. RavPower 24 Watt Dual USB Wall Charger

They sell this 2.1 amp household charger at Amazon.com and other places.  See its product page here. At under twelve dollars US, this dual USB port AC wall adapter is light and little enough for portability.  But it’s not so small that you’ll lose it too easily.  It runs the Mini indefinitely without heating much at all.

2. Gearmo USB Power Station

This hefty household USB station offers all the current you need to power the Google Mini.  Overkill perhaps.  Indeed it delivers full USB 2.0 power on every one of its ten output ports.  So technically, you could operate ten Minis with this power hub. In fact, this station gives enough energy to run all Google or Alexa smart speakers to date that accept micro USB power input. Find this useful USB accessory here at Amazon.com.  We also reviewed this USB power hub station here.

4. GE Jasco Y14 11307 USB Power Adapter, Double Port

Find this AC USB power supply, or one nearly like it at Amazon.com here.   At less than twenty dollars, this dual port adapter has retractable AC prongs.  It’s so small that it fits into any mobile device accessory kit.  Useful too when you take your Mini with you on vacation. Why?  Because it sports a blue night light.  This built-in lamp makes finding your way around strange hotel rooms a snap.  Bright enough to light up the night.  But not so bright that it keeps you from sleeping.  See our  GE Jasco 2.1 Amp USB Charger, Y14 Review  post for more details on this highly practical Google Home Mini adapter replacement.

5. JBL Charger can Also Power the Google Home Mini

Finally, if you happened to buy a new JBL Bluetooth speaker, you may have received this JBL AC adapter in the box.  We find that while this power supply runs the Mini quite well nonetheless.  It more than meets the Google Home Mini current drawing needs.  See our JBL Charge 3 Bluetooth Speaker USB AC Charger Adapter Specs for further details.

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.
