Google Home Mini Charger Cord Info for the Google Mini Smart Speaker




The Google Home Mini charger cord shipped with the smart speaker, is a standard medium-current USB power supply, though it does no charging. Why not?  Because the Google Mini has no rechargeable battery inside despite its small size.  Though a USB style cable, the five foot long white cord is nonetheless permanently attached to the power plug part.  You cannot unplug the cord from the power supply thus.




This means that you cannot replace just the USB cable should you break it. A very small issue though, since cheap USB charger cords are widely available, should you need one.

Finally, given these specs along with our own testing, you may replace this Google Home Mini charger cord with any USB supply and cable that offers at least ten watts (5 volts at 2 amps) of USB power. Indeed, it may be cheaper to do that, should you lose this adapter or it stops working, than it would be to buy an exact replacement.
