Google Home Power Supply Specs for the Original Google Home Smart Speaker




We discuss the US version of the Google Home power supply for the first Google Home smart speaker below.  This supply has non folding AC prongs.   It’s flat “ribbon” cord, six feet long, and very durable.  Plus, this supply is lightweight for its 33 watt power output size. It’s a typical cube shape.  Yet it’s unimposing width and height ease fitting into standard power strips.

Yet this Google Home power supply silently delivers that 33 watts of energy to this first offering in the Google Home line of intelligent talking speakers.  This AC adapter delivers I.T.E. levels of good regulation. This supports that deep bass and dynamic range.  Plus, this well-regulated supply enables quite reliable operation — never crashes.

This is by no stretch a penny pincher supply. Indeed, the Google Home power supply seems well built, though permanently sealed. Further, it runs with little heating, even at higher speaker output volumes. Plus, it emits little  RFI and EMI. So, while not easily fixed, you’ll likely never need to fix it.  Why?  Because it’s highly reliable.  Finally, the low cost to replace this supply makes trying to fix it a waste of time these days.

Google Home Power Supply DC Output Plug

Now the DC output jack, the metal barrel part, is small.  That is, it’s roughly 10 mm long, with an outer size of 4 mm. Furthermore, they set the barrel itself at a right angle to the cable. Why?  Because this allows proper fitting into the bottom of the speaker, shown below.
