USB Power Adapter Specs for the Google Home Mini Smart Speaker




The power adapter shipped with the Google Home Mini smart speaker is a typical medium-current USB power supply.  However, the five foot long white cable is permanently attached to the switching power supply (AC wall plug) part.  This means that you cannot replace the cable should you accidently damage it.  A very little problem however, since inexpensive USB adapters and cables are readily available, should you require replacement.

The US version of this USB supply is circular in shape and roughly one and three quarters of an inch in diameter, and, not counting the AC prongs, is seven eighths of an inch thick.  It sports a standard 120v two prong, non polarized plug, featuring non retractable prongs, as displayed next.

This lightweight and compact power converter accepts 50-60 Hz. 100-240 volts,  0.4 amps, 11 watt-hours Max. input, and a standby power draw (en modo de espera) of 0.01 watt-hours. It outputs 5 volts DC at 1.8 amps Max. to the micro USB male connector at the other end of the permanently affixed cable.

The white attached cable matches the color of the snow white exterior of this supply.

The power supply features no pilot lamp to indicate that it’s operating.

Finally, given these specs along with our own testing, you may replace this adapter with any USB supply and cable that provides 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 ceases to function, than it would be to buy an exact replacement.
