Power source. Please help!

Hi,

Does anyone know what the power supply / source is for the Google mini ?

I am looking for something that does not need a mains plug 110v or 220v

What I would like is something that will run off 12v or USB.

I live on a boat and although I have a generator, it's only on for a couple of hours a day.

Please help. I would really appreciate it. Thanks

Hi @cambodan

it seems that the google home mini is powered by usb through a micro usb, if possible get a usb power adapter that can supply 5V 2A to test. Check by doing this is it able to power up normally.

Since you mentioned about operating in a boat, maybe you can configure something like below

Solarpanel USB Output to > micro-usb of Powerbank configure in UPS mode USB output to > micro-usb Google Home Mini

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Soshine-LCD-4-S...

Note: 4 bay bay batteries should be able to hold for some time.......

Batteries 18650 are purchased separately, get reputable models like Panasonic / Sanyo / Sony / Samsung / LG Chemical.

else if your generator is 12V DC output, you can consider this

https://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-12V-to-USB-5...

still i would recommend you to put a power bank in between as in between

12V DC output from generator > 12 to usb 5v module > power bank set to ups mode > google home mini

While the generator is starting, the generator voltage and frequency normally are not stable.

It is recommended to place a powerbank(acts as UPS) between the generator The UPS will condition the input voltage to stable output 5V for your usb devices.

I can confirm that the Google Home Mini works with a simple micro USB input, just like a smartphone. The plug is a bit recessed so not all USB cables will be compatible, but I easily found one that is.

You should get a high quality cable because the voltage drop at full volume is enough to make the Home Mini reboot.

The included AC adapter is rated at 5V and up to 1.8A, so get an USB adapter rated at 1.8 or more amps.

Hi Christophe, what USB cable do you use for the Google Home Mini?

You may want to look into a battery base. There are a couple on sale on Amazon that look to fit neatly onto the bottom of the Google Home Mini.

Or you could use a simple rechargeable battery boost charger like for recharging tablets, or jump starting cars. Just plug it into the Mini’s USB Micro-B port. It needs to provide 1.8A DC minimum as mentioned by previous answers. Use that for as long a needed, then recharge the power supply when your generator runs. :)

Do not use a pc to power the home mini as it will cut off on max volume due to not enough amps.

Hi Daniel, I founded a startup, Off The Wall Energy. Our Personal Energy Platform (PEP) product can solve your problem, and a lot more. I just tested the PEP's ability to independently power a Google Home unit without their AC-DC inverter power cable setup. And, if AC power is lost, the PEP's UPS-function keeps the Google Home running without a glitch. The PEP removes the stationary AC-DC divide for DC powered devices. The PEP is an intelligent energy management system with a super smart battery management system. It has grid awareness - dynamic support of any AC standard on the planet, supports multiple DC energy sources - direct connect to solar panel or wind turbine or 12V generator source. We have an App where you can adjust the output voltage to match any DC device from 4V to 24V. We are transitioning from our prototype phase (fully functional units) to the commercialization of the product. I'm interested to learning more about your general power needs, as a boat based consumer. thanks Bob

You will need a 12 V inverter that converts 12 V to 110 V available at any hardware store or automotive store

If he can get a stepdown converter from his boat's 12V to the 5V the mini takes (probably available at marine supply stores), he just needs an appropriate USB-A port to charge from. I found some on Amazon in a minute. Seems wasteful to convert from 12 VDC to 110 VAC then back to 5 VDC again just to power the Mini. ;)
