I just got my Mini. Is it supposed to come with a charger (wall wart)? All I have is a USB cable.

A lot of smartphone chargers and some computer ports will not provide enough current to charge the battery in a decent length of time.  Make sure the charger is at least 18 watts and provides at least 2 amps to the port you are charging from.

It is not the current, but the correct voltage.
These quick chargers supply pump the voltage up from5 to 9V,and then 12V at max. 18W (1,5 amps).

You may have a regular USB 5V 3A output charger, but then it still will take hours and hours to charge.

With the blinking speed of the LED's you can see the speed it will charge (and what input voltage it takes).
A regular phone charger might do the job too: just read the voltages mentioned on the adapter, and not exceeding the 18W (1,5Amps)

Without a charger, you can only charge the battery in the mini, but you need a power supply and the USB cable. As already mentioned here, the performance of smartphone charging power supplies is quite weak, so it takes a long time to charge the battery, I think about 3 hours

I am sorry I didn’t realize the discussion was about using smart chargers.

Just the normal mavic mini package does not come with a charger, to stay in topic. If you got the fly more combo,
It comes with the charger and it is as described in other posts a quick charge 3.0 wall charger that outputs 5v, 9v, and 12 volts in their respective amperages.

Thanks for the info, folks. I used the wall wart from my Google Mini speaker, and it charged up just fine. The next experiment is to use the fast charger that came with my pixel phone. Marking this thread solved.
