Had issues trying to connect my  Lenovo S5 using the supplied usb c cable, tried multiple ways round, would`nt work.

Finally managed to get everything connected and working using a usb c otg cable with my phones charging cable plugged into the otg cable.

Lenovo S5 usb c port specs : 2.0, Type-C 1.0 reversible connector

Why is the usb c cable supplied not working ?

If any member could point me to a shorter length cable that will work i`d be grateful

Hi Chris, the RC cable of Mavic Air 2 is already short enough, which USB-C cable are you referring to? May we have a picture of it? RC cable.png

It's the Usb c cable that you pictured, the one that came with the drone.

My usb c port on my phone is only 2.0 and I suspect the supplied cable isn't compatible.

Using a USB C OTG cable and my phone charger cable worked.

Do you know what protocol the supplied usb c cable works with?

No point getting another dji cable if it isn't compatible.

I am having the same issue. I get to step 4 when you connect the cable and its a dead stop.

I had to use a usb c otg cable with my phones usb c charger cable plugged into the other end.

My phones usb c port is only 2.0 and doesn`t support any usb c cable with a higher protocol like 3.0 or 3.1 from what information I could gather.

Would be nice if DJI could state the spec of the  usb c cable they supplied, as they are not all the same.

Information I gathered regarding Usb c

Not All USB-C Ports Are The Same
With USB-A, things were relatively simple: basically anything you could plug in would work. That’s not quite how USB-C is: adapters and cables may or may not work, depending on what features your device offers. And most of the cables on the market support USB 2.0 rather than USB 3.0 or 3.1.

Editor’s Note: we can’t overstate that last bit enough—most of the USB-C cables on the market are USB 2.0 rather than 3.1 because they are only designed for charging. If you need to use them for anything else, like connecting devices or transferring data, they will either not work, or will be extremely slow. Make sure you’re buying the right cable. We recommend Amazon Basics cables.

Devices can be cable picky try another cable from Anker or Belkin By any chance does anyone know the USB C type on the Air 2 controller?

From my own experience the standard cable will not work if the usb c port on the phone is only 2.0
In order to get it working had to use a usb c otg cable with the phones charger cable plugged into that.

Have since changed my phone since I opened the thread and all the usb c cables work (lenovo s5 pro)

If the phone supports quick charge it will work with the standard cable.
