Hello, I just purchased a used Mavic Mini.  It came without the white cable that you use to charge the controller with unfortunately.  I'm going on a trip in a few days and am wondering if there is any cable that can work for this purpose or if you can lead me to where one can be bought.  It didn't come with the white wall plug unit either, but I assume with the cable I could use any usb power brick.  Any ideas?  I would hate to not be able to charge the controller for my upcoming trip!   Thanks, have a great day!

Would something like this work?  I have the black cables that are used for connecting your phone to the controller, I could use the USB C plug to connect the controller to this and then into the 3-way battery charger (got the fly-more pack)?

It should be a similar port to the Mavic Pro controllers and that port uses the micro USB cables from the earlier Samsung Android phones. You don't need any adapters.

Anything with a Micro-A USB or Micro-B USB plug should work. I would avoid any cable with a USB-C plug or socket on the other end because of possible compatibility issues.

I second that, you probably have an old micro usb-b cable laying around with those old phones just a suggest there is a diagram of plug direction on controller use it to save possibly damaging plug.
Best of luck and welcome to the forum.

Thanks so much everyone, didn't realize it was simply an old micro-usb as the shape for the jack is more square.  This worked, you are all legends!!!

Don’t force the cable in because you can break it.
I have older cell phone chargers that work.
Harbor freight has both AC and DC plugs with two putouts that are 2amp at each plug.
Some older plugs have one 1A and one 2amp out puts, don't buy one of those.  
You only want 2A outputs.

I have the DJ Mavic mini. My controller intermittently would not turn on, or it would not turn off.  I have only use the drone a couple of times in my backyard so it’s fairly new. I sent the controller in for warranty repair. Now that I have received it back, there is only one light showing on the controller and the controller beeps and will not charge. I’m at my wits end.  I assume the same charger and cord can be used to charge the battery pack or the transmitter? The battery pack will charge, but nothing on the transmitter. I’m wondering if I just need to buy a new transmitter?? This one just seems to be a lemon  however, is there anything prior to sending it back in or buying a new one that I might try?

Hi there. Sorry about the trouble. Will it be fine if you post a video showing the lights in the remote controller when trying to charge it? Thank you.
