    Did a search and can't find any info for a replacement Micro-USB cable to charge the remote and extender. Is this a standard Micro-USB cable? I know there are different variants of these types of cables and want to make sure I get the correct one. Can someone post a link to the correct replacement cable?

    Thanks

    If I don't use the white supplied cable nothing works. Cable spec are typically listed on the cable in small print. From the DJI P3 supplied cable ---- E230810 AWM 2725 80 degrees C 30V 28AWG/1PR+28AWG/2C USB2.0 REVISION CABLE YUEYANG

    Thanks for the info Ken. Problem is I can't find the original and I remember it was black with the P2V+ not white.

    Any other input.

    28AWG/1PR means 28AWG/1 pair(twisted pair) and 28AWG/2C means 28AWG(Power/Ground)/2 conductor. The twisted pair is used for the D+/D- signals and the 2C is used for power and ground. Much better quality cable type than most USB cables. I would say a micro-USB (Micro-B type) with at least this spec may be a good place to start if nothing else. I searched for replacement options and found nada.

    The micro USB cable is a standard cable. You can use any of the USB charges that are 2.0 amps. The smaller bricks are 1.1 amp and are to light to handle the needed load. I use one that came with my tablet and I have another that came with my 2n1 laptop. If you need one Walmart even has the cable and you can find the 2 amp bricks too.

    I just picked up a standard micro USB, 10' long, $8 at the local computer discount shop (Central computers). It works great for the wifi, remote, and bird.

    Glad your back on the charge so to speak.
