There are two ways to charge the Mavic Mini. They both depend on the Mavic package that you purchased.
Regular Mavic Mini Kit
The regular Mavic Mini can be charged by simply inserting the battery and connecting the Micro USB to its back. The Mavic can be charged with a computer, a wall outlet, or a portable power bank. You can only charge one battery at once.. so we will have to fly more kit.

The Mavic Mini Fly More Combo comes with a two-way charger hub. You can charge your batteries using Micro USB on the hub’s side, or use the larger rectangular USB-A cable to charge another device. It’s great to be able to power your device quickly. You can also charge 3 devices at once without having to swap out batteries. It’s great.
How To Charge DJI Mavic Mini Controller
Many Mavic Mini owners find this confusing. The Controller does not have a Micro USB port like the drone and battery hub. How do you charge it? How do you charge it? Charging the Mini controller isn’t so difficult once you actually know where to insert the micro USB charging cable.
DJI doesn’t do a good job in letting you know how the remote controller is charged. Although they recommend using the Micro USB cable, the absence of a Micro USB port is alarming. It turns out that the Micro USB cable can be used to charge your drone even though it doesn’t have a Micro USB port. Yes, it’s true. I don’t get why they do this.
You can plug the Micro USB cable into the USB OTG port of the controller to charge your Mavic Controller. Although this is strange for many reasons, it becomes more understandable after looking into the reason DJI made this. It is still not something I like.
Charging the Mavic Mini using Micro USB: Which way should you plug the Micro USB cable into?
The USB OTG port is rectangular and the micro USB Cable…isn’t… how do you connect it? The longer end of the Micro USB Cable goes towards the back of your controller, so that’s how I remember it. You could damage the connection if you plug the micro USB cable in another way.

To fly the drone, it makes sense to use an OTG Cable. Your remote control and your phone must communicate and exchange data. USB OTG allows devices to switch between hosts and devices. You can also transfer more data between your RC device and your phone. OTG USB can also power. I believe they needed this cable as you can charge your phone with the USB connection via the remote control (on DJI Go 4 App). OTG cables allow your phone and RC to communicate.
You can charge your remote with a USB-C or Micro USB port. DJI might be listening and will offer a simple way to charge your remote without causing any damage. Some guidance is needed on how to attach the Micro USB Cable to the OTG port.
