I‘m searching for a short (Max. 30cm) cable for the Camera. I have already bought some but they didn‘t work. So I don‘t know which one I should buy. Can you please help me. If you could send me a link or the name of the cable you use, it would be very useful!
Hello, The camera uses a standard Micro USB to USB cable.
A product on Amazon is this https://www.amazon.co.uk/WyzeCam-NestCam-KasaCam-Charging-Security-5M/dp/B07JZ4PW1M/ref=asc_df_B07JZ4PW1M/?tag=&linkCode=df0&hvadid=375533649026&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10116808575036125968&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9046675&hvtargid=pla-691160498874&psc=1&ref=&adgrpid=75934964119&th=1
That said these cables are not as short as you would like.
@Steven_Kami do you know of the power cables are required to be a min length?
I know there are power concerns when a USB cable gets too long @Brian has done some great work on such.
Thanks for your answer! But I need a Short one. The one you send me are too Long.
I habe bought this cable, but it doesn‘t work. Do you maybe know why?
It could be the quality of the cable. I’m not sure if there is a min length the cable needs to be. I know there is a max. Is there a reason you couldn’t just use the one that the camera came with and place the cable in a position but not cause you an issue?
It seems to me that the only cord that works is the cord that came with the cameras. I have one camera that will work with original cord but not with others. I have bought several and camera just stays with a yellow steady light. Reset is not an option either, no matter how long or short I press reset nothing happens.
I have the same issue.
I need a longer cable (3 meters long, not so much …),
I tried at least 10 different cables, but no one of them do work.
as @lerhardt2 wrote, just a yellow steady light (and that means that the cable is providing power, I suppose …).
I’ve just bought 4 new 1080p AI+ cameras;
the other 3 cameras I already had can work with any cable.
I have 16 YI 1080P cameras, a Yi Dome Camera and a Kami doorbell cam. All of them have accepted any cable I throw at them. Not so on the bases though, I think they must require a minimum amperage.
as I have written few minutes ago, I have the same issue.
I was going to buy this cable, but, reading the reviews, it seems that it doesn’t work with YI cameras.
the cameras I already had can accept any cable.
the 4 new cameras I’ve just bought seem to be more … demanding …
do you think 1 A couldn’t be enough ?
Are you using the supplied charger base that came with the cameras? The old Yi 1080P cameras use 1 Amp so I think that would be sufficient unless something was changed. The only other idea I have would be if they changed the cable pin out to something with a special pin setup. (e.g. Samsung phones will charge slowly with any micro USB cable but fast charge with a Samsung proprietary micro USB cable.)
