Hi,

I own the first gen Yi Action Camera. I am unable to charge the Yi Action camera with XiaoMi power bank/laptop. I came across a video that suggests to push the charging by using a 2Amp output source. Somehow this works. After the light turns blue, i immediately change the charging source back to power bank (less than 1Amp output). Will this damage the battery? If yes, how should I charge the battery?

Please help! Thanks!

Regards,
Xin Wen

Hi, the first gen Yi Action Camera can be charged by a power bank but please make sure the output is 5V 1A, and the USB cable should be no more than 1 meter.

Hi,

I don't think it works. In fact after awhile, the power bank will switch off, it is as if no load is drawing current from the power bank. Tried with laptop and it is the same.

Do you have other solutions?

Thanks!

BR,
Xin Wen
