This item wasn't for me but for a friend, who had inadvertently gathered up the original charging lead and plugs, which came with her Kindle, with waste paper and had thrown them away so was unable to charge her Kindle through different means when travelling, at home or at her caravan. As she's a little reticent about the internet she described what her original charging 'system' was like and asked if I could do some research to find something for her. This seller was the only one I could find who had what she needed - at a very affordable price too. My friend was over the moon with this when it arrived - only two days after ordering. Just what she needed and at a price she couldn't believe. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a compact charging system.
