I havent actually bought this charger yet, but I have just received my Kindle Fire HD. Noticed when I used the USB charger plugged into my laptop to charge it warns you that you are using a low power charging source. So I used an Amazon USB plug that I already had, connected the Kindle Fire USB cable to that plug, plugged it in and no warning. Fingers crossed this will charge just as quick and means not having to pay a ridiculous £17.99 for a simple charger
To charge nearly £20 for something that should be included in the box. hat about kindle customers that don't have a pc how do they charge the machine ?. The fact that the lack of a plug is not documented on the the site is equally bad shame of you Amazon
I bought two kindle Fire HD one for myself and one for my wife, and I think that the price Amazon are charging £17.99 is abit off,But did have my white charger for my older Kindle and tried it and it charged the Kindle Fire HD in just over 4 hours...
I to bought a kindle fire and was appalled no charger unit supplied so tried the one from my H T C phone it works just fine and as will be using kindle in my motorhome most of the time this will be one less plug to carry
If you have a Iphone or ipad/ipod device the mains plug for that will charge your Kindle for free, if not go on Ebay like I did and pay £2.49 free delivery for a iphone plug, then just connect your micro usb cable into the Kindle and the standard usb into mains plug socket works a treat.
I too have just worked out that Amazon expect me to pay £17.99 for a charger! Thank you for all the comments explaining that any charger with USB fitting will work. Am now using my Samsung camera charger and it seems to be working - great, as that goes with me on holidays and will save spending the money and adding extra weight to the luggage!
I have a USB power charger for my regular kindle, so I suppose the same one should also work for the fire HD? Can't see what the difference is. Will plug it in to the mains and see - has anyone else tried this yet?
Help NO charger with Fire HD, going on holiday soon, i have a Samsug galaxy S 11 Quicktap phone with charger output 5.0v/0.7amp, will this do the job, do not see why we have to pay for a charger at £17.99
I have a Samsung digi camera with usb port. 4.4 V 400 mA . It does charge but a bit slow. The old kindle reader charger works too, a bit faster thankfully. Have started charging it overnight to not loose time. And it is still working fine!

Kindle Fire 7", LCD Display, Wi-Fi, 8 GB - With Special Offers
Have two of these both charged on generic chargers for a couple of months now refuse to do so.Will both charge only on Kindle Fast Charge a pain as this is without doubt the most expenses Micro USB charger in the World (At least it works) Tip you can get a second hand one on the marketplace
I've been using an iphone charger for my new kindle (for 4 months) but now the charger wont work anymore. I'm unsure if the Kindle has done the damage but think its now best to buy the charger that is most suitable for charging a Kindle, even if it does cost the earth.......not a happy bunny!!!
Am not at all pleased that there is no charger included with the Kindle Fire HD-at the price for the tablet you are entitled to receive the charger included.I received the Kindle for my birthday from my family & they were most annoyed when I opened it to find no charger included.Shame on you Amazon1
Hiya, this is for FOR MALCOLM BUTTERWORTH I have just paid for charger off Ebay, I read your post, and I now have my iphone charger charging Kindle very clever!! Thanks very much indeed, try and cancel charger....Isabelle :)
I bought the Fast charger for my Kindle Fire, and only got to use it recently as have been abroad for a while. (It is now too late to return it as a result). I plugged it in and guess what - it took all day to charge!!! What a waste of money. Never mind being termed as "fast" - it is no faster than the one that came with the Kindle Fire when I bought it. Why on earth does it take so long to charge something??? Kindle Power Fast Charger for Accelerated Charging, UK (for Kindle Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers)
Has anybody lifted the two small black cardboard flaps at the bottom of the box for a kindle fire Hd and found a mains power adaptor ? Well i did and i indeed have a mains power adaptor!! which i plugged the usb cable (located in the recess in the centre of the box) into and into the mains and its charged up. i bought mine from Waterstones, and if you read the small print on the back of the box it says that the amazon 9w power adaptor is included !! so don't understand why you need to buy another charger or am i just lucky ? paid £119 for it and its the 8gb version. Suggest everyone has a look.
Think you're just lucky Mr. Tate....none in mine...& have been charging mine since last nigh...first on the pc & from lunchtime on my phone charger, think it's a disgrace that it doesn't come with a mains charger...my son is desperate to start playing with his kindle.
