2.0 out of 5 stars don't waste your money!! 6 Jan 2013
By KevH
I got my kindle fire hd for Xmas, and it took ages to charge my kindle from my laptop. I was tempted to buy this charger, but realised that my BlackBerry wall phone
charger charges it quickly and it saved me 18! apparently an Apple wall charger will charge the kindle too!

5.0 out of 5 stars OTHER CHARGERS WORK! 20 Jan 2013
By Becky TOP 1000 REVIEWER
5 stars for the Kindle Fire HD - it's brilliant, but I think we should have got a mains charger included.
I tried other chargers and it turns out that the charger for my Samsung Galaxy fits, and will charge the Kindle! Saved me a lot of money, so I hope it will save others a lot of money too. If you don't have a Samsung charger, they will be a lot cheaper to buy than this one. I hope this was helpful to some people :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Better option than Amazon charger 27 Dec 2012
If you are looking for a Kindle Fire fast charger - try the Original Samsung Charger & USB Data Cable For Galaxy S3 / S2 / Galaxy Note. Under half the price Amazon charges and does the job just the same.

1.0 out of 5 stars rip off i think 12 July 2013
I have just received my kindle fire very happy with it by the way. However placed an order for the adapter then cancelled when I realised my I phone 5 adapter works perfectly well and started charging quite quickly. I may be wrong about the acceleration time but saved myself 17.99 Maybe other users could let me know !!!! Love amazon don't think I'm a total nut.

Overpriced and really should come with the kindle, however if you have an iPhone or iPad then those chargers work perfectly on the kindle :-)

1.0 out of 5 stars The most expensive USB charger money can buy.... 29 Oct 2012
USB chargers are rated at a 5 volt output - the device it is plugged to determines the power drawn. The charger is simply a generic plug with a USB hole in it.
There are plenty of USB chargers that will do the job and cost from 99 pence to 1.99. These cheaper chargers do exactly the same. A charger should be included with the device in any case.
Amazon are using their badge to make it appear that this charger is special - Apple do the same.
The lack of knowledge, coupled with the implied threat that using the wrong charger may damage your device takes advantage of those who simply do not understand and are terrified of electricity.
A friend of mine will not listen to this and he has a separate charger for his iPad, iPhone, Kindle etc - a total of approx 100 for chargers that are interchangeable and cheaply available everywhere.
I believe Trading Standards bodies across the world should be informed of this scam.
PS I complained to Amazon that I had to buy a separate charger and had bought what was essentially a well badged item worth a tenth of the price and they promptly refunded me and said I could keep the charger. It's in a drawer.
I use one that I bought for 1.49 from Maplins electronics.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother 29 Oct 2012
By Paul C

I used this once and it stopped working. The prongs do not fold. It is ridiculosly over-priced. You can buy USB chargers that do the job for less than 5 on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good ideas in this
What I love about this as the plug pins can be turned to fit any socket. Most conventional plug the pins are set in one direction, but these can be moved - fantastic idea.
