1.0 out of 5 stars Amazon's Great Big Rip Off 20 May 2012
By Eeyore
Verified Purchase
Amazon, you asked me for a customer review on this product? You can't be serious. What is there to say about an adaptor plug? You buy a Kindle, you need to recharge it, and it's not always possible to plug into a computer with the USB cable that comes with the Kindle. So what do customers do? They shell out 12.99 for an Amazon adaptor plug. This is bad, bad marketing on your part because no one likes to be ripped off and this is just what you are doing to your customers. Do I regret buying my Kindle? No, but I certainly do resent having to buy this adaptor at an exorbitant price from you. It should be supplied with every Kindle purchase as part of the package.

1.0 out of 5 stars Its a USB to mains charger 30 Dec 2011
By Spexz
Just to save people some time and money, this is a 3 pin mains to USB socket charger, meaning you can charge any USB device such as other smart phones, you can get a USB charger for 2. Its the same type that comes with modern smart phones (except iPhones). Its not a properietery product, You can use your Android / Blackberry phone charger with your kindle.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced and not needed 26 Jan 2012
By HanaBi
Verified Purchase
I rather stupidly bought one of these 3 or 4 months ago with my Kindle. I thought back then what a rip-off price was being asked for such a basic adaptor - 9 (Yes, NINE POUNDS!!)

As a functional product, it works perfectly: plug one end into a mains socket and the other on the supplied USB cable, which in turn is plugged into your Kindle and off you go.

But quite frankly I have made do with just connecting the Kindle to my laptop; or even using an existing mobile phone charger to the Kindle, with no ill-effects, and it charges perfectly well. And when you consider that one full charge will usually keep the Kindle going on its own for around a month, buying this glorified plug is false economy.

But what is even more appalling is the price of the adaptor now - January 2012 - a staggering THIRTEEN POUNDS!!!

This is the most blatant form of profiting I have witnessed by Amazon, and just goes to show what they think of their customers. I accept every company needs to mark-up its products in order to make some form of reasonable profit, but this is quite shocking!

So this review gets 2 stars, purely for the fact the adaptor does its job. But there are alternatives: you're not tied to buying this. Look around and safe yourself 13 and do it soon because I dare say in a couple of months Amazon might ramp up the price even more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Authentic but incomplete 5 Feb 2012
By Paul Madge #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Having spent the money I have on a Kindle Keyboard it would be silly to put it at risk by using a charger that wasn't up to the job. This charger is certainly an original, just the same as the one that came inside the Kindle box. It looks well made and sports the Amazon logo.

What I was not prepared for was the fact that this power adaptor doesn't come with a lead to connect the charger to the Kindle. I can think of few reasons why someone would want a replacement/additional Kindle charger without the lead. To me this is uncharacteristically mean and thoughtless on the part of Amazon - they are normally better than that. Four stars as the core product as advertised is perfect, but, the missing lead is annoying, especially, as most people won't realise the lead isn't supplied until they open the adaptor - this means a further delay and more expense although I am less worried about having a genuine Amazon lead than the charger itself.

Come on Amazon you normally lead the way rather than leave it out!

1.0 out of 5 stars Rip off !!!!!!!!!!! 29 Nov 2011
Ti be honest i should have read the feedback before ordering but everything else i have bought from Amazon has been great.
It is only a usb/ac adapter which can be bought from most electrical shops/supermarkets for about 1 & it doesn't look anything like the one advertised. If you have bought a camera in the last couple of years then check your box because you should have 1 of these anyway, infact i have 3 from different items. I thought this was Kindle specific & 8.99 is a joke. It will be going back !!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Still daylight robbery at this price 19 Aug 2012
Was 12.99. Now 8.66. Sainsburys USB charger 2.49.

Now, don't get me wrong, I've had my Kindle two months now and I love it, complete convert in fact, but the official Amazon accessories, they're having a laugh.

I even sent in some feedback on this point and to be fair I got a nice reply back answering each point but kind of agreeing on the overall comment that the accessories, especially the cases, are a complete rip off.

UPDATE (January 2013)

I wrote this review well over a year ago, and in reference to the then current price for this (less than nine pounds!). At the time I wasn't thrilled that Amazon had kept the price point the same for a basic mains plug (not supplied with 'baby/All-New' Kindle... or later Kindle Touch/Paperwhite) as it had been for a plug + USB lead replacement charger bundle, but was not totally put off by the price point.

Having just gone to buy a replacement plug for my mum's Kindle and spotted the change in price, I have to agree with more recent reviews: close to twenty pounds is far too much to pay for a simple USB to mains plug! Particularly when there are lots of well-reviewed products that do the same job for far less. Albeit typically in black!

Rating dropped from 4 stars to 1

=========

Original review:

Amazon have changed their power adapter. You now receive a plug ONLY rather than a plug and lead. For the same price.

Having just the plug makes this adapter ideal for use with the new Kindle or refurbished versions of the Kindle Keyboard wi-fi/3G (all of which ship with a USB lead only), as the end of the USB lead you already have slots into the plug, converting the lead into a mains charger. But it's not so great if you have a damaged lead/plug and aren't sure which bit needs replacing or have mislaid your power supply - as you will need to buy both this plug and a USB lead. Even at the current reduced price for the plug, buying the separate plug and lead is more expensive than the two combined used to be.
