Bulky plug at Kindle end of cable.
on 24 March 2013
Item arrived promptly and is as described. However, as with all 'off the shelf' USB plugs it is bulky, possibly twice or more as thick as the plugs on the original Kindle cable which are no thicker than the Kindle. While this isn't a problem for the plug that fits the power source or computer USB socket, it is a problem at the Kindle USB socket. My Kindle lives in a Belkin case which is slightly larger than the Kindle. This prevents the plug on this cable fitting into the Kindle without an alarming amount of 'wiggling' and, probably, associated strain on the USB socket, unlike the plug on the original cable.
I won't be using this cable as it is while my Kindle is in the Belkin case. I am going to take a knife to the plug with the aim of reducing its thickness.
As a backup means of charging the Kindle out of the Belkin case it is fine.
