1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 20 Jan 2012
This review is from: e-Reader Power Adaptor, Kindle UK (Type G) USB charger (for Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle, Kindle Touch, and Kindle Keyboard) (Accessory)
I received a Kindle for Christmas but it did not have an adapter plug. I am very disappointed to see Amazon trying to fleece its customers in this way. It is a standard USB to mains adapter which they are charging 12.99 for. I am amazed that the average review is so high. Obviously with a lot of people they have got away with it!!! I use my standard iPhone plug,

Agree with Colin, I was all set to buy a Kindle power adaptor when I read the reviews and I'm a bit puzzled why others aren't using plugs they already have! I use the adaptor that came with my MP3 player and there's no problem.
