    Solid Charger and Necessary for Your Kindle Fire Sure, Amazon should have included one of these with the new Kindle Fires. I initially held off buying this as the pricing was $19.99, but relented when the price was $9.99 which puts it in line with non-Amazon branded charging adapters at a comparable power rating.As a standalone charger, this one does pretty good and I like the versatility to charge other items with the USB female plug vs. something hardwired that allows me to charge other USB-type devices in addition to something that uses a micro USB port. I have used this charging plug to charge A Fire HD, original Fire, new Fire, Motorola RAZR phone, and even an iPad2 with no problems.Charging time is faster for a Kindle Fire vs. my regular e-Ink Kindle charger, but since I haven’t – and rarely – fully drain one of my Fires I cannot comment on the “faster” aspect for charging a Fire: I just know it works, but it does seem to charge my phone mentioned above faster than the plug that came from…

    Not appreciably faster than any other 1.8A charger This is not appreciably faster than any other 1.8 or higher amp charger when used with my Kindle, Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD, various Android tablets, and other devices that have USB charging cables.It also blocks an adjacent outlet. Why didn’t they put the plug on the short end like the original black-and-white Kindle charger?It is an exceptionally good deal when purchased together with a Kindle Fire HD on promotion, but the regular price is not competitive for a supposedly premium charger.Additionally, it does not come with a cable, an omission that many people won’t realize.**EDIT** I appreciate the many comments, but Amazon promotes this charger as something that charges faster than other chargers, but I haven’t seen any such advantage. At promotional prices, it’s a good deal, but not at almost twenty dollars. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

    Ridiculous So I was already not too pleased with Amazon’s choice to only include an essentially useless charger when purchasing a kindle hd, and caved to ordering the fast charger so it would not take hours of non-use to recharge. For $20 you don’t even get a full charger, just an adapter to put on to the cord they already gave you. Amazon please just charge the real price for the device instead of settling to slowly rip people off with essential accessories, this sort of thing cheapens your image and erodes loyalty.
