A good charger if you really need one!
on September 30, 2013
I just purchased a new Kindle Paperwhite second generation and I did not purchase this charger. Why? Because I own multiple USB chargers and there is nothing special about this unit except it is expensive. You get a discount when you buy the charger at the same time as the Paperwhite but you probably don't need it. You can charge your Paperwhite with your computer, your external battery pack, if you have one, and with any USB AC wall charger you own that outputs 5VDC and roughly 1 amp.
I have multiple chargers for iPhones, older Kindles and other USB products and I decided to save the money. If you need one it is a good charger but I own a basket full of chargers now and decided that it is fine to reuse one of them.
I gave it 4 stars for the high price and the fact that it should have been in the box with the new Kindle Paperwhite.
