2.0 out of 5 stars Do you need it? August 29, 2010
Verified Purchase
I got suckered in to this by the "get it with your Kindle" special offer. It's just a standard charger, so we now have several of them lying unused in a drawer. Check if you have a suitable charger already, if not it's perfectly fine for what it is.

The version 3 is amazing . This is what Kindle should have been on the launch. NO complaints whatsoever.
Also I highly recommend to get the Kindle cover with LED Light from Amazon. It is simple indispensible. With the cover I was so immersed that unconsciously I tried to change the pages by hand like book one or two times.

Dont but the power supply though for UK or any other country. You can use any blackberry or lastest HTC phone charger ( They have higher capacity thena required by kindle)

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it's supposed to! September 17, 2010
Verified Purchase
There's not really a lot one can say about a power adaptor - it fits snugly into the Kindle at one end, and just as snugly into a standard UK or Irish socket at the other end. It's white. It works!

3.0 out of 5 stars Very expensive for Irish Kindle users August 15, 2010
Verified Purchase
The new Kindle 3s shipped to international users (excluding the UK who have their own local store) don't have a power adapter included.

Amazon currently offer this in a promotion with the new Kindle 3 for $4.99. However they ship the power adapter separately from the Kindle 3 so shipping costs of about $13 are added on. At time of writing the Kindle 3s will be shipping in a couple of weeks. The power adapter should have been held back and shipped at the same time as the Kindle 3 so that the headline price reduction was actually received.

The bottom line is the adapter winds up costing about EUR20 inc VAT and shipping.

Much cheaper if less visually attractive alternatives like the LLoytron USB charger are available in shops locally in Ireland.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing like it November 6, 2010
By Lilizar
I have 2 as we have 2 kindle. One if this just disintegrated in my drawer. It peels off everywhere. When I told my sister who also have had 2 Kindle herself, said 2 of her plugs have already disintegrated that this is a known fact - Kindle power adapters, the white tubing outside disintegrate. There must be some safety issue here!!! Please improve the make of your adapters PLEASE! It's ridiculous! When I first found it the state it is in, I thought I had a rat in the house but the covering keeps peeling off!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars UK Kindle Power Supply July 1, 2010
By ab_plus

Unfortunately the micro USB plug is too loose in the Kindle socket so you have to jiggle it around before you get a connection. If the Kindle gets moved then chances are it will stop charging. Not reliable.
Also.....yet another proprietory micro usb plug - why can't there be a standard for this size. I now have a Kindle, a Nikon camera and a Blackberry that all use different sized micro usb plugs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works w/ iPad and iPhone 4 April 19, 2011
Verified Purchase
This USB adapter (UK) is 50% off the original Apple adapter which can only be bought in the UK and works exactly the same. Tested it on my iPhone 4 and iPad. The cord is fairly worthless though as it's it only works with the Kindle. Great for anyone visiting UK often and wants to travel light.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazon branded USB charger October 6, 2010
Verified Purchase
It is a ordinary usb charger with a amazon brand on it. Will charge other device with a micro usb port. Good value when you bought with your Kindle, but obviously overpriced if you want to buy it stand alone.

3.0 out of 5 stars This was bought as a gift for my grand-daughter who lives in the UK,...
My grand-daughter has not complained since she took delivery and so I reckon it must have been good. She had called to thank me for the gift but did not report on its performance.

Disappointed that I had to buy an adaptor, seperately for my Amazon Kindle. It should be be part of the accessory.
