Extremely poor construction
on March 21, 2010
As I'm ordering a non-OEM replacement Kindle power cord, I felt compelled to share my experience and disappointment with my original cord that came with the Kindle I bought in April 2009. After about six months, the insulation on the cord began to crack and fall off, so that the braided metal inside is all that's left. I stored my power cord in my desk drawer along with other cords that had similar uses -- iPod cord, USB cord for digital camera, etc. -- and none of those cords experienced any problems, so I don't attribute the flaking insulation to heat or sunlight.
Anyway, I love my Kindle, but the power cord is lousy, and I will definitely not be paying the exorbitant price of the original to replace it.
