4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Charger and Necessary for Your Kindle Fire October 9, 2012
Format:Accessory|Verified Purchase
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 <gasp> 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 Motorola. I like the sleek black look of the charger vs. white, and the plug sockets can fold in when not in use.

10/25/12 UPDATE:

THe review I wrote with a 4 out of 5 star was when the pricing was $9.99; Amazon has changed the price to $19.99. There are cheaper models out there here on Amazon for around ten bucks that will do the same job, so you may want to give this one a pass.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not appreciably faster than any other 1.8A charger September 18, 2012
By Kris
Format:Accessory|Verified Purchase
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.

**EDIT** When the review was written, the description of the item did not have this statement "Optimized for Kindle tablets: PowerFast is a 9W charger and will charge your Kindle tablets faster than the white 5W Kindle charger will." That line was added a considerable amount of time after I wrote my review.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculous November 13, 2012
Format:Accessory|Verified Purchase
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should be included November 21, 2012
Format:Accessory|Verified Purchase
Amazon should include this charger with the Kindle. The fact that they're charging us extra for something that should be included is a sign of cheapness. Plus, you can use any micro-USB phone charger instead of this to charge your Kindle. Save your money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle , no charger December 3, 2012
By Judy
Very disappointed! Sent kindle fire as a gift and was informed she had nothing to charge it with. Bought two last year and they had chargers. Shouldn't have to buy something separately to work!

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad sells decision. Not worth the 19$ December 18, 2012
Format:Accessory|Verified Purchase
Im not usually one for writing reviews unless something particularly stands out, and on this note something does.

For all who dont know this is just a wall mount usb charge plug in. This does NOT come with the hook up.

There is no special magic that makes this plug in any more affective then say a cell phone usb wall mount plug in you may already own or the 10$ one you can pick up from walmart.

I specifically asked if this was something you 'had' to have for your kindle to charge faster or if any old wall mount usb hook up would work. They replied of course stating only their product would of course work best with the kindle.

Just so anyone else out there knows before you go putting out more cash on something that should essentially be included with the base product (Because I mean really what electronics these days dont come with some type of wall base charger?) that ANY USB wall mount charger will work PERFECTLY fine with your kindle.

I love my Kindle HD Fire but sorry Amazon I'm dissapointed in you guys for being needlessly cheap here, step up your game!

We are already buying the kindle which you make alot of money by keeping our book/magazine/music/app shopping for our kindle mostly through Amazon. So do us the justice of selling a 'Whole' product I think your customers deserve that much!
