this is a perfectly good charger, but if you already have a cell phone charger that uses micro USB- you're wasting your money. I have a new blackberry curve, my wife a droid. Both cell phone chargers charge the kindle no problem.

3.0 out of 5 stars Amazon's Kindle Service October 27, 2010
So, I thought I would share my experience here with getting one of these replaced. The Kindle DX comes with a limited 1-year warranty. The USB/Power cable that comes with it disintegrated after about 1.5 years. Amazon is quite gracious, though, and they are willing to replace the cable for free. But they are not willing to pay shipping on the replacement, because it is after the warranty. Shipping is $6.98, so if you are looking to replace the cable, that is the end cost. It is also not clear what happens if, in another 1.5 years, this cable wears out. Probably if that happens I will forego the cute, matching, unreliable cable for a plain black one that doesn't cost so much to replace all the time.

The long and the short of it is that a $489 device comes with a cable that doesn't last, but that Amazon is somewhat nice in replacing it.

On the other hand, customer service was very nice, and promptly solved my problem, so kudos, guys! I wish you all the best.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disintegrated in the course of a day! February 2, 2011
Verified Purchase
I plugged my Kindle in to charge before leaving in the morning. When I arrived home from work, I found the plastic coating had split in many places, exposing bare wire! I found this quite alarming. Reading the reviews on the Amazon website for this product was very helpful. I discovered that this is happening to virtually everyone, and that folks are having various results when contacting Amazon about this matter. When I called I was first told that my Kindle is no longer under warranty and I would have to purchase a new cord on my own. After I emphatically exclaimed that this was clearly a defective product, I was told that my Amazon account would be credited for the price of a new cord, which I could then order. I had noticed that some other reviewers had to pay the cost of the shipping. When pressed, I was advised that my account would be refunded for the price of the shipping once the item had shipped. Some perseverance and persistence was required on my part, but Amazon came through - at least so far. It has not yet been shipped, so I haven't received the promised refund for the shipping cost yet. I'm just wondering how long the new cord will hold up.

1.0 out of 5 stars Review Kindle Charger Cable January 16, 2011
Verified Purchase
In less than two years it was necessary to replace the charger connector cable. In both of the original connector cable simply deteriorated and peeled from the connectors.
Thus I would rate the Kindle charger adapter cable as highly inferior products.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle USB Cable December 27, 2010
By MOJO
I too join many others in expressing my complaint of the USB cable. It seems the shelf life is only about 1.5 years then it just crumbles & creats a safety hazard. Surprised Amazon didn't step up to this problem and provide a free replacement including S&H. Rather than replacing the cable, I merely wrapped it with black electrical tape.

1.0 out of 5 stars Defective Merchandise May 18, 2011
Verified Purchase
The Kindle power cord for the 2nd generation Kindle is defective and Amazon should issue a recall of the power cords. The plastic coating of the power cord disintegrates after several months of use. This has been documented by hundreds of consumers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charges Kindle and iPhone 3G!? November 6, 2010
Verified Purchase
I lost my original wall charger and USB adapter while reading on my Kindle during a bus ride. The new one came in quickly before my Kindle lost even a bit of charge. I have found that the wall charger also works with the iPhone 3G USB adapter, giving me an apparent full charge. The voltage is about the same and mAH is lower, so charging does take longer. However, that is one less charger to lose and one more USB space on my laptop. This charger has lasted longer than even the "green" charger I bought from AT&T. Which did not get beyond a week.

1.0 out of 5 stars Insulation falls off after two years June 3, 2011
Verified Purchase
I've owned two Kindles and four of these power cables over the past few years. The insulation spontaneously cracks and falls off the entire length of the wire like clockwork after about two years.

I leave my charger plugged in beneath my nightstand. Since my Kindle needs charging so infrequently, I rarely touch the cable. This past week, I went to charge my Kindle only to discover that all the wire insulation was cracking and falling off. Even insulation protected from user-interaction behind heavy furniture was not spared.

I've never had this problem with any other USB cables. Amazon really needs to use a different plastic for the insulation.
