4.0 out of 5 stars Not This One, A Much Cheaper Alternative, By AmazonBasics November 28, 2011
Kensington makes excellent products. This Powerbolt Duo car charger is no exception. This Kensington car charger is good for charging the Apple iPad and Amazon Kindle Fire, and it comes with a micro USB cable for the Fire, but it costs $30.

The Kindle Fire requires an electrical charging current of 1.8 A (1800 mA), so only chargers meeting current output of more than 1.8 A can charge it in reasonable amount of time. Many chargers on the market have output current of 2.1A. Make sure you see this specification on the product page. Kensington, Skiva, and Scosche all make car chargers that meet the 2.1 A requirement but are much more expensive.

The least expensive is by AmazonBasics, under $10.

AmazonBasics 2-Port USB Car Charger with 2.1 Amp Output (Black)

You also need a micro USB cable (for charging and data transfer):

AmazonBasics USB Cable - 2.0 A Male to Micro B (6 Feet / 1.8 Meters), $6

This is the kind of cable (USB 2.0 on one end and micro USB on the other) that some reviewers were saying that Amazon should have included in the Fire box. It is used for charging if the connection is between the Fire and a USB charger, or copying files from your computer to the Fire and vice versa, if the connection is between the Fire and your computer.

This charger has two USB ports that share the 2100 mA output, so if you want fast charging, use just one port to charge the Fire/iPad, and leave the other not used by anything else.

This combo costs $16, about half the cost of the Kensignton.

5.0 out of 5 stars It does the job! December 18, 2011
The other two reviews don't say much of anything other than negative stuff so I am going to tell you about the good stuff. I ordered this for my first Kindle. No it is not black like the picture or at least mine is not. Mine is white. It does work nicely when I have been in a crunch to charge my Kindle while traveling in the car. No it's nothing fancy that needs to cost a ton of money! Amazon has provided a good product for charging the Kindle. I hope this helps anyone they may want to purchase. It really does work!

5.0 out of 5 stars On the go charger for my Kindle Fire December 30, 2011
Verified Purchase
Love this charger. Now I don't have to worry about not being able to charge up my Kindle Fire. This fits any standard car plug (former cigarettte lighter) and it even piggy backs a similar product since the plug has two ports.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful accessories June 10, 2012
Verified Purchase
With my Kindle Fire, the more I learn how to use its extensive capabilities, the more I find use for a package of accessories, like the USB connector. I have transferred files from my laptop in a flash. Then there is the car recharger. Now I can go anywhere and keep my Fire ready for reading ebooks or for checking email as well as the entire web. Good accessories. I also recommend a good quality cover to protect the glass in a Fire or any other portable device, and on the Fire, earbuds bring the music or the sound in a movie to you clearly without disturbing others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nifty travel plug March 12, 2012
By Larry
Verified Purchase
This plug in and cord for my kindle works great, and allows me to plug in my cell phone or GPS at the same time, so I don't have to go back and forth with them. It's compact and doesn't stick out too far, which is ideal in my car 'cause I don't have a lot of space near my plug in.
