Genuine Motorola Charger and cable! Charges my Kindle Fire HD and other Android devices perfectly fine

Motorola USB Charger and Cable
I have a bunch of Belkin 1A USB chargers that I noticed would not charge my Kindle Fire HD! I grabbed ALL of my USB chargers and went through each one to see which of them would work on the KFHD. The Samsung 1A charger from my Galaxy S3, the Motorola 0.85A charger from my Motorola Droid 2, and a 0.85A charger from a LG phone were the only ones that worked properly. My Galaxy S3 would charge fine from any of the Belkin chargers, but I needed a travel charger that I could bring with me. As a result I ordered another of the Motorola chargers from Amazon, and this works perfectly with the KFHD. It may not be a "fast charger", but it charges it up to 100% without any drama even on the KFHD without any error messages.
Overall: 5/5 stars, very very good price, works perfectly, great quality. May be only rated at 0.85A, but charges up my Kindle Fire HD 7" perfectly fine.
UPDATE 29 JUL 2013:
This charger works on the Go Pro Hero 3, Sony Action Cam, Kindle Touch, Kindle Fire HD 7", Samsung Galaxy S3, FujiFilm XP200, Motorola MotoActv, and BlackBerry Bold 9900 (the BB was REAL picky about chargers).
UPDATE 28 AUG 2013:
Using a Kill A Watt meter, I recorded 6.0 Watts with the Kindle Fire HD 7" (no error messages were observed, it charges up the KFHD just fine), 5.9W with the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930, and 5.2W with the FujiFilm XP200 camera. This charger is not rated at a full 1.0A, but my Samsung S3 charger (which is rated at 1.0A / 5VDC for USB) consumed 7.7W of power charging the KFHD7" and 7.5W with the BlackBerry. Assuming equivalent charging voltages, there is roughly a 0.3A different in current output between this Droid2 charger (rated at 850mA) and the Samsung S3 charger (rated at 1.0A).
