5.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice International Charger December 17, 2012
Verified Purchase
I do a lot of international travelling, so I have bought just about every conversion and adapter kit on the market. This is the best-made and most versatile I have seen to charge electronic devices, including but not limited to the Kindles. It is a powerful 9 watts and will work safely on any device using a micro-B USB charging port. It can also be used with non-standard devices, like Apple products or older electronics having mini-B ports, as long as you have the appropriate USB cord for it. It can be used in almost every country (the standard European "C" plug can be used in most outliers like the South American countries and Israel because their plugs are dual type).

The charger is as small as it could be for such a powerful charger, is very durable, and compact. I like it because the interchangeable plugs actually form part of the charger. I have a bad tendency to leave adapters in the wall socket and just remove my US charger. The next hotel guest gets a free adapter.

This is at a new price of $29.99($10 less than before). This makes it a very good value, considering the design and quality. Unlike the standard PowerFast charger for the Kindle Fire, this kit comes with a USB cord, so it is complete. An added bonus is that the adapters can twist on in any direction, so you can position the USB cord on the side, top or bottom.

I travel frequently. I have used the International Charging Kit successfully in UK, the Hawai'ian Islands, Turkey and Spain.
The USB charger supplied with my Kindle Fire HD is very slow to charge from a PC/Mac. This may be a moneymaking ruse by Amazon to encourage/force customers to buy the Charging Kit. Amazon did not provide even a standard, single fitting charger which, I thought, to be very mean of them.

Having said that, I found the International Charging Kit to be: exceptionally well made, easy to use, adequate length of cable, very light to carry and aesthetically pleasing. More importantly... it really does provide an accelerated charge. Depending on local power supplies my Kindle Fire charges fully from 15% residual charge in 3 to 4 hours. The lengthy cable enables me to continue reading etc whilst charging.

The Kit provides adapters for charging in: Continental Europe, UK, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, North America, Japan & China. A special bonus for me was that I purchased the International Charger with the gift credit that I received when I purchased my Kindle.

I recommend the Charger for all who travel with their Kindle Fire. However, if you do not travel internationally the UBS cable method of charging may be perfectly adequate.

4.0 out of 5 stars works as advertised February 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
It is much faster than the one that comes with the Kindle. Just be careful that everything is connected well and that you don't touch the end that goes into the Kindle when it is plugged in. You can get a little surprise ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle PowerFast International Charging Kit February 11, 2013
By Rhonda
Verified Purchase
I would recommend this product to ANYONE who travels! My husband and I recently traveled to Thailand and being able to have the charging heads for both US & Asia without having to lug a bulky converter with us was fantastic! This also charged my cell phone when it wasn't charging my kindle devices. :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars A great design April 6, 2013
Verified Purchase
I travel internationally at least once a year and wanted an EASY way to charge my Kindle Fire HD. The design of this system is great. It's one basic plug and cord with changeable heads. It's easy to use and easy to pack. I tried out the European head recently in Norway and it worded great. Some voltage converter + plug adapter sets don't work well there because the Norwegian outlets are deep. This worked perfectly. I also bought this set because it had a U.S. plug and I can charge quickly here at home. There have been some criticisms that the country name isn't printed on the plug head, but the set comes with an extensive list of which heads are needed for which countries, which I find to be adequate. A great product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful to keep the Kindle charged on vacation November 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
I took this on a vacation to a 220V location and it was really useful. The adapters change by twisting them on and off the main body of the charger. The 220V plug was extended far enough to fit into the recessed sockets that are typical in 220 Volt-Land. The other nice thing about the design is that the adapters, when installed, fit smoothly and almost seamlessly onto the charger. The fast charger allows you to charge up the Kindle faster than the standard unit, so it's easy to keep the Kindle up and running. I used my Kindle Fire as a tablet, accessing mail and web via apps available for free. Along with the Wifi so prevalent in hotels and other locations, it was pretty simple to stay in touch until we departed for a really remote area and had no more internet (or even radio and TV) for a portion of the trip. But while I was in "civilization", I was able to link up to my email. Meanwhile, I was able to charge the Kindle and use it the entire trip. I noticed that on one of the planes, the charger outlet was a DC plug (like a 12V automobile plug) so be warned that this may not work on an airplane.

Does anyone know which powerfast adapter from the travel kit works for...
Ginny, the one that works in Argentina is the very last one of the picture. The One where the prongs are in a diagonal position... however... if you will stay in an old apartment or some place where they didn't update their plugs, you might need the second to last on the picture, which is the one... Read More

Does this work in Denmark?
The international charger has an adapter that you can remove the plug and insert whichever plug you need for the EU etc. It has worked great for me in Sweden, Switzerland, Italy, Germany and Czech Republic. Regards, Anna
