Use of AU power adapter in New Zealand? Can one use the AU power adapter in New Zealand? I'm assuming that the answer is yes, but would like verification. Or can I simply use my US power adapter? Thanks!

I would like to purchase the AU power adaptor, but it won't let me ship it to New Zealand. What can I do about that?

I contacted the Amazon Helpdesk to request they allow shipping to NZ for this item. I received a not-extremely-useful reply reasonably quickly. It appears that my request might have been forwarded to their technical department? (It was a little unclear exactly what might be happening).
Maybe if more people contact them to request it, they might actually do something about it.

Sorry don't know have Kindle touch. Kindle Fire has a different power adapter but it should work cos U can charge other USB devices with this.

Thanks Lisa. It seems to be hard to get direct advice. I will try sending them a message so they look at changing the rules. Meanwhile I am hoping that I can buy a suitable charger in NZ. I see Dick Smiths sells Kindles, so am hoping to get a power adaptor through them.

I emailed amazon about this issue & this was the response I got, & when I questioned it further they said, that was their position on the matter, end of story.
I got my Power Adapter by sending it to a friend in the USA & they posted it on to me, perhaps U can do the same if U know someone in the USA or Australia

"Thanks contacting Amazon.com. I'd be glad to assist you with your query.

I checked out "Amazon Kindle AU (Type I) Power Adapter (Kindle, Kindle Touch,
Kindle Keyboard, Kindle DX" on our website and verified it can't be shipped to
New Zealand.

Warranty and legal restrictions limit the delivery destinations for some
products.

For more information, see the International Shipping page:

In addition to our large selection, one of the benefits we try very hard to
offer our customers is convenience. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience you
experienced in this case.

I hope you understand our limitations and we look forward to see you again soon."

Hi Faire
I understand the Kindle comes with a "USB 2.0 (micro-B connector)" so that you can charge up from your computer.
I believe that we will be able to use any USB AC Charger (and I found a couple of Belkin ones on the Dick Smith site), including the Apple one I brought for my iPod.
Good luck!
Lisa
