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 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.
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.

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
