They want to make more money. Everybody needs this, so this is a sure sale whereas not everybody needs the micro USB to USB cables that they're now supplying with the new Kindles in lieu of a charger. Of course, most tablets come with both. But, like you said, that's Amazon being cheap.

Of course, if you have an old Fire, (I do) I'm sure you can just use the charger that comes with it to charge the new ones.

They want to give you choice. Most people already have several USB chargers lying around the house.

Just call Amazon. I did not order the charger either and they gave me a $10 credit to buy the new adapter (actually $20 since I bought 2 Kindle Fires).

Wrong, they want to MAKE MONEY after KFHD owners are frustrated that those "several USB chargers" take over a day to power up the TURNED OFF KFHD. The KFHD needs 1.8 amps for fast charging. Those "several USB chargers"? On average, the typical 0.5 amps.

$19.99 for a proprietary wall charger? BWA HA HA HA HA

IDI0TS!

Ok, so I didn't know it didn't come with a charger until when I logged in to track my new Kindle HD which will arrive today. Now I have to pay full price for the charger?? What a gip! I'm surprised at you Amazon!

If your talking about the new Kindle HD i agree, also you don't get headphones, so if you have just bought it and want play to with it or give it as a gift you need to spend more money. Today money is not as easy to come buy.

I second that statement. I was told my charger that I now have would be used with kindle fire HD. A blantly lie. Get the charger to me or you can have kindle fire back.

Come on Amazon treat your customers right. I already have two kindles and am getting the new model. You already have thousands of my dollars that I have paid to you for prime and all other content over the years. I know that you give a break on the initial cost of the device but I have already spent more ( times ten) than your top end device costs. This will continue as long as you do not mickey mouse me on basics by not including the wall charger. REALLY!!!!
