Yes, but it won't charge as quickly as will the Quick charger.

Actually whether or not the white 3rd generation charger will work is in my book questionable.

After being completely unable to charge the kindle fire hd without holding the charger in place I called customer service. The white wall charger would charge intermittently and shut on and off.

As per customer service "no, the white kindle wall charger will not charge the kindle fire hd" not that it will charge slower or whatever, that it simply will not charge it.

However, many people here have said it will. Mine would not at all. Not that it would charge slower, would not at all.

I agree; this is el cheapo of Amazon to not supply a charger; it does not cost that much for them...

To include a charger with the Kindle Fire that takes 13 hours and works through my lap top while it is on tells you something about the marketing world. I bought the speed charger from Walmart for 19.95. It should be included in the box when the unit comes new.
