I am still looking for a charger that works for the 1st generation Kindle. No, it is not Amazon Kindle Micro USB Cable nor is it Rapid wall home ac charger. Mine needs one similar to the Fire only smaller and the sides are not straight. Can we try again?

The first generation Kindle charger does not use any kind of USB connector. The cord for the USB connection and the cord for the charger are completely separate; the K1 can't charge from the computer. One end of the charger cord goes into a wall socket; the other looks like a headphone jack.

Sally, it looks like they no longer carry it.

I think you will have to get one of the universal ones with the K1 tip.

Did you ever find one. I am now looking for one. I don't want to give up on my 1 st generation kindle but my cord is splitting. I'm not sure if I could just use electrical tape and keep a close eye on it. I would much rather be safe. If you know of any place please let me know. Thank you so much in advance

I'm guessing even if they did, 2 1/2 years later their source has probably dried up. Your best bet is probably to call support and see what they say.

your "1st gen" means nothing.... as everything was "1st gen" at some point in time.

Are you talking about the very 1st Kindle with the tiny round power plug ?
OR -
all the other Kindle devices that were USB based -
using either the Mini USB connector or the Micro USB connector -

Jp contact customer service. A couple years ago people had chargers with splitting wires and they replaced them. Maybe you will get lucky.

This one does NOT come with the cylindrical headphone jack type tip that the 1st gen kindle requires even though the photo for it shows that tip. Disappointed.

ETA: I ordered it and received a charger with a mini USB tip, that's how I know.
