I'ge seen numerous discussions on problems charging but none that quite addressed my issue. It appears that the power cords sold by Amazon specifically for the Kindle don't work with my Kindle Fire. I initially thought the problem must be with usb connection on the kindle and actually had it replaced. The replacement has the same problem on the amazon cords (I have several) but, lo and behold, it charges just fine on our phone chargers!
On the Amazon cords it seems to charge erratically or not at all. On the phone cords the charge is consistent and fully charged. What gives? Other than the reasonable expectation that the kindle cords should work it is irritating because the phone cords are shorter and make it difficult to use the kindle while it is charging.
Any explanations/advice out there?
