Just received my 8.9 Kindle and suspect I will like it as much as I do my other Kindles. However, I'm irritated it only came with a USB charging cable and not one that plugs into the wall. For this you need to purchase a unit that offers faster charging.

I know. That buggs me too. They do give you a 50% discount on the plug if you order it with the kindle. Maybe if you call, you can still get it.

Just use one of your existing chargers if you still have them.

I did get the problem resolved to my satisfaction. It seems to me it ought to come complete and ready to charge and use.

My complaint is that it should come ready to use and not require further purchase or depend on what I have at home. Reminds me of when gaming systems first came out and you had to run back to the store for a variety of cables and power supplies.
