an amazon order, not worth the purchase,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: HHI Car Charger For Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet (Package include a HandHelditems Sketch Stylus Pen) (Electronics)
The car charger for the Kindle Fire is the same charger that is used for the Samsung cell phone, etc. It used to be that chargers were not interchangeable, but now that they are, it would be nice to know that it isn't necessary to buy something you already have. In addition, the stylus, something I was very interested in using, is worthless. The Kindle does not respond to it and I find that I have to use my finger anyway.
It cost $8 + with shipping so it isn't worth my returning it. But I feel ripped off.
I thought I could count on Amazon to offer products that were of value.

I absolutely love using the stylus with my Kindle. It keeps the screen clean and I find it very responsive.

My Samsung, my husband's Samsung and my son's Samsung (all different Samsung phones) chargers do NOT fit the Kindle Fire charger. If yours does, then that's a fluke. Evidently most do not.
Just a FYI for those who read this review.

I found that my LG cell phone charger is identical and fits. So you might give it a try if you have one.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S II and my charger fits my Kindle Fire perfectly. Glad I found this review before buying a Kindle charger

I am so glad to hear that your charger works well with your Fire. Now if only I had purchased the car charger for the cell phone too. All of my LG chargers worked and I already had several.

Amazon is not to blame if you ordered something you did not need, nor is the product lacking in quality. Reviews are designed to tell other consumers about how well the product functions. However, I am glad you had this experience because I now know that this charger will work on my phone as well as the Kindle Fire. Since my car charger was lost some time ago, I will order this one and use it with both products, so it will definitely have value for me.

The only thing I would add to sfrisa is that the Kindle Fire charger has 4 times the amp output of a cell phone charger. Thus, the kindle fire charges much faster using the correct power adapter vs. a cell phone one. There is a difference.
