2.0 out of 5 stars Good luck removing this charger!, December 4, 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this charger because I wanted the option to charge my Kindle Fire at work. First, the Fire's battery life is amazing and I didn't actually need a charger, but the USB cord was great to transfer data using my laptop. The biggest complaint with this charger is the fact that if you push it all the way in the 12v receptacle, you are going to need something narrow to pry it out and probably some pliers unless you have an iron grip. I've seen other chargers that are designed to mount flush like this before but they usually have some type of d-ring to assist with removal. If you don't need to move the charger between vehicles then this charger would be fine.

Encountered the exact same issue. Sure wish I had read this review before purchasing. I purchased it in advance of a trip and never used it until after the return window had expired. Not happy- unacceptable for proper usage in my estimation.

I was seriously considering buying this charger. I came "this close" to clicking the Buy Now button! Phew! Thank you for you review.
I do need to find another option as my phone charger indicates it is charging but, does not actually hold a charge on the Fire. Very odd.

It's easy to remove it. Plug in a USB cable, grab the cable head and slowly rotate the whole adapter while pulling. It'll come out enough for you to grab with your fingers. You guys have seriously never tried this? Wow.

This is a recipe for breaking the USB socket.

John,
I, too, was thinking this suggested maneuver would eventually cause some damage.
