Compact Device Charges Original Fire, Kindle Keyboard in Less Time,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Amazon Kindle 9W PowerFast Adapter for Accelerated Charging (Accessory)
When I preordered an 8.9" Kindle Fire HD, I also ordered one of these KINDLE POWERFAST ACCELERATED chargers. It shipped immediately, and does exactly what I was hoping for. It charges my heavily used original Kindle Fire in substantially less time. It also charges my Kindle Keyboard in less time. Amazon promises a time savings of about 25%, which seems about right, although it may actually do a little better.
The standard Kindle USB connector cord plugs into the charger, and the charger plugs into any standard electrical outlet. Amazon says that the charger is designed for use with Kindle Fires and Kindle e-readers, so I didn't test the charger with anything else. I also labeled the charger so that I won't forget that it's intended for Kindles. This little square, black, boxy charger is easy to store and carry along with a Kindle Fire. I much prefer it to the earlier Kindle Fire charger that consists of a power cord with permanently attached "wall wart".
EDIT 10/1/12: The Amazon product description now states that the charger will not charge an e-reader like my Kindle Keyboard any faster. That was not my impression, but the device definitely charges my original Fire in less time. I still like the fact that I can use the fast charger with both Kindle devices.
