Another Crumbling Cable,
This review is from: Amazon Kindle Replacement USB Cable, White (Works with Kindle Fire, Touch, Keyboard, DX, and Kindle) (Accessory)
A couple months ago my sister asked me if my cable was crumbling like hers. At the time it was not, but just today as I began to plug my cable in I noticed it too has begun to shed the plastic coating exposing the wire. I'm thinking Amazon should consider this cabling a defective product and replace all Kindle owners cables as a "good will" gesture.

A number of others have had this problem too. Be sure to call Kindle support; they replaced mine (it was 1 1/2 years old) for no charge to me, including 1 day shipping.

Just tried for a couple year old Kindle DX and they flat out refused to replace it.

I'm surprised. My Kindle 2 is older than that and Amazon just replaced it for me. I emailed them and they responded in an hour with instructions on how to replace it. Try again.

Amazon's support is one of the best I have EVER had to deal with. My kindle got broken, they replaced it free of charge including a FREE fast shipping to my location in Poland, also paid for a return of the broken one, any questions? ; ] great.
