Very happy with this charger,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: [UL Listed] Pwr+ Extra Long 6.5 Ft Ac Adapter 2.1a Rapid Charger for Use with New Hd, Hdx Tablet, Phone Power Supply Cord for Accelerated Charging (Electronics)
I purchased the Pwr+ 2A Rapid Charger AC Adapter for my Kindle Fire because the charger that came with my unit did not appear to be adequately charging. This rapid charger works very well and charges much faster than my previous AC adapter/charger. I am having an issue with the port on the Kindle being somewhat loose lately (original Kindle Fire purchased in December 2011), but this charger works very well in spite of that, though I do have to jiggle the connection to make sure it is in direct contact. I will be looking into the connection port problem which is related only to the device, not the charger. That is the only reason I am only giving 4 stars; otherwise, it would be 5 stars. I highly recommend this product.

I have an older Kindle Fire and the same port issue as described here. My first step is to find a charger that works with my Fire - have unsuccessfully tried a handful. So I am encouraged to try this one. TY, Carol Botticelli.

I too have the first-gen fire and couldn't figure out if this device would work with it. "For use with the new kindle fire." Well, mine's certainly not new! So thanks for letting me know it works with the old kindle fire too.

I encountered the same port issue and my Kindle Fire would no longer take a charge. Amazon did exchange my Kindle for a new one, though. (And the port issue is a manufacturing defect, in that they didn't solder the port, so over time it moves.) Call Amazon customer service if you're still encountering charging issues. And thanks for the review of this charger... I can't wait to get mine.

Me too. My replacement died on Super Bowl Sunday after 10 months. I just bought a new Kindle Fire HD rather than try another refurb. original Fire. I love my Kindles despite problem, but it better not happen to new HD. Glad to know I'm not alone w this problem. Customer service at Amazon is great, tho, so staying loyal.
