5.0 out of 5 stars Good but should be free, August 2, 2010

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Amazon Kindle EU (European Union Universal) Power Adapter [Fits Kindle and Kindle DX] (Electronics)
And by that I mean this one should be shipped to EU countries instead of the US adapter so we wouldn't have to buy the same thing twice.

I agree!! This is one of my few cons with my new Kindle 3.

I made a claim and the nice lady at Amazon gave me a US15 credit to replace the US version that they shipped to Spain. Was chuffed with their customer service until i saw it costs US20 + freight. It's just a few bucks but after the runaround (and let's face it, EU regulations stipulate that electrical goods sold here must be sold with the correct plug) and their oversight, this should have been shipped free of charge.

Oh dear, does this mean I won't be able to charge my Kindle when it arrives? I also live in Spain and wanted to take the Kindle on holiday in a few days ... guess I'd better try and order it now!

@GH You may still charge it through USB, if you find that convenient.

No offense to anyone but Amazon also sells a us>eu converter plug for $1.39 (vs. Radio Shack which rips you off for more than that). One dollar and thirty-nine cents! Or would you rather continue to complain about the fairness of it all? :)

@Rehak

Yes, I would rather complain :). I don't want to carry around both a power cable and the adapter. Quality consumer electronics need to work out of the box, not force you to purchase an accessory you may or may not be aware that you need when you initially purchased the product.

it did cost around gbp9 but then add another 7 or so for frieght (to spain) and it went over the 15gbp they credited me. but that, as they say, is not the point. too much frigging around and as the previous poster has said, consumer electronics need to work out of the box.
