Basic USB to Wall charger, does its job.
on December 5, 2012
This does exactly what it is supposed to do, so I'll give it five stars. I had some confusion however when I purchased this item. I initially bought the Kindle ($69) as a gift and it says the power adapter is not included. I took this to mean that if I didn't also purchase this that the person would have no way to charge their new Kindle. I was even more confused when I received the item and there was no USB to Kindle cord. It was then that I realized that the Kindle does come with the cord, but just the cord. So the person is able to hook the Kindle up to a computer. If you want to be able to plug it into the wall, that is what this is for and it is just the plug end that is pictured here.
Others have said and I do agree that you could probably get a cheaper version of this, or you may already have one with all the devices these days that use USB to charge (ipod, iphone etc). However, giving it as a gift I thought it looked nice to have the official charger to go with it, buying at the same time as Kindle I got this for $9.99.
