Were you able to charge it from the wall in Israel? It looks to me that the only thing to do is find a plug with the prongs like they plug in Israel (cheap and easy to find there in any hardware store), and the AC adaptor that comes with the Kindle should do the trick. It is a 100-240 , 50/60 cycles adaptor, afterall. If somebody has an answer, please write.

Is this only an adapter plug or is it also a power converter to change European 240V to US 120V? That is, if you plug it directly into a European wall socket to charge the Kindle, will the higher voltage "fry its brains"? Do you have to use a voltage converter between this plug adapter and the wall socket?

Thanks.

Can I use my Blackberry charger to charge my Kindle? It fits, and shows it's charging - just scared I may damage the Kindle?

Thanks! This is exactly what I wanted to know. It's good to learn that while I'm in Europe, I can use the EU adapter by itself without using a converter. It makes life much simpler.

Cheers!

I am looking for a power adapter suitable for use in South Africa. Several stores have 3rd-party manufactured adapters but they all have varying output ratings from 700 milliAmps to 1 Amp. I have been told Kindle requires 2 Amps and will not charge with these lower-output chargers. Is this true?
