Does the Kindle Fire HD come with a wall charger or does that have to be purchased also??

The Product Description page says the Fire HD comes with a USB cable, and a 5W power adaptor...which is the wall plug that connects to the USB cable, and to the Fire HD. You can, I suspect, also still buy a 9W power adaptor, which is said to charge your Fire faster. That would be separate.

You can use ANY of the USB chargers that offers an output of 1.0 amp or more... more is better/faster.
ALL of the USB chargers use the same 5v output,
it's just the amps that is more or less,
and more will not hurt the device, just charge it faster,
it's like having a bigger bucket - but with the same small hole in the bottom.

5w = 5v x 1.0 amp = 5 watt
9w = 5v x 1.8 amp = 9 watt
