can kindle 2nd generation with keyboard reader car charger, be used with my new kindle fire hd 7" ?

Probably, but it will most likely not be able to keep up, if you're wanting to use the Fire at the same time.

Thank's Meya, just wanted to know if the same charger can be used for either device.

tons of similar questions... SEARCH ->
BTW - Is there an official Amazon Kindle Car Charger ?
What charger are you already using - look at the "output" text.

Most all of the USB chargers/adapters can be used,
as long as the connector is the right one - mini vs micro -

HOWEVER, look at the OUTPUT of the charger/adapter...
read the tiny printing on it.
You really need MORE charging capacity
for a LCD screen device compared to the e-ink e-Readers.

The standard USB port spec is - 5v @ 500ma (.5 amp) - 2.5 watt
Kindle small white AC adapter is - 5v @ 850ma (.85 amp) - 4.25 watt
Amazon 5w AC adapter - 5v @ 1.0 amp = 5 watt
--> Amazon Kindle 5W USB Power Adapter
Amazon 9w AC adapter - 5v @ 1.8 amp = 9 watt
--> Amazon Kindle 9W PowerFast Adapter for Accelerated Charging

I have a Belkin USB charger that I use for "everything" - 5v @ 2.1 amp = 10+ watt
