works well for recharging my Kindle 1.0
on April 4, 2008
iGo sells power chargers and also small connectors (called "tips") that connect the chargers to specific electronic devices. The chargers and the tips are sold separately. The idea is that instead of carrying a separate charger for each device you own, you can carry one iGo charger plus connecting tips for your various devices. The Kindle tip listed here is not useful by itself - you also need an iGo charger.
I bought the Kindle tip with the iGo Everywhere Universal Wall Charger as a spare AC charger for my Kindle.
It works well. The pieces (charger, cable, tip, kindle) plug together snugly.
The main drawback is the combination of charger + retractable cable + tip is getting on for twice the size of the native Kindle charger. But the iGo charger can also be used for other devices.
Update February 9th 2009: The Kindle 2 was announced today! It has a new data+power socket using the Micro-USB standard. The tip described here is for the Kindle 1 and won't work with the Kindle 2. The corresponding tip for the Kindle 2 is the iGo Tip A97.
