Before I get into the review of the Kindle charger, if you do not buy this charger with models, Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, and Kindle Touch, you will be paying $10 dollars extra. Before you purchase one of these e-readers, you will be asked to the right of the screen underneath the orange buy button to buy other accessories, go ahead and buy it.
You should buy this charger if you are going to buy one of the above Kindle readers because a charger does not come with it. By buying it together with your Kindle, you save $10. Otherwise, you will have to return and buy a charger for $20. I’m just trying to save my readers a little money.
Now, I will be writing a review on the Kindle charger that works with the Kindle, Kindle Paperwhite, and Kindle Touch. I own a few models and this charger so I can tell you how good it works. The name of this charger is Kindle US Power Adapter.
This Charger should not be used to charge a Kindle Fire if you have one. If you don’t want to spend the extra money for a charger, you can use your USB cord from your Smartphone if you have one. A Blackberry works real well. This kindle charger will work just about any place in the world (100-240V) as long as you have the right plug adapter.
Another way to charge your Kindle without springing for a charger is to use the USB cable that comes with the Kindle and connect it to your laptop and charge it this way. This Kindle charger will successfully charge all 3rd and 4th generation models. You can also use this charger for other mobile devices like an MP3 player, and a Blackberry Torch. I’m pretty sure these devices have a USB port which is needed to charge them.
I bought the Kindle charger because I wanted the Amazon logo and it gives me some piece of mind that I am using the right charger for my Kindle. It charges in a decent amount of time and it’s small and compact so it does not take up much room. It is also small enough such that it fits into one slot in a surge protector. On a side note, this charger is made in China.
If you are new to Kindle, I would highly recommend you buy the charger with your purchase because you may not always have access to your computer or laptop to charge it. When I say this I am speaking to students as well as people who travel a lot.
When you receive your new charger, it has a slick design and is made of high quality. It comes packaged in Amazon’s easy to open wrappings. There is no frustration to open this at all. Like I said before, it comes with a USB cord that you can even charge Jabra Bluetooth headphones. Also, if you are planning a trip to Europe, it works with all of the power settings there. You will just need a power outlet adapter.
Well, that’s all folks I hope you enjoyed reading this brief review of the Kindle charger and remember save yourself $10 by getting it before you checkout.
