Q: What's the difference between a $19.99 Amazon 5W USB Official OEM Charger and Power Supply and a $5.95 5V 1A (1000mA) USB port power supply - UL Listed?
A: $14.04 Calling it a 5W charger rather than a 5V 1A charger is a distinction without a difference.

As an OEM replacement, I suppose its worth a bit more but this price is excessive. A similar product for my Amazon fire was purchased at Walmart for about $3

Does what it is suppose to do - power adaptor / charger.
Three stars because it's overpriced.
Be it known - ONLY adapter still need to buy in addition USB cord for product to work.

Works as advertised. However, I can't imagine why Amazon doesn't include it with the Kindle. I know of no other product that does not supply an item that is essential to its use. Amazon should include this with the Kindle. So, remember, add the price of one of these to the price of the Kindle to get the "real" price of the Kindle. That is why I gave it three stars. Come on Amazon, stop the misleading pricing on the Kindle.

This is the THIRD power charger that I have HAD to buy at cost of over $30 each since my Kindle Fire purchase. Why can't the chargers last a REASONABLE amount of time? When I connected this charger, I received a message saying that it was a LOW level charger & it probably would not charge while the Kindle was in use. NOT ACCEPTABLE for this cost!!!

Gave this to my son along with the kindle I got for him for Christmas and he pronounced it totally unnecessary as a charger comes with the kindle that plugs right into your computer. This might be useful if you took long trips (the kindle battery lasts for weeks) but I doubt it. Don't waste money on this.

It works fine but is waaaay overpriced especially when the connecting cable isn't included in the price. $20,00 for an item that should cost about $5.00 and also include the cable. .Therefore 3 stars.

Does the job. Not often needed as the charge on the kindle lasts so long..

Meet my needs but feel should be supplied when actually purchasing the Oasis E-Reader.

Reliable and well-regulated for dual voltage (110-120v and 220-240v) without too much heat generation in Europe/Asia.
