When I first got it I was pleased with my purchase. But, within two or three weeks it stopped fitting tight and tends to wiggle and I know I'm correct because my kindle beeps, as if I had pulled the plug out. It is now slower to charge. The cord isn't very long, I can deal with that. But, I did want a fast charge. I'm disappointed.
This charger does not work well with my Kindle Fire tablet. The battery charge continues to go down as I use it when connected to this cord. The cord works well to charge my Kindle Paperwhite ereader. I am disappointed in the performance. I wanted this as an extra cord so I could carry the one with folding prongs in my purse in case I needed it for my ereader when away from home.
This is better than the charger that came with the Kindle, as it doesn't heat up and has a sturdy cord connection to the USB plug (original now has exposed wires). I looked at cheaper ones, read various complaints, and glad I chose this one, even tho it's a little more expensive than others.
I was not happy that I had to purchase this product so this review is just fair. I bought a newer Kindle and the cord just fell out and did not charge. This one seems to be working so far. Just to be fair Amazon did refund the money but the customer service I am used to was a nightmare. I hope this is not a glimpse of the future.
I own a kindle fire, i need a new charger assuming so as my kindle no longer turns on even after being charged several hours. My kindle is 7.5"x5 " overall screen size 6"x4" according to the description of the charger I purchased my Kindle fell in the parameters . It does not fit my Kindle, and I have no printer to print the return label. can you help me locate a charger for my Kindle as i have no series numbers to go by.
They shouldn't advertise this as a fast charger. I've had fast chargers in the past and this isn't it. It takes quite a long time to charge, I would say twice as long as an actual fast charger. It gets the job done , but it won't happen fast. It seems to fit in my kindle better than the other faster chargers that I've had before. The cord could be longer because I have to have it plugged in when playing games and it's not that long.
I bought a charger & within 6 weeks the connection was so loose I couldn't charge my tablet. Worse, I couldn't use the tablet while charging since the cord would fall away because of the loose connection. Thinking it was just a fluke, I bought another. Six weeks later, same problem. So, I have to buy yet another charger, but it won't be this brand ever again.
