Kindle DXG power adapter and case question
I am planning to order a Kindle DXG(US plug/adapter). It will be hand-carried to the UK (UK plug) and then to Greece (EU plug).
I'd like to charge it and test it while I am in the UK. I also need a sturdy cover to transport it with. I am thinking of ordering the official Kindle cover (expensive though) + the clip thingy for protection. Are there any other options for the new DXG size Kindle?
For plug adapter and charging - I have a Linux netbook. I cannot run the Kindle app, but can I charge the device from the netbook USB?
Also, can I just buy a Universal Plug adapter (with surge protector - for about $5) or should I buy the official Amazon Kindle DX plug ($20) for the EU?
Has anyone just used a non-Amazon plug adapter to convert US to EU plug?
Thanks for any assistance!
