This friend of mine suggested we used a resistor to lower the voltage to 1.8v... would it still fry my kindle? would it just not work?
At this point I think I'll just order a 1.8v adapter, but I'm curious...
Thank you for your time.
It should not, as long as the dropping resistor is giving the correct output voltage. Ohm's law is your friend in finding the correct value for the resistor.
So if you need 1.8 volts and you can get that by using a resistor, you should be fine.
