Thanks for all the information, I appreciate it! I'll probably just charge from a PC.
Actually, I just realized that the Fire HD "PowerFast" wall charger -that I am also going to purchase - is 5v output, so this would probably work.
It's like a crash course in android, apps, bluetooth, and tablet technologies. Good thing I like learning - thanks again!
