If says 5V, comply to 5V. If 850mA, better is to stay even or up.
We could argue over smaller amperage, but there is no reason to
avoid pretty cheap chargers. Smaller amperage charger heats. I
would not use it, spite arguments for.

They're all 5V units, I do the opposite, I use my Kindle lead to charge my Galaxy Note
The connector (USB Micro-B) should always only ever carry 5V. The current you don't have to worry about, as devices only consume what they need.

I have a lot of things that need to be charged, and I found this handy device (I think at "Smarthome").
I installed it at desktop level and wired it from an outlet just below it, at floor level. It has 2 USB ports, and senses the power needs of any attached device, and shuts off the charging when the device is fully charged, although most devices today do that internally.
I find that it works great for iPhones, iPods and surely all things Apple, as well as Kindles. One big advantage is that I do not need to keep the transformers here for any devices that charge via USB cables, just the cords.
It's a little pricy, but very convenient and highly recommended.

I like it! Do you know what the amperage is of the usb's?
edit- answered my own question...5v 2.1A per usb outlet. (at Smarthome). didn't know these existed, thanks for the heads-up. Karma to you!

edit- It looks like there are issues with cables included with some Kindles and purchase of an extension cable might be needed:
