Just a heads up. I found out the hard way that a Fire HD won't get enough power from a standard computer USB port, but I figured I'd be good with one of my K3 power adapters. Well, it works, but that little sucker gets pretty toasty. You might want to think twice about not doing that, or at least doing it someplace where it won't be a fire (lol pun NOT intended) hazard.

I've been using my wife's iPad charger to charge the Fire HD and it works fine.
Also, you may want to check your computer and see if one of the USB ports is powered. For example, my MacBook Pro has two USB ports. The one closest to the back is powered but the other is not....so anytime I use my computer for charging, the powered port gets the job as it can provide more amps.
