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:
