Computer restarted while charging Kindle for first time... is this a problem?

The title pretty much sums it up... my computer restarted while I was charging the kindle for the first time (a 30 sec - 2 min hiccup in charging) will this affect how my Kindle performs?

I've had my computer reboot while charging my Kindle and there was no problem. It should be fine.

i've not personally timed the difference but you'll get a shorter charge time using the wall-plug charger with the usb cable plugged into it.

quite correct, and mclarke012 has no location info evident so why not share that possibility.

Don't the refurbished Kindles come without a charger?

The UK Kindles come with a wall charger too.

And unless you was transferring files there should be no issue.
