Yes. They'll give you a new one anyway, but it'll be the same branded USB micro-B connector you already get with the Kindle Keyboard.

Thankfully they are using the industry accepted standard for power adapter connectors, so most micro-USB power adapters for phones, readers, and small electronic devices should work.

Does that mean the Kindle charger is interchangeable with my iPhone charger? I don't have to carry both of them around?

Evidently so! I just did it. Live and learn (browse and learn?).

The fire may require more current that is available in a cell phone charger.

The charger is included, but Amazon also sells it separately (ASIN: B005CKAX82):
Quote:
Product Features

Approved charger for the Kindle Fire
Fully charges Kindle Fire in 4 hours or less
INPUT (AC): 100-240V, 50/60Hz
OUTPUT (DC): 4.9V, 0.85A
Not all chargers will provide 0.85A, but the Fire can also be charged (more slowly) from your computer via USB. So any wall charger should work, since they typically provide at least as much power as a computer USB port.

Don't always count on that being the case for everything though. I once used a different charger for something and the power went out in the entire house after plugging it in.

I once used the wrong charger by mistake and killed my MP3 player but it's great that the device industry is moving toward a universal charger format. Most now are MicroUSB It's something I check now before buying.

YES I'm so glad that they came and finalized the standard for the power cords because it was just getting way out of hand.. And I'm sure it's cheaper now that they are all in agreement.


Most chargers now are 5V output with a max rate of 1A output
