Wall charger alternative

Hi All

First post for me. New K3 owner, very happy. Didn't order the wall wart as I thought charging through the computer would be fine. However, I am going on a trip next week and thought I might take a backup. My Samsung camera uses a USB wall wart type charger which would also fit the kindle usb cable.
Specs are

samsung wall wart output: 4.4vdc 400mA

Kindle 3 specs: 5vdc 850mA

Will this work ok, or is the current mismatch significant?

Many thanks
