Question Kindle 3 serial cable

Hello folks,

As per object I'm trying to get a serial cable for my (bricked) kindle 3.

What do you think would happen if I took a standard 5V usb/ttl cable and lowered the voltage to 1.8? A friend of mine volunteered to do the trick, but I'm still not sure it's a good idea.

Would it work? Is there a chance it would damage my kindle?

Please advice.


PS: I know 1.8v adapter would be the optimum but 5V are a lot cheaper and waaay easier to find....
