This is obscene. How dare Amazon remove an item present in all the previous iterations of their product in order to gouge unsuspecting customers $20. My last Kindle (/w typepad) came with the USB cable *and* this adapter in the box. Every piece of modern electronics comes with a wall plug suitable for the region being sold.

This adapter can be found on sites like monoprice.com for a dollar including the cost of shipping because manufacturing this part takes *pennies*.

Tech savvy people know this and will go to other more reasonable cost sources. Except those who cannot afford (for whatever reason) the wait of 7/10 days for shipping from alternate sources. So, Amazon has decided to exploit its customers here by taking away an industry standard included accessory (even Apple for god sakes includes a wall plug) and then charging a 2000% premium to get it quickly.

People who aren't so tech savvy? Well they'll get their new Kindle in the mail *expecting* (rightly) to find a charge plug in the box. Not knowing what to do they'll return to Amazon's site site and pay $20 unwittingly.

This is absolutely pathetic Amazon and not at all the kind of nickle-and-dime bullsh*t corporate tactics I expected from you. I will not be purchasing a new Kindle.

Way too expensive for what you are getting. Wouldn't it be nice if Kindle would include this with every new Kindle e-reader.

This is a rip-off from amazon as it should be oncluded with the kindle purchase. There was no explanation as to why it is not included.

I am giving this a 2 not because it is not good but because I think you should include one with a Reader purchase, You used to, I don't know why you stopped and it is more expensive then others, So, my suggestion would be to include 1 with each new device sold.

What more can you say about an adapter.... it works.

Biggest beef..... it should be included with ALL Kindles..... kind of a cheap deal to make you purchase it separate.

Although the product itself is of good quality and I'm pleased with its performance, it should have been included with the purchase of my Kindle at no extra charge. Boo, Amazon.

This is an item you can easily find on its own for free shipping under $5 There is no use for this and the price it is at.
Although, I would normally recommend buying this elsewhere, you can actually find it on Amazon.ca for cheaper.

This serves the EXACT same purpose. I can confirm that it works for things other than phones.
If you want these little gizmos for cheap, go to [...]
