Kindle Fire HD comes without charger

Add US $9.99 if you want wall-charging


We could not miss the fact that Amazon's Kindle Fire HD tablet actually ships without a wall charger, or to be precise, ships only with a USB cable in case you want to charge the device.

Although this is not a big deal since there is always an USB or two ports free, some simply do not like their desktop or notebook to run if they want to charge their tablet. Since Amazon was so keen to compare its new Kindle Fire HD tablets with Apple iPad and Google Nexus 7, we must note that both come with a wall charger.

Of course, on its German site, Amazon is happy to offer the Kindle PowerFast-charger for €19.99 that will charge your Kindle in under 4 hours as opposed to 13.5 hours average (on the Kindle Fire HD 7) via included USB charging cable.

US customers can count themselves lucky, as the Powerfast charger sells for US $9.99 on Amazon.com. Of course, the Kindle PowerFast charger fits all Kindle devices.
