    (Accessory) The newly announced $79 Kindle, the Kindle Touch Wi-Fi and Kindle Touch 3G come with an iceuldnd USB 2.0 cable that you can use to charge your device by connecting it to a computer. But the specs also say: U.S. POWER ADAPTER SOLD SEPARATELY So you are going to need one of these if you ordered one of these Kindles. I guess that’s why they are 50% off. Amazon is trying to take some of the sting out of the deal for when everyone finds out that they need an adapter to plug/charge it in a wall outlet. In the past all Kindles came with the adapter iceuldnd in the purchase price. Welcome to the new AMAZON!Note: The Kindle Fire comes with both a USB cable and it’s own power adapter, so you won’t need one for the Fire.This is the same adapter that you should already have if you own one of the the latest generation Kindles, so no need to buy a 2nd one. I lost the adapter on my Kindle 3 and had to buy one of these. It works as it should, it charges the Kindle.

      Hi William,
      definitely worth pointing out about the US Power adaptor now being sold separately on those models…however, you don’t really need to buy a specialist Amazon power adaptor…I have a bog-standard USB power adaptor and that works great with my Kindle…it also comes with lots of other countries power adaptor plug-ins too so it’s great when I’m travelling 🙂

          Yep! I have a vested interest in Amazon continuing to make the Kindle….I believe it is the best e-reader out there and the more people that buy one, the more content will be made for them 🙂

      is considering ginvig Kindles away to Amazon Prime subscribers. This move would be in line with what I was suggesting a few weeks back and would put the Kindle into the hands of a lot more people. Amazon really needs to do something
