Kindles are brilliant little devices, but even they get power hungry every now and then. If you’re a real word hound or you use the device’s 3G capabilities often, then you’ll need to keep it fully topped up no matter where you are. This article is for you – in it, we’ll describe all the Kindle charger options available and which are right for you. Now let’s get right into the subject at hand!
This Micro USB Charging pack contains three essential items. Firstly, there’s a spare Kindle charger cable that charges the Kindle over USB. However, if you plug this directly into a USB port you’re only likely to get about 500 mA of power – only half of the Kindle’s maximum charging rate. To unlock that extra potential, you’ll need to plug into either a car charger or a wall adapter.
Thankfully, both options are included. The Kindle mains charger is an all-in-one unit that means you can keep the USB cable elsewhere (like in your PC). It will provide the full 1A or 1000 mA of power necessary to charge the Kindle at full speed.
The Kindle car charger is also a viable option, also providing 1000 mA or 1 A of charging power for your Kindle. The car charger adapter plugs directly into the USB cable and is small and sleek, meaning it’s easy to keep in your glove compartment or in your bag.
Of course, you won’t always be next to a car or wall adapter. If you prefer to use your Kindle on the beach or out in the garden, then we’ve got a charger for you – the Energizer SP1000 Solar Power Rechargeable Battery Pack. While charging from solar power isn’t as fast as charging from a wall outlet, due to the Kindle’s low power requirements it’s a perfect match. In theory, you could read from your Kindle forever – you’d just need to stay in the sun!
I hope you found these two suggestions useful. If you have any questions or want to leave some feedback, please do so in the comments below. Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
